San Mateo, CA (March 29, 2017) - Speck today announced its selection of Presidio cases available to protect Samsung’s newest flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. This line of stylish, protective Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ cases includes Presidio, Presidio GRIP, Presidio CLEAR, Presidio CLEAR + GLITTER, and Presidio CLEAR + PRINT. These are available today in a range of vibrant, modern colors and prints, and each case exceeds military-grade protection and offers drop protection up to 10 feet.

Samsung’s new Galaxy phones are the company’s most innovative and bold yet, with extra-large upgraded screens and curved edges. Speck’s best-selling cases, Presidio GRIP and Presidio CLEAR, are ready to protect these new cutting-edge devices. Presidio GRIP’s raised rubber ridges offer a secure hold while watching videos, taking photos or gaming on the new large, curved screens, while the Presidio CLEAR options let the device shine through with brilliant clarity.

Speck’s Presidio line is made with IMPACTIUM™, a dynamic material that absorbs and disperses shock on impact. Presidio and Presidio GRIP feature the IMPACTIUM Shock Barrier, a band of ridges that lines the inside perimeter of the case, co-molded with the polycarbonate shell. When dropped, the ridges compress on impact to absorb and disperse shock. Presidio and Presidio GRIP offer 10-foot drop protection, and Presidio CLEAR, Presidio CLEAR + GLITTER, and Presidio CLEAR + PRINT offer 8-foot drop protection.

Speck’s Presidio cases are also slimmer than ever, offering the perfect balance of protection and style in one sleek package:

  • Presidio ($39.95-$44.95) - Superior slim protection with IMPACTIUM Shock Barrier
  • Presidio GRIP ($39.95-$44.95) – Raised ridges provides a no-slip grip no matter how you hold the phone
  • Presidio CLEAR ($39.95-$44.95) - #1 next-generation of the best-selling clear case* in the US
  • Presidio CLEAR + GLITTER ($44.95-$49.95) – Glitter crystals dazzles and won’t flake off
  • Presidio CLEAR + PRINT ($44.95-$49.95) – Eye-catching embedded designs won’t fade or scratch

ShieldView Glass, Speck’s tempered glass screen protector, is also available for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. Engineered to perfectly fit these new devices, ShieldView Glass features a custom design that matches the phones’ curved screen for precise edge-to-edge protection. ShieldView Glass provides superior protection against damage without interfering with the screen’s sensitivity. A glossy finish resists fingerprints, dirt and smudges, keeping the screen looking clear. Paired with a Speck Presidio case, ShieldView Glass provides all-around protection.

All of Speck’s cases for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are available today on speckproducts.com and at Speck’s UK, France, Germany, and European sites. Presidio cases will also be available at Best Buy, Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint stores. ShieldView Glass will be available for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ on speckproducts.com in the next few weeks.
