    For the OP5T? Haven't found them yet then.
    Looking for Spigen Neo Hybrid case to become available.

    Probably because 5T is still quite new and while Oneplus is popular, it isn't Apple or Samsung popular and most retailers will take about a month to get to their senses and start buying stock.

    Because it may be a huge launch here in these forums but elsewhere all the money is to be made selling accessories for iPhones or Galaxy phones. Even the Pixel does not have a ton of stuff available.

    Apple and Samsung sell in the 10's of millions of phones per quarter. OnePlus has not sold that many phones to date since its inception with the OnePlus One.

    If they continue growing their brand, improve on their camera and provide regular updates without alienating former customers by pushing out marginally better phones one after the other they may get there but they still have a long way to go.

    Without Verizon in the US and general carrier availability they will never reach Samsung or Apple levels in the US.

    Because the customer base of oneplus is nowwhere near that of Apple & Samsung. Even other well known brands struggle with this same issue.

    Like others have said prior to this post, Amazon is the place but I find that amazon sells A lot of crap so be diligent; read reviews & get something good. Don't do what I did & get a case for 7 bucks only for it to turn out to be made of crap materials and then the seller forcing me to pay MORE to ship it back. (I didn't send it back I kept it)

    Just like the oneplus 5, case options will be limited as oneplus just doesn't get the mainstream attention as other brands.
