Back when news of the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL was leaking in late summer reports of the phone coming in a Windows Blue color were circulating. We quickly squashed those rumors noting the blue color was only for the prototype, and instead the phone would be offered only in black or white. That came to be the case although third party manufacturers can indeed fill the gaps.
Now, a seller on AliExpress is offering replacement battery covers for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and besides black or white you can also grab them in bright orange or that Windows blue color.
The cases themselves are super cheap at about $3 a piece. However, it should be noted that as far as we can tell they do not contain the Qi wireless or NFC components. Instead, they are just plastic covers and for all we know cheap knock-offs. Still, you could solder in your Qi pad even removing the one from your existing case if you are brave.
Shipping is also very cheap although since it is coming from China, you are looking at about a 2-week timespan. Expedited shipping goes past $100, which is just ludicrous for a $3 item. You are also limited to just two covers per order.
Needless to say, we have ordered up some covers for our Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and will, of course, do a hands-on when they arrive. For now, if you want to take the gamble you can head to the store links below to order them up.
