Android Phone Maker OnePlus Launches ‘Sandstone’ iPhone Case Just In Time For Xmas.

The $20 black sandstone cover brings the distinctive rear casing of both the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2, which launched a few months back, to Apple’s smartphone.EW YORK, Dec 2 — Chinese manufacturer OnePlus has launched a case for the iPhone 6 just in time for the Christmas shopping period, reports The rear panel of the OnePlus phones has a texture a little like sandpaper, and is designed to not only feel pleasant, but to be easier to hold onto, compared to other slicker devices on the market. The launch of the new Sandstone case from OnePlus follows the release of the brand’s two new Android phones earlier this year, with the launch OnePlus 2 phone this summer and the OnePlus X phone in October.

The product is described as “the perfect gift for your non-techie friends." By that, it means that your friends would have to know next to nothing to own an iPhone. Today’s news comes a week after OnePlus began offering refunds for USB Type-C cables, following criticism from a Google engineer that they do not meet the required specifications.

An iPhone product is a surprising move from the Android manufacturer, with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei explaining in a statement, “Although most of my friends have converted to the OnePlus family, there’s still a handful stuck with iPhones. It’s not entirely clear whether iPhone users will be willing to spend $20 on a case from a company that’s synonymous with high-spec, low-cost Android phones, but OnePlus seems to think that there will be some demand for the case in the U.S., Europe, and India, where it can be purchased online now (free shipping, too). The company also hopes that, as we’re coming up to Christmas, some ardent OnePlus fans may buy these covers as cheeky little gifts for their iPhone-toting friends.

The finish is unlike other premium iPhone covers I’ve seen before, the texture gives you a strong grip and the case feels sturdy enough and heavy duty — I’m really not a fan of Apple’s all-silicon options. This is your chance to leave your exasperation at the door and just show them what they’re missing.” In an interview with VentureBeat last month, OnePlus cofounder Carl Pei revealed he was an iPhone-user prior to starting his current company, and he was complimentary when speaking about Apple’s products. For that price you’ll also get an invite to buy the company’s OnePlus X device — that’s a move that has had some people accusing OnePlus of effectively selling the invite.

Now, he’s trying to tempt other iPhone users over to the “dark side” by letting them experience what it’s like to hold a OnePlus phone in their hands. With our extensive experience in product design and obsessive attention to detail, we felt it was necessary to make a phone much better than what’s currently av… read more » In addition to the new case, we also got a glimpse at OnePlus’ new Icons headphones, which the company claims offers a competitively rich sound thanks to the inclusion of 11 mm drivers.
