FORT COLLINS, Colo., July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsung innovated the first curved display, challenging OtterBox engineers to evolve the most rugged case line to suit these new devices. Following more than a year of design and development, and a new process for creating curved screen guards, OtterBox introduces Defender Series for GALAXY S7 edge, available now.
Defender Series is the most rugged OtterBox case with multiple layers of tough protection to keep GALAXY S7 edge protected against dirt, dust, scratches and drops.1 With a newly engineered curved screen guard, tough interior shell and shock-absorbing slipcover, the Defender Series protects GALAXY S7 edge with rugged protection without interfering with screen functionality.
"The curved edge of the phone gave OtterBox engineers a new challenge with the Defender Series design," said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke. "With such a huge demand for the rugged case, we had to create a solution that allows full functionality of the display without compromising on the protection Defender Series is known for."
While most Defender Series have a flat built-in screen guard to block out scratches and dust, Defender Series for GALAXY S7 edge uses a molded screen guard to provide a clear screen cover solution. The built-in screen guard is made from injected molded polycarbonate and features anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint and UV stabilized coatings.
To ensure Defender Series can take on the rough tumbles of everyday life and weekend adventures, the case design undergoes a minimum of 238 hours across 24 or more punishing tests as part of the OtterBox Certified Drop+ Protection program.
Defender Series for GALAXY S7 edge is available to pre-order today in black for $69.95 from otterbox.com. Alpha Glass for GALAXY S7 edge is also available now and is compatible with Symmetry Series, Strada Series and Commuter Series.2 To learn more visit otterbox.com.
