LG G5 fans should have one more thing to be happy about. Aside from being able to get their hands on one of the latest and coolest gadgets in town soon, they will also be able to protect the sleek gadget weeks before the device itself is shipped! Seller of waterproof cases LifeProof has unveiled a new case customized for the LG G5 called the LifeProof FRĒ case.
The new cases are made as part of the “Made for LG” program by the company. According to Transworld Business, the FRĒ case, which was developed in collaboration with LG, is designed with “award-wining four-proof protection.” This feature means that the device is well protected against water, dirt, snow and impact. Every detail was considered when it was still in the crafting stage.
LifeProof CEO Jim Parke said that the LifeProof cases are highly engineered to provide complete confidence when faced with the elements, and that level of design can take some time. Parke also reveals that by participating in the “Made for LG program,” the case manufacturer company can have a fully waterproof case out on the market even before the new LG G5 releases.
The new LG phone will be featuring a sleek metal body with a modular type design, a slide-out battery and a rear fingerprint scanner. It is also known to sport a dual rear shooter that has the widest available angle lens in any currently known smartphones, which is a 135-degree wide-angle lens.
With the waterproof LG G5 case, PR Newswire reports that the LG G5 device is guarded well from frigid water, coarse sand, sticky mud and hard hits. The case made specifically for G5 is created to keep the said mobile phone safe up to 6.6 feet deep in water for an hour. It is also able to meet the military standards set for shock and impact protection for up to 6.6 feet fall.
Additionally, the LifeProof FRĒ case can also block out scratches with its built-in screen protector to keep the 3D Arc Glass that makes up the device’s “5.3-inch, Always on™ Display vibrant.” The case also has an anti-reflective optical-glass lens cover and a Sound Enhancement System.
The new LG G5 is currently up for pre-orders now. Official sales will open by April and is scheduled to start shipping by April 8. Meanwhile, the LifeProof FRĒ case for LG G5 is now available for $79.99 USD.
