While previous Galaxy models have had curved edges the tighter radius, infinity screen edges, and far smaller bezels all around presented design challenges – how to protect yet expose the edges.
Both cases have earned the “Designed for Samsung” logo that indicates that they have been designed specifically for Samsung mobile devices and have been certified to meet Samsung performance standards.
Bonnie Soon, LifeProof general manager for APAC, said, “With LifeProof, you can take your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ beyond limits and bring back the proof.
LifeProof has four-proof — waterproof, dirtproof, snowproof, and droproof — protection for smartphone and tablet devices and provides freedom from environmental constraints. Consequently, it is the No. 1-selling waterproof case in the US.
The S8/S8 Plus case adds 35.8/41.7g and extends Samsung’s IP68 rating to two metres underwater for an hour and a two-metre drop resistance to Mil. Std. 810G-516.6. It has achieved this by building around the screen edge.
FRĒ for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is available now from lifeproof.com and select stores. Pricing is $99.95 for Galaxy S8 and $129.95 for Galaxy S8+. Colours include Twilight’s Edge Purple, Second Wind Grey, and Asphalt Black.
