OnePlus releases iPhone 6S case – But it's fighting dirty
Published 01/12/2015 | 02:19
OnePlus has produced an iPhone 6S case, but it's hoping to get Apple customers to jump ship, offering an invite to buy the OnePlus X.
OnePlus’ latest product is a case that fits the iPhone 6S rather than its own handsets. This isn’t to make peace with Apple; instead, it’s taking the fight to its rival by targeting iPhone 6S owners in a roundabout way.
The product is described as “the perfect gift for your non-techie friends." By that, it means that your friends would have to know next to nothing to own an iPhone. Ouch.
The case, which fits the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6, also comes with an invite to buy the OnePlus X, the latest smartphone from OnePlus. A guaranteed way of being able to buy a OnePlus device may be all that your friend needs to jump ship, thus rendering your actual present redundant. Or you could simply keep the invite for yourself, essentially purchasing yourself an invite for $19.99.
The OnePlus X is priced at $249. It features a full HD 5-inch display, 3GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera and 16GB of storage plus a microSD slot.
