While OnePlus phone in previous years had to wait weeks for viable name-brand cases to arrive, the OnePlus 9 Pro has ample selection right out of the gate, with major brands like Caseology, Otterbox, and Ringke all offering up great cases at a variety of price points. So if you're grabbing a OnePlus 9 Pro, we've rounded up the best cases available — because really, your shiny new flagship deserves nothing but the best.

The best OnePlus 9 Pro cases protect your investment

In previous years, OnePlus would put out multiple flagships in a year — which divided accessory makers' interest and led to fewer case options — but like last year, the OnePlus 9 Pro will be the one true OnePlus flagship for the year, and this means that we're getting plenty of name-brand case options for the 9 Pro, especially more protective and rugged cases. Considering the OnePlus 9 Pro's price tag, this makes all the sense in the world as nothing can turn that investment to ruin faster than a bad drop that leaves the screen shattered or the cameras cracked.

I'm especially a fan of the Ringke Fusion-X, which strikes a balance between a nicely protective bumper and still allowing the design and the hues of the OnePlus 9 Pro to shine through. I know the design is somewhat divisive — I love it, many hate it — but you can't deny the blend is striking, and the price is quite affordable. If you want durability but don't want such an aggressive look, both the Caseology Parallax and the Poetic Spartan are excellent options.

While you're looking at cases, keep in mind that you'll want to avoid overly thick cases, especially if you want to take advantage of the 50W wireless charging on the OnePlus 9 Pro. The thicker a case is, the more chance there is that the wireless charger won't work — or at least won't charge at full speed. Also, make sure to guard the front of your OnePlus 9 Pro by grabbing a great screen protector, too!

If you're grabbing the smaller OnePlus 9, those cases are likewise smaller but there are still great options.
