FORT COLLINS -- After more than a year of design and development, OtterBox  announced it is introducing a Defender Series case for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.

Defender Series  is the toughest OtterBox case with multiple layers of protection to keep Galaxy S7 edge protected against dirt, dust, scratches and drops. With a newly engineered curved screen guard, tough interior shell and shock-absorbing slipcover, OtterBox said the Defender Series protects Galaxy S7 edge with rugged protection without interfering with screen functionality.

"The curved edge of the phone gave OtterBox engineers a new challenge with the Defender Series design," said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke.

"With such a huge demand for the rugged case, we had to create a solution that allows full functionality of the display without compromising on the protection Defender Series is known for."

While most Defender Series have a flat built-in screen guard to block out scratches and dust, OtterBox said the Defender Series for Galaxy S7 edge uses a molded screen guard to provide a clear screen cover solution.

The built-in screen guard is made from injected molded polycarbonate and features anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint and UV stabilized coatings.

Defender Series for Galaxy S7 edge is available to pre-order in black for $69.95 from otterbox.com. Alpha Glass for Galaxy S7 edge is also available now and is compatible with Otterbox’s Symmetry Series, Strada Series and Commuter Series.
