OtterBox Introduces More Choices for Samsung GALAXY S4 Cases

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With more choices than ever before, OtterBox® -- the brand that is the No. 1-selling case for smartphones in the U.S.* -- now offers an impressive array of protective cases for the Samsung GALAXY S4. As part of SMAPP, Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program, OtterBox is recognized as a highly qualified industry expert and approved partner with instrumental influence to enhance Samsung Mobile's accessory portfolio with premium protection.

“The entire family of Samsung GALAXY S4 cases from OtterBox are certified to meet Samsung’s high performance standards,” OtterBox President and CEO Brian Thomas said. “It is extremely important that we deliver protective solutions that provide value and complete satisfaction for our partners and consumers.”

Defender Series®: The OtterBox flagship case line was designed with precision for the Samsung GALAXY S4 and delivers rugged, multi-layered protection. The impact-absorbing outer layer, solid polycarbonate shell, built-in screen protector and included swivel-style belt clip holster combine to provide a custom fit with protection from drops, bumps, shock and impact. Its rugged, angular appearance and curved shape provide an ergonomic grip for the GALAXY S4 user. The bevel around the speaker opening is raised slightly to let sound out when lying on a surface and an enhanced support structure was incorporated to ensure a sturdy and reliable skeleton. Twelve color options will soon be available, including two iconic Realtree camouflage patterns. Black is available now from otterbox.com.**

Commuter Series®: The Commuter Series is made for an always-on lifestyle. Designed with smooth round lines that give the case for the GALAXY S4 a curvy, “waistline” appearance, this stylish, sturdy design withstands bumps and shock and slides easily in and out of pockets for quick and convenient access. The Commuter Series fits flawlessly over the GALAXY S4, preserving the device’s sleek design elements, while the innovative styling provides more grip surface. Installation is easy with the dual–layer case. The inner silicone slipcover slides on to absorb shock while the sturdy polycarbonate outer shell is structured to offer a rigid safeguard against bumps and impact. A self-adhering screen protector is included. The bevel around the speaker opening is also slightly raised on the Commuter Series to allow sound out when lying on a surface. Four color options are coming soon and black is available now from otterbox.com.***

Reflex Series®: Lifestyle and protection come together in this highly protective case. Pairing innovative styling with proven damage defense, this series is lightweight, easy to dock and portable, providing a secure feeling of protection for the GALAXY S4 that follows design cues from the device. Soft, impact-absorbing material surrounds the case edges and is molded into a hard polycarbonate shell and paired with a self-adhering screen protector. The device is suspended within the case, allowing the case to flex and absorb shock. Two color options are coming to otterbox.com soon.***

Clearly Protected™: This is an entirely new and refreshingly innovative line of screen protectors. Available in a variety of options that maintain ultimate touch sensitivity and help keep the Samsung GALAXY S4 like new, the following options are now available from otterbox.com:
