The buzz about the Galaxy S 5 unveiling is swirling. Come February 24th, we’ll all get to see the Samsung Galaxy S 5 as Samsung shows it off at Mobile World Congress at their Unpacked 5 event. The world is waiting eagerly to see what Samsung has in store for us in regards to the device, but until we can actually see the phone itself, perhaps seeing some official cases from the company Trident will tide you over. These cases are listed on the UK website called Mobilefun, and they have a tough look about them, as if to say “i’ll protect your device from any sort of damage you could inflict”, and are cases that are part of the Aegis and Kraken series cases. As you can see, there appears to be no opening for the rumored fingerprint scanner that was to make it’s home on the back of the device, but this doesn’t mean that there will be no fingerprint scanner at all. The rumor that Samsung is planning to add it is still very much alive, and if the Galaxy S 5 does indeed have one, it seems that it will end somewhere on the front of the device.
The Aegis Case looks similar to something you might see from Body Glove or Speck, and features a dual layer of protection with a shock absorbing silicone on the inside of the case, and a hardened polycarbonate on the outside. The Aegis case comes with a price tag of $41.99 which isn’t too different from what you see with similar cases that are built for protection, and it comes in your choice of four different colors. You can grab an Aegis case in red, black, blue and green to suit your taste.
The Kraken case looks pretty close to the Aegis, with the same dual layer shock absorbing silicone and polycarbonate combo, except it comes with a kickstand attached to the back so you can prop the phone up to watch videos, play games, and the like. The Kraken is available in the exact same four color options as the Aegis, but comes with a tad bit higher of a Price tag. If you want to snatch one of these cases up it’ll cost you $57.99 out of pocket. Are any of these cases looking good to potential S 5 buyers? The Kraken is certainly not cheap, but I personally always enjoyed a kickstand as they come in extremely handy pretty often.
