Default [Q] S view or Quick Circle Case??

Hi Guys,

I really like the concept of S view or Quick Circle i have seen one or two such cases on the interwebs and wondered, does OPO has the hardware to support such kind of cases?

The idea behind the s view case is that the amoled screen on Samsung devices save power by using less of the screen since an amoled screen only draws as much power as is on the screen. LG use an LCD panel like the OnePlus and have copied the idea with their circle cut out, for what ever reason I don't know, it doesn't save power. The key requirement is a hall sensor, a magnetic switch that tells the phone when the flip cover is closed. The oneplus does not have a hall sensor.

I think i saw a video of the opo where the flip case made the screen to turn on. So i guess it has the hall sensor...

any second thoughts(if the video is true)? Also i understand this might/does not save any power but a cool feature to have.

I have a feeling you might be talking about this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dwRf6pVrM0

I've read on the Opo forum that cases like the above don't work for international Opo. It seems to be designed for the Color OS rom. I'm holding off from getting the Nillkin Sparkle case because I'm not sure if it would work properly.

Wait so that case (and the Nillkin Sparkle) will work with the Global version sold from the OnePlus one store?

It hasn't been confirmed yet but someone on the Opo did say that the Nillkin Sparkle or the two window case isn't good quality .
