OnePlus has really raised the bar in recent months, with new releases like OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X. Although it was a busy year, OnePlus ceased to rest as it consistently expanded the accessories' portfolio with additions like Hard Graft leather case for OnePlus 2, OnePlus Icons earphones among others. Now, in a surprising move, OnePlus has launched a new phone case with Sandstone finish designed for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s smartphones.
What better way to express the holiday spirit than sharing. OnePlus said its signature sandstone finish that houses an iPhone represents "something bigger". Comparing the new case to the fictional character from the popular Game of Thrones series, Jon Snow, OnePlus says it is "rough, yet charming, and one-of-a-kind (and definitely not dead)".
"Maybe you know someone who just went out and bought the latest iPhone. Maybe you were this close to getting them to see your side of things. This is your chance to leave your exasperation at the door and just show them what they're missing," OnePlus said in a blog post.
OnePlus is right in saying the Sandstone case for iPhone 6 and 6s represents something bigger. Clearly, it is one way to bring brand awareness among Apple fans. The signature sandstone material used in the new iPhone case is the same as the one found on the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 smartphones. And, it offers protection and better grip for the slippery iPhone models.
OnePlus phone case for iPhone 6 and 6s cleverly turns an iPhone into one of its own. The case covers the Apple logo and instead features a OnePlus logo. There are sensible openings for the bottom-facing speaker grille, audio jack and charging port, power button on the right, volume rockers and mute buttons on the left and the entire top bezel. There is a cutout for the camera on the rear that protects the bumped up module from wear and tear.
OnePlus also shared a video featuring the Sandstone phone case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. We have embedded the video for you below:
The OnePlus phone case for iPhones will be available in India exclusively on Amazon India mid-December for Rs. 1,199. The phone case is also available internationally from OnePlus' official website for $19.99. When you purchase the phone case for your iPhone 6 or 6s, you also get an invite to purchase the OnePlus X smartphone, a not-so-subtle way to turn iPhone fans into OnePlus users.
