Speck’s Iconic CandyShell Grip Case Now Available for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P Speck Named Key Partner for New Nexus smartphones

Speck's Iconic CandyShell Grip Case Now Available for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P

San Mateo, Calif. (September 29, 2015) - Speck, the creator of award-winning cases for smartphones, tablets, and laptops today announced their partnership with Google in producing the military-grade protective CandyShell Grip case for Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the latest Nexus smartphones featuring Android 6.0 Marshmallow. CandyShell Grip is one of Speck’s most popular and best-selling cases, and it balances both protection and style so consumers never have to compromise on either.

The outside of CandyShell Grip is covered in a series of raised rubber ridges to give consumers a no-slip grip on the new Nexus smartphones. A patented dual-layer design combines a hard exterior to disperse impact with a soft, rubbery interior to absorb shock. This unique construction allows CandyShell Grip to pack military-grade protection into an unobtrusive, slim case that perfectly complements the new Nexus devices.

To provide extra protection for the larger 5.7” screen on Nexus 6P and the 5.2” screen on Nexus 5X, CandyShell Grip has a raised bezel that shields the glass from impact and allows you to lay your phone on its face without sliding.

CandyShell Grip incorporates Speck’s Seven Signs of Protection without Compromise:

  • Military-grade protection
  • Patented one-piece, multi-layer design
  • Patented raised bezel screen protection
  • Precision-engineered slim fit
  • Perimeter port and camera protection
  • Lab-tested durability
  • Responsive button protection

CandyShell Grip will be coming soon for both Nexus 5X ($34.99) and Nexus 6P ($39.99). Sign up to be notified when these cases are available at
