Personalizing the smartphones has become a great trend in the recent past. Seeing a huge potential, many smartphone makers are jumping into the smartphone accessories market which was once ruled by some independent companies. At the end of last week, OnePlus has teased that something luxurious would be coming soon with the tagline “A bit of welcome luxury.” And today, OnePlus has released its new luxurious accessory for OnePlus 2.
OnePlus has launched a leather case for OnePlus 2 and is called the Hard Graft Wild Phone Case. The case comes from Hard Graft, which is known for its premium accessories for smartphones. According to OnePlus, the case is handmade in Italy, crafted with “ash grey washed and traditionally tanned buttery soft leather.” It comes with a couple of pockets for securing credit cards and cash. The case costs you $99.99 and can be bought from the OnePlus store.
The OnePlus 2 is the second smartphone from the Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus Inc. and comes with premium hardware at a pocket-friendly price tag. The smartphone was launched a couple of months back with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, powered by Snapdragon 810 v2.1 chipset coupled with a whopping 4GB RAM for 64GB variant. It runs on the company’s own Oxygen OS 2.0 which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and is backed by a 3300 mAh battery. Even at a jaw-dropping price tag of $389 for 64GB variant, the makers managed to include trending features like fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C port.
That being said, even though the Hard Graft Wild Phone Case definitely looks premium and top of the class, it hardly makes sense to shell out nearly one-third of the phone’s price on a case. Currently, the leather case seems to be out-of-stock with no word on when it will be available again. You can check the availability and purchase the leather case from the OnePlus store link below.
However, if you’re looking for some low-price alternatives for your OnePlus 2, you can browse through a variety of cases from the Oneplus store.
So, do you think the $100 price tag for a phone case if justifiable on any grounds?
