These are the best cases, covers and skins for the OnePlus Nord

The OnePlus Nord was announced last month with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, 90Hz display, and a quad rear camera setup at an exciting starting price of ₹24,999/€399. The phone has made its way into the hands of reviewers and users alike, and it’s likely to be one of the most recommended smartphones for its price range. If you have already purchased the OnePlus Nord, here are some of the best cases, covers, and skins you can get to protect and style up your new smartphone.

    Simple and basic

    The official OnePlus Nord Clear Bumper Case is the most basic first-party case from OnePlus, ensuring perfect compatibility with your new phone and decent protection.

    Signature Finish

    The official OnePlus Nord Sandstone Bumper Case (Black) adds the signature Sandstone finish to your device, while ensuring perfect compatibility with your new phone.

    Sandstone Blue

    The official OnePlus Nord Sandstone Bumper Case (Blue) adds the signature Sandstone finish to your device in a matching color, while ensuring perfect compatibility with your new phone.

    In is Out is in

    The official OnePlus Nord JerryRigEverything Creator Case lets you take a peek at the internals of the device without needing to open up your phone.

    Black Bumper, Clear Back

    The Spigen Ultra Hybrid Matte Black takes the transparent and flexible case, adds toughness to the back for extra protection, and a matte black bumper.

    When you need more protection

    The Spigen Rugged Armor is one of the most popular choices for flexible TPU cases that boast of shock absorption while still being fashionable.

    Gets the job done

    This case from Mobistyle has a rubberized matte finish on a semi-transparent case with different accent choices, along with protection even for the camera island.

    Gets the job done

    This protective case comes with a soft and flexible, transparent design. The corners are reinforced, and the lip is raised all around. It's a basic case that gets the job done well, and for cheap.

    Grip, Protection and Style

    The Kapaver Impulse is a hybrid case with a transparent polycarbonate back and a TPU bumper for shock absorption. Available in Sea Blue and Moon Gray colors for bumper.

    Greater Protection

    This case comes with a tough armor setup with a few nice extras. The case includes a magnetic holder built-in, as well as a holding ring that also doubles up as a kickstand.

    Fold it close!

    If you want to protect both the front and back of the device, this flip cover is for you. It has a leather finish, can work as a kickstand and is available in Blue, Brown, and Black.

    Rugged but Sleek

    Ringke's Fusion X series comes with a rugged exterior for better grip, raised lips for better protection, transparent back, and lanyard holes on both sides for neck or hand straps.

    Customization and protection!

    Grip cases from Dbrand are not only known for offering military-grade impact protection, but also for their easy compatibility with the company's wide variety of skins!

    Fun Customizations!

    Skins from Dbrand are one of the easiest ways to customize your device. These skins range in color and finishes with basic scratch protection, and you can create your own combinations!

    Skins, but in India

    Capes India is a Dbrand-alternative for skins. They have glass back and full coverage options, plus skins for the charger and cable connectors, as well as Camo and Concept One skins!

As you can see, there’s a wide variety of cases on offer for the OnePlus Nord. What you end up choosing depends on what you prefer and on your budget. If you have a higher budget, you can always opt for the official cases which offer the maximum compatibility with the phone and other official accessories. OnePlus’s official cases also feature the signature Sandstone finish that the company first used on the OnePlus One. OnePlus also has some unique Creator cases, such as the famous Teardown graphics co-created with Zach from JeryyRigEverything.

Higher budget spenders can also look for tried-and-trusted brands like Dbrand — not only do they have great offerings that provide the ultimate in protection, they also have a history and reputation of consistently providing such protection. Otterbox does not have an official case for the Nord just yet and considering that the phone is not coming to the USA, we aren’t sure if they will offer one in the future. Lower down the line, options from Spigen, Ringke, and some other domestic brands give you a wide variety of choices.

You can go completely clear and flexible with thin see-through cases, or opt for a re-inforced bumper, or go for a more rigid TPU shell, or even go for flip covers for added style. If you don’t want to add any thickness to your device, you might want to opt for a skin instead — they offer basic scratch protection and smudge-protection, plus they really help you add a unique look to your device with ease. Options for skins include the trusted Dbrand for international customers and Capes India for those looking for quicker shipping in India. Choose your pick!

Of course, all of these cases are for the OnePlus Nord. If you haven’t already bought yours, you can buy yours from the links below, or check out all the best OnePlus Nord deals!
