Speck announces Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold cases for the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Fold3
Samsung exuded confidence that the world is ready to switch to foldables during its latest Galaxy Unpacked event. However, there are those who remain less than convinced by the Z Fold3 and Z Flip3, particularly as most cases for their predecessors come as two-part accessories that clip onto either 'half' of each device, leaving their potentially fragile hinges exposed.
However, Speck has moved to change this in 2021 by engineering the Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold series for the 2 high-end devices. They have a one-piece design that "moves seamlessly with the phone", and is also rated for 13-foot drop protection.
The OEM has also added a "quick-access groove" that helps users open the Z Fold3 or Z Flip3 to access their 7.6-inch and 6.7-inch flexible AMOLED displays. Then again, the Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold variants for either phone is clear, thus increasing the risk they may discolor and show stains over time. However, Speck claims to have incorporated Perfect-Clear coating and a Microban antimicrobial finish to avoid this.
However, a more 'normal' case experience while rocking the already pricey new foldables does not come cheap. The Presidio Perfect-Clear Fold for the Z Fold3 has a recommended tag of US$59.95, while that for the Z Flip3 is $64.95. They are available on the OEM's website from now.
