LifeProof announces FRE for Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+

SAN DIEGO, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsung changed the game with the introduction of the curved-edge screen, bringing a host of new features and sleek lines to its brilliant Galaxy displays. Now, LifeProof doubles down on curved-edge device protection with the introduction of FRĒ for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, coming soon.  

The waterproof, drop proof, dirt proof, snow proof cases deliver another step in the evolution of the No. 1-selling waterproof smartphone case brand.* FRĒ for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are LifeProof's first cases for a curved-edge device and deliver on the brand promise of freedom and a do-anything attitude.

"LifeProof cases let you take your device into the heart of the action," said LifeProof CEO Jim Parke. "Whether you're headed to the beach, backcountry or the skate park with your new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, our latest cases will handle just about anything you put them through. And with FRĒ's streamlined style, you'll forget it's there – until you're thankful it was."

FRĒ for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ shows off all-new curves on a proven, award-winning design. Dive headfirst into the surf with waterproof protection to 6.6 feet for up to an hour, take on rocky trails with drop protection up to 6.6 feet and hit the slopes by bike or board with complete protection from dirt and snow. The Infinity Display remains responsive, clear and safe from scratches with a built-in screen protector that hugs the edges. Best of all, the thin, lightweight Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ cases are pocket-friendly and allow the incredible dual-pixel cameras and audio features to shine through.

As part of the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program, LifeProof cases for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ carry the 'Designed for Samsung' logo, which indicates that they have been designed specifically for Samsung mobile devices and have been certified to meet Samsung performance standards.

FRĒ for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be available soon and start at $89.99 MSRP. For color choices and to sign up for product availability notification, visit lifeproof.com.
