On July 22, OnePlus fulfilled their promise and released an edition of the OnePlus One made of bamboo.


The bamboo OnePlus One has the same specs as the original OnePlus One. 2014072121494578864

There’s also no difference in the appearance other than the material used.2014072121494856988

The bamboo case adds a more natural texture to the OnePlus One and since the bamboo used for each phone is different, each bamboo phone has its own unique texture.



The OnePlus One’s logo is carved on the back of the original phone while spray coating is used to put the logo on the bamboo version.
