All the hype that OnePlus had been generating through the teasers on its social channels has turned out to be somewhat of a bummer. We were expecting the company to unveil leather back panels for its 2 smartphone, but we have instead been greeted by a highly expensive lather case.
Dubbed the Hard Graft Wild Phone Case, this accessory for the OnePlus 2 has been handmade in Italy. It has its price set at a whopping $100, and is already available for purchase on the company’s global website. There’s no word on when it will be hitting India and what retail value it will be carrying along with it.
This particular case for the device has been crafted by the folks over at Hard Graft. It has been made from washed and traditionally tanned leather, and lined with wool in order to better protect the 2 handset. It houses two slim pockets inside it for storing cards and money.
The CEO of OnePlus recently issued an apology to fans for failing to provide a better buying experience through its new invite system. In order to make up for this, the company will soon be holding an open sale for the device for one hour. The exact date and time for this sale is still to be disclosed however.
