HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seidio, a leading manufacturer of professional mobile accessories, unveils the OBEX for Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s a custom-made waterproof and drop-proof case for the S4, and the ultimate defense against the elements. OBEX (Latin for “Barrier”) earned its name after a series of rigorous tests proving that water, dirt, dust and drops are no match for this protective case. You can catch the first glimpse of the OBEX for Galaxy S4 at Showstoppers at CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas this Monday, May 20th.
“Our consumers live adventurously, and they need a case that can handle the toughest environments and climates. We [Seidio] strive to stay on the forefront of the waterproof accessory market,” says David Chang, CEO of Seidio. “Our OBEX line has received rave reviews and is a nominee for an American Business Award so we wanted to expand this case for the S4. This version, however, has been revamped and redesigned to be even slimmer, easier to install and remove, and maintains the great sound quality of the device’s speakers and microphone.”
The OBEX is a must-have item for the adventurers, outdoorsmen, travelers, and vacationers. Seidio’s world-class engineering team put the case through dozens of torture tests to guarantee that no water can break through OBEX design. It exceeds the IP68 rating which means that it’s been submerged underwater for 30 minutes without causing any damage to the device.
One of the biggest issues consumers face when purchasing a rugged, extreme protection accessory is interference with important ports, touch screen sensitivity, sound quality and more. The OBEX preserves the functionality of the Galaxy S4 due to its high-quality materials and top-notch design. Waterproof membranes will keep dirt and water out while ensuring the speaker and microphone quality remains the same. Additionally, a built-in screen protector preserves touch screen sensitivity, and anti-reflection glass protects the camera lens and photo quality.
We dare you to drop your device while guarded with the OBEX. Really. The Polycarbonate and Thermoplastic Polyurethane impact-proof case is military-tested under the MIL-STD-810F test which evaluates the case from 6-foot drops at multiple angles. If it can survive this test, it can definitely survive your everyday bump, fumbles and drops.
The OBEX for Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in Q3 for $79.95 ($89.95 Combo) at www.seidioonline.com.
The OBEX is also available for the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.
Seidio will be at Showstoppers at Monday, May 20, 2013. The company will also showcase their line of accessories at CTIA 2013 (Booth #470).
