The official screen protector can be found in the Pine64 store under PinePhone Tempered Glass Screen Protector.
Most screen protectors for the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone XS Max fit the PinePhone (if the top notch is not obscured by a black foil or similar).
The Pine store got official cases:
- PinePhone Hard Protective Case
- PinePhone Soft TPU Protective Case - "Reduce Digital Gap" Donation Program
Tight-fit cases of other phones can't be alienated for the PinePhone due as most times the proportions and/or camera notch won't fit. The phone can however also be used with "phone sleeves", such as those from fitBAG. The sleeve from fitBAG for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is fitting the PinePhone very tightly.
