We’re just a few weeks away from the official launch event for the OnePlus 6 smartphone, so we should brace up to see even more leaks in the time leading up to the launch event. The latest of such leaks is that of retail images of what it is believed to be the legitimate protective cover of the upcoming device. While Oneplus hasn’t confirmed the authenticity of these cases, they, however, appear real as they corroborate previously leaked renders of the device.
OnePlus unofficial cases for the upcoming OnePlus 6 have surfaced online in clear, transparent and black options. The transparent option is an indication that these protective cases could have been made of Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) materials.
Protective cases usually do not reveal a thing about the device display front, but there are a couple of major features that can be spotted. First, the OnePlus 6 leaked cases reveal a camera cut-out designed in a manner that suggests the device will house a dual rear camera in a vertical alignment. Also evident is a LED and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which are both located just below the dual camera cut-out.
