The Most Protective Defender Series Ever

OtterBox introduces the Most Protective Defender Series Ever and Delivers
Top Protection for GALAXY S7, GALAXY S7 edge

4th April, 2016, New Zealand – To protect the defined lines and unforgettable profile of the Samsung GALAXY S7 and GALAXY S7 edge, OtterBox offers a full portfolio of premium cases, available for sale today. OtterBox is also taking tough to the next level by making its flagship Defender Series even more protective, launching for the GALAXY S7.

The Defender Series is unapologetically rugged for the bucket list chaser, the weekend warrior, adventure seeker and anyone else who doesn't have time to worry about smartphone drops, dings and scrapes. Available now for the GALAXY S7, the new Defender Series raises the bar in rugged, uncompromising smartphone protection.

Now with four rugged layers the OtterBox engineers have enhanced the design of the Defender Series by adding a new patent-pending, impact-absorbing reactive foam buffer between the device display and case lid without adding bulk. With its built-in screen protector, tough interior shell and shock-absorbing rubber slipcover, the Defender Series is now more protective than ever.

In addition to the new Defender series, the GALAXY S7 lineup is highlighted with the stylish Symmetry Series, slim Commuter Series, finely crafted Strada Series and crystal-clear Alpha Glass screen guards for reliable protection for any lifestyle.2 Guard GALAXY S7 edge with the Symmetry Series and Commuter Series.

Every OtterBox case is put through more than 238 hours of testing across 24 or more tests in the OtterBox Certified Drop+ Protection program to ensure it delivers the quality that makes OtterBox the gold standard in protection and the No. 1-most trusted smartphone case brand.

“Through the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program, OtterBox is able to provide its signature protective phone cases to Australian consumers from the moment the GALAXY S7 and GALAXY S7 edge are in shops,” said Bonnie Soon, general manager of OtterBox Asia Pacific. “This range of OtterBox cases is custom-designed to fit the curved edges and glass rear of the Samsung GALAXY S7 and GALAXY S7 edge, making it the perfect match for your new pocket companion.”

The entire line of GALAXY S7 edge and GALAXY S7 cases are designed to provide durable, long-lasting performance that goes beyond drop. OtterBox’s unparalleled commitment to quality throughout the design and testing process results in award-winning cases that help get the most out of any smartphone.

The Commuter Series covers GALAXY S7 and GALAXY S7 edge with two layers of sleek protection. The slim GALAXY S7 case slips easily in and out of pockets for on-the-go use, helps guard against bumps and shock with a tough exterior shell and blocks out pocket lint with a shock-absorbing slipcover.

Style and protection collide with sleek Symmetry Series GALAXY S7 and GALAXY S7 edge cases. The stylish cases stand out from the crowd with bright colors and graphics and a tough dual-material construction, helping protect against bumps. A raised, beveled edge provides a buffer for the touchscreen on drops.

The Strada Series wraps the GALAXY S7 in a slim protective shell with a genuine leather folio that protects the touchscreen from harm when closed. The elegant design covers the device in classic, sophisticated style with a discrete wallet slot for cards or cash.

Protect GALAXY S7’s flawless display from harm with Alpha Glass screen protection. The fortified, anti-shatter glass defends the display while reactive technology retains touchscreen sensitivity. Alpha Glass is available in Clear or Privacy.

Defender Series, Commuter Series, Symmetry Series, Strada Series, and Alpha Glass protection are available now. For more information and product availability, visit
