With the new HTC One M8 having had its official announcement earlier, it seems the flood gates have opened and we’ll probably begin to see plenty of accessories and cases get unveiled today. We’ve seen the Dot View cases show up on HTC’s online retail store for $49.99, and now Tech21, a company that specializes in cases that provide good protection to your device from drops and damage, has just unveiled that they have two cases and a screen guard available for purchase for the new HTC flagship smartphone. For those that have never used a Tech21 case before, they provide a pretty good amount of protection from drops as all of them are shock resistant, but not all of the Tech 21 cases are equal. With that said, expect these new Tech21 cases for the new One M8 to protect the phone just fine, especially if you pair it with a screen guard.(personally, I’m over the screen guards myself)
If you’re someone that prefers to have as much protection as possible but hate to bulk up your device with a few extra layers of thick composite, you should definitely give these new Tech21 cases a look. These new cases for the M8 are the Impact Tactical and the Impact Shell case, and just like all Tech21 cases, they’re made with the special D30 material inside of them which is what gives the cases that added layer of protection. Whether you’re someone that prefers to have a more standard looking case or you like the choice of having color options for that little bit of flare but without skimping on the protection, the Impact Shell or the Impact Tactical will work to keep your tech protected. The way the D30 stuff works is that the D30 molecules interlock with each other and push absorbed force away from your device, keeping your phone as protected as possible.
That sounds all well and good but what if you’re someone that’s worried about the beauty and integrity of your brand new display? That’s where the Tech21 Impact Shield can come in handy. It’s a transparent self-healing screen protector shield that can keep your screen from receiving any sort of nasty scratches or scuffs. So if you drop your phone, or place it in the same pockets as keys or change or other abrasive things, the Impact Shield will keep your screen looking nice and new. All three products will cost you $34.99 each, although right now it looks like only the Impact Shell and Impact Tactical cases show up on the site for the M8.
