The Samsung Galaxy S4 arrives in a matter of days, and we are already seeing a number fo Samsung Galaxy S4 cases arrive on the market.
A collection of Speck Galaxy S4 cases, which mirror the company’s iPhone 5 line, are set for release in the coming days, and we were fortunate enough to go hands on with the Speck CandyShell Galaxy S4 cases ahead of launch.
Speck is a well-known case manufacturer for the iPhone and iPad, and in 2013 we are seeing the company branch out to deliver cases for the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.
Speck plans to offer four Samsung Galaxy S4 cases in a variety of colors. The Speck CandyShell cases we have in for review snap around the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a soft inner and a hard plastic outer layer, providing protection and colorful looks.
Speck Samsung Galaxy S4 Cases Hands On Video
We don’t have a Samsung Galaxy in to do a full review of these Samsung Galaxy S4 cases, but we are able to offer a closer look at these Speck Galaxy S4 cases and show what they look like with at least part of the Samsung Galaxy S4 inside.
The Speck Galaxy S4 cases are made of premium material that adds protection to the corners and the edges of the Galaxy S4 without adding too much bulk. The photo below shows the Galaxy S4 CandyShell Case next to the official Samsung Galaxy S4 Flip Cover to illustrate the size difference. The Flip Cover snaps onto the back of the Galaxy S4.
Spec includes openings for the variety of sensors, ports and microphones, which leads to a number of openings on the top, bottom and back of the case. All of these line up with the corresponding openings on the Galaxy S4 back we have in hand. Speck accents the openings with a brighter color, pink on the orange case and grey on the black case.
Overall the Speck CandyShell Galaxy S4 case is well made and looks to be a popular Galaxy S4 accessory. We can’t wait to get a closer look at the SmartFlex Galaxy S4 cases which add features like a kick stand and a wallet to the mix.
In addition to the Speck CandyShell Galaxy S4 case, Speck offers a full collection of cases. These include popular models like the CandyShell Grip which looks similar to the cases we have in, but with molded lines for better grip while texting or gaming. Speck is also bringing two SmartFlex Galaxy S4 cases to market.
The SmartFlex View is a Samsung Galaxy S4 wallet case that can hold three cards or some cash and comes in three color options. The SmartFlex View is a Galaxy S4 case with a kickstand that works in landscape and portrait mode and comes in two colors.
Speck has not announced the Galaxy S4 case prices or availability, but we expect to hear about online sales in the coming weeks and AT&T typically sells Speck items in store, so there may be some available on April 27th when the Galaxy S4 arrives in stores.
