OnePlus had disrupted the smartphone market by introducing its affordable flagship last year. But today, the Chinese company finally teased Apple fans and launched the first-ever ‘Sandstone’ case for iPhone to make a new historical move.
The ‘Sandstone’ case by OnePlus is exclusively designed for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, with the same sandpaper-like finish that the company provided on the last year’s OnePlus One and this year launched OnePlus 2. The case offers a strong grip in hand due to its rough, textured design on the rear but comes in a thick build that increases the weight of the latest iPhone models. The design prevents accidental slips that are quite often with slim-built handsets like the iPhone.
To give a focus to its offering, OnePlus has additionally bundled a OnePlus X invite with the iPhone case. This certainly shows that the Shenzhen-based company is not just pleasing the iPhone users but persuading them to buy the newly launched OnePlus model. “We made this because, well, it’s the holiday season. Sharing is caring. It’s not just about a case,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“For us and for many of you, Sandstone represents something bigger. 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.”
Engraved with a OnePlus logo, the ‘Sandstone’ case comes with a price tag of $19.99 in the US and Rs. 1,199 in India. This price includes the shipping charges as well as the bundled OnePlus X invite. Of course, you need to pay more to get the OnePlus X itself.
