Anyone come across replacement rear covers yet?

I'm looking to buy the 5" version but can only find black ones that will ship to me, so I was considering buying black and changing the rear cover to white if I can buy that by itself.

Same here.
I bought ZE550ML 1,8Ghz in black color because it was the last one but i wanted everything except black at start.
So if i could buy a new back to change my black one to silver or white , it would be really nice.
I dont find anything on internet for now (maybe/probably too soon), so if someone find that, thanks to share :)

looks good be sure and give a review when you get it.
I got them. They are meh. Look better on the picture than what they really are. Aluminum bumper with a plastic/acrylic sliding back. Adds tons of bulk to the phone. Doesn't seem very durable if it falls, at least the plastic/acrylic panel.

Let's talk only about rear cover replacement here, so others can find what they want.
The link for case above is not a rear cover, so must go to cases topic.
Rear cover replacement is exactly the same as original coming with phone. It can have different material, texture, etc, but main idea should be kept.

So far, i couldn't find custom back covers for ZF2 yet.

You can always change back cover

I cant check your link from france... telling me its censored in some country etc

But im ok with sorg, i want the same rear cover than the original one, just a colour change.
I dont want a new case, or new cover totally different from the original one :)

Those are back covers, but with flips (similar to original flip). I couldn't fins only back covers yet. Especially some special covers with textures or leather finish. For my Samsung Galaxy S4 i saw a lot of different covers (although the best one is original black edition cover). I hope ZF2 will get more attention from accessories manufacturers.

The most important - it will be very ugly. Since ZF2 has arc surface on the back, any attempt to make a flat case will make this phone very bulky and ugly.

The second one that I order is more polished and round edges. Still bulky but way less.

I've been hunting around for replacement battery covers for the Zenfone 2 and can't find anything. Asus have shouted loudly about the interchangeable coloured backplate but I can't find any for sale anywhere.
Has anyone had any luck finding any? I don't mean clip-on cases, but backplates that replace your current battery plate.

Hi
I think I've found a site that sells spare parts for asus that has what u want:
http://www.asusparts.eu/partfinder/Asus/Mobile/ZenFone/ZenFone 2 ZE551ML#Cover

The back cover contain the NFC module so it's probably one of these:
Under "Cover" section you'll find items like:
ZE551ML-6J BATT-COVER ASSY WITH NFC ANTENNA/CN

After "ZE551ML-" comes the color-code there are 6A,6B.6C.6G and 6J. (there are 5 available colors so...)

I sent them an email regarding this and they've answered that they are not sure which color goes with which code.

Hope this helps

I haven't been able to find any either...so I'm guessing no one is really making them yet. Hopefully they US launch will expand the market enough that someone decides they're worth producing.

I don't think they care, probably they deal in bulk for repair labs. Such customers would buy all colors anyway...
Anyhow you're more then welcome to send them an email and try getting a better answer. As I'm not intending to buy a cover now, I don't want to push for an answer. I feel I'll be waisting the seller's time on a non sale...
