have you heard? Samsung will be unleashing a ruggedized S 4 (dubbed ‘Active’), but until then, you just have to content with the regular S 4, or the plain vanilla S 4 slated for June release, if TouchWiz isn’t your cuppa. regardless, if ultimate protection is on the top of your must-do list for the S 4, you might want to give SEIDIO OBEX Waterproof Case for Samsung GALAXY S 4 a thought. like its iPhone 5 model, this OBEX for S4 is IP68 rated which means it can take a dive into 2 meters of water and stays submerged for up to 30 minutes, and it is of course, sealed against dust too. crafted of polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane, the case is also put through rigorously military standard MIL-STD-810F testing where it was subjected to 6-foot drops at multiple angles and surviving it.
while the case offers your S 4 the ultimate in protection, it still gives you full access to the ports, preserve the touchscreen sensitivity, and its special waterproof membranes keeps dirt and water at bay while ensuring the speaker and microphone quality does not suffer. additionally, an anti-reflection glass keeps your camera lens safe without interfering with the handset’s awesome imaging capabilities. in fact, SEIDIO is so confident that the firm dares you to drop your device while protected with the OBEX. the SEIDIO OBEX Waterproof Case for Samsung GALAXY S 4 is currently under development and is expected to be available sometime in third quarter for $79.95 each. until then, it will be the waiting game, or if you happen to be in and around Las Vegas at this time, you can take sneak of the case at SEIDIO Booth at the CTIA 2013 (May 21-23, 2013), happening at Sands Expo and Convention Center.
