A number of companies already announced their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus cases, and it’s time for LifeProof to do the same. The company has just introduced their ‘FRÈ’ cases for Samsung’s all new flagship smartphones. For those of you who don’t know, LifeProof’s cases are usually quite pricey, you could say that they belong in the high-end case manufacturers. In any case, if you’re interested, read on.
Now, the FRÈ line of cases is actually LifeProof’s most rugged line of cases. The FRÈ cases are expected to protect your phone to the max from drops and similar accidents, and at the same time, they don’t feel that bulky. LifeProof’s FRÈ cases will protect your phone thanks to the Military Standard 810G-516.6 armor which should withstand any drops, bumps, and so on. These cases will also protect your display, as they come with an almost invisible front layer that is scratch resistant, and that’s a really nice touch by FRÈ, especially if you’re looking for some extra protection for your all-new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone. LifeProof FRÈ cases will completely seal your smartphone, but you will still have access to a Type-C USB port on the bottom, while same can be said for the headphone jack and a speaker grill. On top of all that, LifeProof’s FRÈ cases come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. So, not only are the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus IP68 certified, but so are LifeProof’s FRÈ cases, so if you’re panicky about submerging the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus underwater, well, this should put your mind at ease.
Now, the Galaxy S8 LifeProof FRÈ case weighs 35.8 grams, while the one for the Galaxy S8 Plus comes in at 41.7 grams. These new cases will be available in four color variants, all of which you can check out in the gallery down below, and the cases are priced at $89.99. So, as you can see, they are quite pricey, as we’ve mentioned earlier, but if you’re looking for a really solid protection for the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8 Plus, LifeProof’s new cases might be the way to go. Do keep in mind that these cases are still not available for purchase, but we’re guessing that they will be soon, though LifeProof might wait until the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus become available on April 21st.
