Seidio, a leading manufacturer of premium mobile technology accessories, has begun shipping the highly anticipated OBEX case for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Designed as the ultimate protection against drops and external elements like water snow, mud, dust and sand, the OBEX (Latin for “Barrier”) ensures the safety of your device.
“We’ve [Seidio] spent months carefully designing the OBEX, and putting it through a serious of rigorous tests,” says David Chang, CEO of Seidio. “Combining the finest materials, advanced protection technology, and a meticulous design- we are confident that the OBEX will completely safeguard the Galaxy S III anytime, anywhere.”
Seidio’s newest case exceeds the IP68 rating which means it is both dust-tight and protected against complete, continuous submersion for 30 minutes in 2 meters deep water. Waterproof membranes guarantees external matter will not be able to penetrate the phone’s speakers or microphone without losing sound quality. Meanwhile, the built-in screen protector promotes touch sensitivity and clarity, and anti-reflection glass protects the camera lens without interfering with photo quality.
It’s happened to all smartphone owners at some point: that dreaded moment when the device falls to the ground. The OBEX guarantees the safety of the Galaxy S III against most drops. It has far exceeded the military requirements set forth by the MIL-STD-810G test which evaluates the case from 6-foot drops at multiple angles. This is due to the unique combination of Polycarbonate and Thermoplastic Polyurethane materials used to build the case.
Galaxy S III owners do not need to trade functionality for protection. With the OBEX, users can enjoy the high level of protection while enjoying a fully functional phone. The case will not interfere with radio signals, Bluetooth, or NFC (near field communication). Also, the rubber silicone stoppers used to keep dust and water out of important ports are easily removable.
The OBEX retails for $79.95. It is available at www.seidio.com/obex.
Seidio will also release the OBEX Combo for $89.95 in the coming weeks.
