The OnePlus One Box

    We, being “gadget addicts” ourselves, know that the one of the high points when getting a new product, is the holy ritual of unboxing. As we all know, a lot of great blogs and magazines have reviewed our OnePlus One last week, but the box is still to be seen.

    Today, we are happy to share this piece of gadget pr0n with you. The first real unboxing of the OnePlus One:


    The first thing you’ll notice when seeing the box are the well-known corporate white and red colors of OnePlus.


    The outer shell is white and embellished by a distinct but small OnePlus logo, centered on the far left side.


    On the right, you’ll see the red box sticking out with the OnePlus logo on the right side of it. Right above the logo, the minimalistic fabric strip will help you pull out the red box of the white shell. You will feel that both the box and the shell feel what could best be described as matte.


    Open it up, and you’ll immediately be presented to your brand new OnePlus One. It is carefully placed in the sinkage, held in place with the help of a discrete ribbon.



    Right next to it you’ll find the OnePlus logo, and by further examination, you’ll notice there is more.


    After removing the top, thin molded plastic layer, you’ll find a matte, bright red OnePlus card accompanied by two additional OnePlus accessories: the USB cable and the SIM ejector tool.


    The USB is colored in the same matte and light OnePlus red. Our engineers have employed the innovative flat cord design, knowing that tangling cords have been an issue for many technology lovers. It has nickel plated connections at both ends of the cord, giving it a touch of golden. On the Micro USB side, which connects to your OnePlus One, you’ll will once again find the OnePlus logo, discreetly engraved and reminding us all that the devil is in the details.


    The SIM ejector tool is made of stainless and durable steel, safely packaged in a soft, bendable rubber case in the OnePlus red color. Although well stored inside, it is quickly and effortlessly removed for immediate usage. The rubber case easily clips on to your key ring so you’ll always have it on you in case you’d need it. And yeah, it also has the OnePlus logo engraved.


    You might ask yourself, where does the wall charger fit? Don't worry, because here's where the "boxception" kicks in - This box will actually be protected by another box, that will contain the charger as well.

    As much as we would have preferred one of our first Smash the Past winners to have shared the unboxing of the One with everybody, we didn't have the boxes and accessories ready at the time we had to ship the phones to our warehouses in Europe and the US to be right on schedule. Since we didn't want our fans to wait any longer, we notified all our 100 smashers that they would receive the entire package later this month.

    I was kind of hoping for a raw cardboard motif along the lines of what people have been getting.

    Including an unshielded USB cable of course.

    (j/k Looks awesome, can't wait to open one)
