The Samsung Galaxy S4 must be one big deal as it has gotten Otterbox’s attention ahead of launch. Folks who want a case from this rugged protection manufacturer won’t have to beg and pray as the company has officially announced it would be bringing out a line of cases for Samsung’s latest. We can expect Defender, Commuter, and Reflex series cases to hit store shelves right around the time the phone is available, and each will be designed with the same two-piece setup we’ve become used to over time:

The Defender Series provides three layers of industry-leading protection to keep the high-end device intact. A sturdy polycarbonate shell, built-in screen protector and tough silicone outer layer combine to provide a secure safeguard. Included is a holster-style swiveling belt clip for carrying or media viewing.

The Commuter Series case for Galaxy S 4 is slim, sleek and stylish. It protects the smartphone with a hard polycarbonate plastic outer shell and a durable inner silicone layer designed to cushion the device during impact and absorb shock. A self-adhering screen protector is included to defend from scuffs and scratches.

The Reflex Series is a lightweight yet sturdy case for the Galaxy S 4. This two-piece sliding design is ideal for docking and affords piece of mind for users concerned with damage from bumps and shock. A self-adhering screen protector prevents the large and vibrant touchscreen from scratching.

Otterbox didn’t have anything to give regarding pricing just yet, but the typical $40-60 range is expected. Heck, we don’t even get a good look at the case quite yet so we’ll be seeking that before we start wondering about how much poorer we’ll be after buying it. Read on for full press details.

    SHOCKER!

  • Bob G

    Screw your Otterbox!!! Where’s the Nexus 4 cases?

    • Anthony McKay

      Not that I’d ever put one on my N4 but ya good point!

    • Brian Menius

      “Nexus 4? Isn’t that a hair product?”

      -Otterbox

      Ergo, why should they? They’re a for-profit corporation that exists… for profit. If the design and tooling costs of a potential product seem to be too much risk for the potential reward, why bother? Maybe they have something in the works, but this long after the phone’s release, and still nothing? I wouldn’t be too hopeful.

      Keep buying the Nexus line, and maybe in a few years, they’ll have the market presence of Samsung’s Galaxy S line, resulting in companies focusing on accessories for the line.

      I think this is a testament to Samsung’s success with the S line, and in particular, the S3. I’m glad to see that there’s an Android handset on the market that gets good support. Look at Rokform, for example. They were exclusively iThings before the S3, but they now have an S3 offering. I’ve always been envious of the volume of high quality accessories the iPhone enjoys, but I don’t lose any sleep over it because I know why it is the way it is.

  • Chris Brown

    well, at least it will cover up the horrible product design and cheap plastic. although, S4 owners will be losing the thin footprint with the gigantor otterbox case.

    • ClayRogers

      Why does every apple fan always say cheap plastic? Is there expensive plastic I don’t know about? Do you think Apple is paying a lot for that tiny bit of metal on their phone? No, I bet it costs about 20 cents. Aluminum is cheap too, that’s why we make cans out of it.

      • Chris Brown

        Uh, I’m not an Apple fan. I had the original iPhone and immediately switched to Android when that contract was up and on my third (soon to be fourth) Android handset.

        Yeah, the S3 feels like cheap plastic. I expect the same of the S4. And the design of the S4 is tepid at best.

  • M.B

    I announce otterbox dead.

    • disqusroadpizza

      I wonder about your reasoning for such a blank statement?

      • M.B

        I wonder about plastic phones needing a plastic cover.

        • Keith

          The phones are becoming more delicate, people want thinner and lighter phones, edge to edge screens so it’s easier to crack the screen. Dropping a cell phone isn’t uncommon, Otter cases are known for good protection. I’m not saying it makes sense..but that’s how it seems to go. Thinner, lighter and delicate phone to put a case on it….

    • Brian Menius

      Please. I’d be surprised if they couldn’t survive on i-products alone. Based on my observations, their products are, hands down, the top choice for iPhone owners. I’ve never had a use for their products, but I understand why people buy them.

  • ClayRogers

    Can’t believe this got posted as news. What did Otterbox give you for it?

  • domatau

    Uttercrap

  • Thaddeus

    Lol they barely have to change the case

  • aaron cooper

    Otterbox can do what they want in respect to the Nexus 4. I bought someone else’s product and couldn’t be happier !

  • eilegz

    as expected, thats a good thing about galaxy line, there are plenty accesories
