This is ridiculously cool. Remember the Sonim Bolt that we reviewed last week? The only phone certified for various hazardous environments by being dust-, water-, pressure-, drop-, oil-, and everything-proof? OtterBox is bringing that to the iPhone 4/4S.
Later next month, the company renowned for its protective smartphone cases, is introducing an Armor case for the iPhone 4 and 4S. While not a whole lot is known about the product at this time, it boasts a “waterproof, thermo-plastic shell, precision fit to 1/3000th of an inch in accuracy, and [is] locked down behind a medical-grade stainless steel latch.”
Previously OtterBox has released the Defender series of cases for many smartphones, but the Armor series looks to be significantly thinner and more versatile; less a box and more a day-to-day shell.
We’ll be sure to bring you all the extreme testing a case like this deserves when we get a review unit. It goes on sale on June 24th, and we’ve reached out to the company to see if they’ll be bringing the Armor case to any other devices, including the Galaxy S III.
