LifeProof has just announced its very first case for Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of devices, and this particular case is made for the all-new Galaxy Note 9. The name of the company’s case is LifeProof NËXT, and the case itself is not available just yet, but it will be soon, says the company. LifeProof also said that the case is made to ‘stand up to the rigors of an active lifestyle’.
LifeProof has been making cases for Samsung’s Galaxy devices for years now, but never for a single Galaxy Note device. The LifeProof NËXT case for the Galaxy Note 9 offers six layers of protection, says the company, and the case is quite slim. This case has a two-piece outer shell, and it will protect the Galaxy Note 9 from drops and snow, while the inner lining seals the case from dirt. Audio-transparent mesh covers on this case keep the speakers free of debris, says the company, and LifeProof also claims that the NËXT case will protect the Galaxy Note 9 from drops up to 6.6 feet (2 meters), while the case itself is IP-5X-certified for blocking dirt and dust, and also keeping the snow out.
LifeProof’s cases are quite interesting, as we’ve seen similar cases for some other Galaxy smartphones, and if you’re worried about snow, water, dust, or dropping your phone, getting this case may be a solution for you. The LifeProof NËXT case for the Galaxy Note 9 will cost $79.99 once it becomes available, and it will arrive in two color options, Black and Cactus Rose, the company announced. LifeProof did not give us a prediction as to when this case will become available, but the company did say that it’s ‘coming soon’, so it will hopefully become available in the US in the coming weeks.
