It’s not entirely clear whether iPhone users will be willing to spend $20 to buy a case from a company that’s synonymous with high-spec, low-cost Android phones, but the company seems to think that there will be some demand for it in the U.S., Europe, and India, where it can be purchased online now (free shipping, too).
The company also hopes that, given we’re coming up to Christmas, some ardent OnePlus fans may buy these covers as cheeky little gifts for their iPhone-toting friends. It said:
“For us and for many of you, Sandstone represents something bigger. Maybe you know someone who just went out and bought the latest iPhone. Maybe you were this close to getting them to see your side of things. This is your chance to leave your exasperation at the door and just show them what they’re missing.”
In an interview with VentureBeat last month, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei revealed he was an iPhone-user prior to starting his current company, and he was complimentary of Apple’s products. And now, he’s trying to tempt other iPhone users over to the “dark side” by letting them experience what it’s like to hold a OnePlus phone in their hands.
