Breaking from its tradition of having metal designs, the OnePlus 6 sports glass panels front and back, protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Aesthetically, the OnePlus team has outdone itself, with the Midnight Black and Silk White variants being both pleasing to the eye and to the touch. As with all phones with glass designs, though, the OnePlus 6 will be a little more susceptible to damage with dropped and bumped, so it may be a good idea to get a case on it, and what better case than one made by Oneplus itself?
Silicone Protective Case Red
First up we have the basic case that boasts a soft microfiber inner lining for enhanced scratch protection and medical grade silicon on the outside. Available only in red, the Silicone Protective Case adds hardly any bulk to the phone’s profile and is available from the OnePlus store for $19.95/£17.95.
Protective Case Karbon/ Sandstone
Next is the shell-like or Protective Case as OnePlus calls them, available in either Karbon or Sandstone. The Karbon version has a faux carbon fiber design while the Sandstone is a OnePlus favorite with its added texture and grip. Both cases feature raised edges to protect the display when laid on flat surfaces and add minimal bulk to the OnePlus 6. The Sandstone retails for $19.95/£17.95 while the Karbon costs a little more at $24.95/£23.95.
Flip Cover Black
The Flip Case offers all-around protection for the OnePlus 6 while bringing added functionality into the mix with its built-in card storage. Constructed from PU leather, the flip case lets you access the home screen by lifting the front flap if you have Face Unlock enabled and when you close the flap, the OnePlus 6 will go to sleep. With faux stitching around the edge of the case and a tasteful OnePlus logo on the lower corner of the front flap, the Flip Case offers an understated solution to your protection needs. You can grab the Flip Case directly from OnePlus for $19.95/£17.95.
If that isn’t enough choice, we have the bumper cases that come in 3 designs; Nylon (Black), Karbon, and Elite Ebony Wood. The bumper cases wrap around the edge of the OnePlus 6 protecting against impacts. Both slim and lightweight, the bumper cases feature precise cutouts for easy access to the control button and charging port. The Nylon variant features a finely woven texture to provide a comfortable grip; the Karbon version has a geometric design that is instantly recognizable, while the Elite Ebony design boasts a smooth surface and appears wood-like. The Nylon (Black) bumper case is $24.95/£23.95, while the Karbon and Ebony Wood cases are $29.95/£27.95.
