Speck introduces new iPhone 5s case with slim-fitting design

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Speck, a designer of slim-fitting protective cases and covers for smartphones, tablets and laptops, on Tuesday announced a new iPhone case for the iPhone 5 and 5s.

Speck's Candyshell + Faceplate is sleek and offers all-over protection for the consumer's smartphone, the company stated. The Candyshell is a patented dual-layer protection system in a single piece. The hard outer shell protects against impact, while the soft inner layer absorbs shock. It has a protective faceplate that applies to the device's screen and provides superior touch response, Speck stated. The faceplate also has an opening on the home button compatible with Apple's new Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor.

“With CandyShell + Faceplate we wanted to offer in slim protection what others have been offering in bulk protection,” says Bryan Hynecek, vice president of design at Speck. “We engineered this iPhone 5s/5 case to deliver durability and 360-degree protection, plus Speck’s signature color and style, that preserves the beauty of the device.”

CandyShell + Faceplate will be available in the most popular CandyShell colors, including black/slate gray, white/charcoal gray, pomodoro red/black, carnation pink/revolution purple, white/raspberry pink and raspberry pink/black, each of which feature the matching CandyShield faceplate for an additional and protective extension. All Speck cases are lab-tested for proven protection against environmental factors and everyday bumps, drops and spills.

The iPhone 5s is available Friday, Sept. 20.
