Samsung Galaxy S3 owners getting quite playful with the smartphone and its smooth exterior have the all new Ballistic Shell Gel Maxx sheath to consider. It is the revved up version of the Shell Gel case and boasts of a molded screen protector.
Considering that a lot of cases feature film-based screen protectors, this accessory is touted to be the first of its kind to accommodate a molded screen guard. What’s more, it claims to offer enough protection to the phone owing to its sturdy form factor. In spite of this inclusion, the sheath’s exterior should come across as compact and durable.
The accessory has been specifically designed to render proper protection while sticking to a durable and compact build. The molded screen protector incorporated into it does the trick in terms of the touch display. Besides, the case has a lay-on-table feature to prevent the smartphone from touching the table surface when the device is placed face down.
The cover’s outermost layer is composed of soft rubber (TPU) for shock resistance, while the second layer sticks to impact-proof polycarbonate. The third and last sheet is made of a softer form of TPU. The complete body is encapsulated within rugged edges for drop protection, along with built-in port covers and a horizontal holster.
A very similar Ballistic edition is expected to be made available for the iPhone 4 and 4S in summer this year. It can be picked for the third generation Galaxy device in color combinations of black/black, charcoal/white, white/pink and black/white as well as cobalt.
The Ballistic Shell Gel Maxx case for Samsung Galaxy S3 price is marked at $49.99. It is up for grabs via the official site, while the charcoal/white variant can be purchased from AT&T stores in the US.
