The OnePlus One is a different type of smartphone. The startup behind it managed to put together a powerful handset with an entry-level price tag. So, in a market flooded with golden handsets, there’s no surprise that the folks behind this elusive device are doing something a little different. After a little bit of teasing, OnePlus officially announced the phone’s new bamboo “StyleSwap” cover today, which will be available to purchase at the end of August.

Priced at $49, this flamboyant shell will be accompanied by the OnePlus One’s standard black and white covers that will retail for $29 each. If you’re still not sold on the idea of a wooden smartphone cover, OnePlus has put together a promo video that hopes to win you over and if it does, hopefully your phone’s spiffy new backing will arrive on time — knock on wood.
