FORT COLLINS, Colo., March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OtterBox is taking tough to the next level by making its flagship Defender Series even more protective. Defender Series is unapologetically rugged for the bucket list chaser, the weekend warrior, soccer moms and dads and anyone else who doesn't have time to worry about smartphone drops, dings and scrapes. Available now for Samsung GALAXY S7, the new Defender Series raises the bar in rugged, uncompromising smartphone protection.
Defender Series, now with four rugged layers, stands tough against smartphone-destroying hazards. OtterBox engineers enhanced the design by adding a new patent-pending, impact-absorbing reactive foam buffer between the device display and case lid without adding bulk. With its built-in screen protector, tough interior shell and shock-absorbing rubber slipcover, the Defender Series is now more protective than ever.
"OtterBox created the smartphone protection category with the Defender Series," said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke. "Built on that rock-solid design, OtterBox is now the No. 1-most trusted smartphone case brand. Thousands of hours went into developing and testing enhancements to create the most protective Defender Series ever."1
Just how tough is Defender Series-tough? This level of protection is proven through the OtterBox Certified Drop+ Protection program, where Defender Series is put through 31 punishing tests over the course of at least 238 hours.
To celebrate more than a decade of smartphone defense, OtterBox is teaming up with ESPN's SportsCenter to highlight the best in sports defense. Tune in at 6 p.m. EDT on March 15 to see the first-ever OtterBox Top Defensive Play feature. The series will continue with weekly highlights of the Top Defensive Play, celebrating the toughness of today's top athletes.
