Speck debuts CandyShell Glitter smartphone cases
SAN MATEO, Calif. — Smartphone owners shopping the electronics aisle have a durable and stylish new case from Speck to consider.
One of America's leading smartphone accessories brands has unveiled a new protective case called CandyShell Clear with Glitter, a shimmering new addition to the CandyShell collection.
Thousands of tiny pieces of glitter embedded within the case give it an eye-catching, all-over shimmer for an elegant look. Made with the same innovative materials as CandyShell Clear phone cases, CandyShell Clear with Glitter (SRP $39.95-$44.95) is designed for impact. It's equipped with military-grade drop protection in a slim radiant profile.
Speck's CandyShell line is the No. 1 best-selling phone case in the U.S. Its dual-layer construction includes a hard scratch-resistant exterior that disperses impact, and a custom engineered soft acrylic inner layer that resists UV yellowing and absorbs shock.
Like all Speck cases, it incorporates Speck's seven signs of protection:
• Military-grade protection
• Patented one-piece, multi-layer design
• Patented raised bezel screen protection
• Precision-engineered slim fit
• Perimeter port and camera protection
• Lab-tested durability
• Responsive button protection
Speck accessories are sold at Walgreens, Target, Walmart and other retailers nationwide.
