    Hello, first of all i have to say i always liked the way OnePlus makes it's cases, but i somehow always expected them to make a leather case. I know OnePlus already did offer a leather case in flip form but i have to be honest and say i was never into it, flipping it open every time i use my phone would be more than frustrating for me because i use my phone a lot and i am scared of damaging my screen with magnets provided to keep the case closed.

    As i already mentioned in the title i want them to release one for it's upcoming flagship OnePlus 7 pro as i am planning to upgrade from my 6T, don't get me wrong, 6T is the best phone i ever had bar nun, i even bought a samsung note 9 for my moms birthday and i have to say that i wasn't really impressed, my 6T felt so much smoother and build quality is surprisingly better as i noticed a lot of tiny scratches on note 9's back. However not to make this too long i just wanted to say that leather case in form of protective case would be amazing, and i am probably not the only one to say that. A lot of people requested this and i am desperately trying to point it to OnePlus itself that we want this, third party cases often don't have OnePlus logo on them and i'd rather buy it from OnePlus itself if the case is supposed to protect my ~820€ phone from damaging.

    To be more clear, i want it to look like one of the iPhone leather cases as i always liked the look of brown/black combination on the phones. So i will attach an example for you to understand better what i mean.

    Thank you in advance and i wish you a nice day.

    It would definitely look cool in black as well, it would probably be the most popular OnePlus case ever.

    They can, in fact they ruined my mom's old phone, after months of using flip cover her phone there was some kind of a stain on the screen, it was yellow like the screen was burned, but it wasn't AMOLED so i am not sure.

    I would love to see it in multiple options.
    Black and Brown would be awesome.

    I agree wholeheartedly about the leather case concept , especially in black or espresso. ;)

    What do you think @David Y. ?

    My preference is not important regarding this leather case idea, just passed it to the accessories product team.

    The leather back case does seem to be on trend at the moment, especially with apple and Samsung. Maybe oneplus will follow this trend and introduce one themselves.

    no, there's NFC so no need for a wallet in most cases (at least in my country), and there's gorilla glass so no front cover necessary

    Actually OnePlus did make a leather case for the op3/T. :p

    here is a link where you can still see the pics and specs. :)

    But not sure what happened to it, because it vanished quite quick from the store and never returned again. :(

    I'm one more that would love to see that happening. :p I really like the karbon bumper, and been using it for a couple of years on my OnePlus device. :sweatsmile: But the truth that I would like to change a bit on the next device, but if the options will be the same I will probably end up getting the same case if I decide to upgrade my op6 to the op7.

    I really like the Oficial cases OnePlus does, but I do feel that its needing a refresh in terms of the different options available,

    That's actually amazing, thank you for bringing it up. At the time i purchased my OnePlus 3T they only had a few cases including the leather flip cover but i ended up buying third party cases. I think the type of case from photo i provided would be amazing as leather stays good-looking even after few years of use, and i would really like to see a case that would be able to show the edges of your device, having a black case is like having bezels all around the screen. I do know that OnePlus did offer cases in another color but leather/black is best color combination in my opinion.

    Just to be clear i would be really disappointed if they just pass the same cases on OnePlus 7 and 7 pro, some people like those cases but as you said something new would be cool.

    This case came out a bit later and not right after launch, but the same way it appeared it disappeared. :sweat: Not many were able to get it.

    I like the black leather combination, but even it it was a camel/brown one would look good. :D

    lets hope so. :)
