FORT COLLINS -- OtterBox announced the release of protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

To help keep Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ safe, OtterBox said it is offering a full case lineup including rugged Defender Series, stylish Symmetry Series, slim Commuter Series, finely crafted Strada Series and tempered Alpha Glass screen guards for reliable protection on any adventure.otter-inside

To ensure cases withstand the wear and tear on an excursion, each design has OtterBox Certified Drop+ Protection. To earn that designation, each design had more than 238 hours of testing across 24 or more tests to ensure durable, long-lasting performance that goes beyond drop, the company said.

"We work hard so that you can play hard," said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke. "OtterBox cases let Samsung fans go adventuring and stay connected.

“As members of the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program, we have 'Made for Samsung' protection for the cutting-edge Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on Day One of device availability."

OtterBox said its Symmetry Series cases feature metallic finishes, bright colors, graphics and clear options. The dual-material design protects against shock, and a raised, beveled edge provides a buffer for the touchscreen on drops.

OtterBox’s Commuter Series keeps Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ covered with two layers of slim protection. The thin case slips easily in and out of pockets for on-the-go use, helps guard against bumps with a tough exterior shell and blocks out grime with the shock-absorbing slipcover's port protection, the company said.

OtterBox’s Strada Series Folio cases feature a brilliant edged display with a genuine leather folio that protects the touchscreen from harm. The elegant design covers the device in classic, sophisticated style with a discrete wallet slot for cards or cash, the company said.OtterBox_logoUSE

OtterBox said its rugged Defender Series guards Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from tough drops and harsh scrapes. The tough case was redesigned with an open screen to suit the curved display and is fully compatible with Alpha Glass. The Defender Series has a shell with a rigid exterior and flexible interior for drop protection, and a tough, textured outer layer provides additional shock protection and blocks out dust, dirt and grime.

The new phones’ expansive displays are defended from harm with Alpha Glass screen protection, the company said. The fortified, anti-shatter glass defends the display while reactive technology retains touchscreen sensitivity and is compatible with all OtterBox cases for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

OtterBox said the Defender Series, Commuter Series and Symmetry Series are available now, while Strada Series Folio and Alpha Glass are coming soon.
