Protective Case Suggestions and Ideas

I know the unique design of the phone might make making a case a difficult prospect, but I'm simply too clumsy to use a phone without one. Are there any plans to design a case? 

I don't know what they are doing in the background, but Liangchen Chen has recently shared a tweet here about a case which seems to be a work in progress.

First testprint made last night. I've split the bottom up in 2 parts to figure out how well the fit is. there is some slight (2mm) missalignment of the buttons and usb-c header and the camera placemen

Just finished a quick sketch of the bottom part of the protective cover:   Will run a test print tonight to get first dimensions with hard plastic to see how the shell fits, then adjust

I made a leather pouch for the Pro1. I used cow leather, thickness about 2 mm. All the parts are glued with super glue gel adhesive which remains flexible. I made some holes to see the led and to get

Definitely better than nothing.

I'd really like a tightly fitting, as to not make the package even bigger, book-style case/cover (that I wouldn't have to customize myself to make controls and connectors fit properly), though...

Merged your thread into this much larger one, that shows a number of simple DIY solutions, as the base is very close to the size of the Huawei P20 pro. See e.g. this.

But definitely nice if we get at fitting base shell, thanks @VaZso for that link  👍

It was supposed to come with one originally, but they shipped it with a rushed fabric sleeve instead. 

Is been over a year or two now without an official peep about it, so safe to say there will not be one.

Edit: just saw that tweet from May 5th. That would be a start, but really too little too late to be teasing it when we obviously have been thirsting forever lol. 'what do to guys think' idk ship it to me and I'll let you know omg give it to meeeeeeeeee.

Found this „seal skin“ on japanese market. Would love to get kind of these, cause it protects from scratches while not adding more diameter.

The pic looks like a skin made for the Pro1.  Is it?  Do you have a link.  It's like the Dbrand Skin on my Pro1, but I used a Note 10 skin which had the right camera placement and trimmed the width for the Pro1.  Just curious if there is a skin that has actually been made for the Pro1 or if the image is doctored?

I cut a skin for my Pro1 bought at BestSkinsEver, but I also have a modified rubber case installed on top of that.

I don't know what kind of skin is the above one.

Hey guys, at least I found a kind of flip case fitting for my needs.
I don't carry my Pro1 with me a lot, so the bulky design doesn't matter and it's well protected at home 😄
I've bought it at this Etsy Store, not sure about international shipping but she's located in Munich. 

I like the idea of wrapping this elastic plastic stripes round the edge of the keyboard, so the display can close properly.

If you order you can tell an individual phones size, choose from the Pro1's data sheet h: 154mm; w: 73,6mm; d: 8mm (depth only keyboard). I also asked her to make the whole bag 5mm wider, to properly wrap it around the phone, when the bag is closed.

Keys are not impacted by those stripes and speakers are okay, too.

My tiny concerns:

-With the sizes mentioned above it's really pressed into the flexibal stripes. So maybe add 3mm in lenght and width to get a little more space.

-with all four stripes mounted the usb port isn't usable (camera button aswell), but it also fits really tight if you use just three of them, as the phone can't slip out to the bags "hinge". 

-Main camera has no hole, so not usable (I don't mind because i seem to have the focus defect, so don't use it anyway)

Maybe someone is interested or can craft something similar for themselfs 🙂
Have fun 👋
