Only one Spigen OnePlus 6 case will be released

Only one Spigen OnePlus 6 case will be released

29th May 2018 0 By Sam Warrenger

Spigen have confirmed only one case design will be released for the new OnePlus flagship device. The single Spigen OnePlus 6 case available, shown above, will be part of the ‘Rugged Armor’ series.

Spigen’s Rugged Armor cases are already available for a wide range of smartphones. They all take on a very similar design, consisting of a thin and flexible black rubber shell, lined with ‘Air Cushion Technology’ which supposedly gives optimum shock protection.

The outside of the Rugged Armor cases feature carbon fibre textures for enhanced looks and a better grip, and the OnePlus 6 case has an almost identical design to those already available for other devices.

Spigen’s cases are generally highly rated by users and are one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality mobile device accessories.

Unfortunately, Spigen have today told Fuseboxed that this will be the only case they release for the OnePlus 6. It’s not yet available on their website or through their Amazon stores, and no estimated release date has been given.

UPDATE: As of 2nd June Spigen’s OnePlus 6 case is listed on Amazon UK. You can check out half a dozen images, but it’s not yet in stock or available to pre-order.  It’s not on the US site either.

UPDATE 2: The Spigen OnePlus 6 Rugged Armor case is now available from Amazon US, as below:

Whilst some prefer rubberised cases, other fans will be disappointed that Spigen will not release a hard shell or hybrid case for the new OnePlus flagship.

Spigen previously released a ‘Neo-Hybrid’ case for older OnePlus devices, such as the 3/3T case shown below. This case offered the protection of a rubber TPU case with a solid polycarbonate bumper.

Fuseboxed is unaware of any hybrid / two-part cases that are currently available for the OnePlus 6, though this is likely to change. The new smartphone was only released one week ago today, so expect the case manufacturers to catch up fast as they race to release new designs.

Another leading case manufacturer, MNML, have confirmed they will not release a case for the OnePlus 6. They told TechRadar that “OnePlus changes models too often, so we end up stuck with a lot of unsold inventory.”

OnePlus confirmed last week that the next software update for their device will fix autofocus issues on the rear camera, along with status bar and do-not-disturb mode tweaks.
