The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was only just announced a couple days ago and already case manufacturers are announcing new cases for it. Not surprising considering the popularity of Samsung smartphones these days. Ballistic, makers of rather attractive, slim tough cases have announced that they will have cases available for the Galaxy Note 7 at the end of August after the Note 7 is released. Ballistic will have 3 styles available for purchase – the Jewel, Urbanite Select and Tough Jacket – all are slim enough to fit easily in one’s pocket or bag to fully minimize that stubborn bulk that often comes with rugged protection.
Jewel ($19.99), is dubbed Ballistic’s “gem of protection” rightfully so. It’s lightweight yet durable and is prepared to protect in style. With its transparent finish, Jewel showcases the original beauty of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for the glorified mobile users who prefer not to hide away their phones with elaborate cases. Despite its slim design, Jewel offers 6 ft. of high impact drop protection, raised lips and corners to provide protection from surface shocks and scratches and reinforced Ballistic Corners® that provide security again cracked screens due to corner drops. Jewel also comes in at a sub-$20 price point for the budget-friendly mobile user.
Urbanite Select ($39.99) is Ballistic’s slimmest series yet. It offers a truly elegant design, crafted with a Buffalo leather material. This high-end finish still delivers the all-important 6 ft. high impact drop protection and also includes the same Ballistic Corners and raised lips to prevent screen shatters.
Tough Jacket ($34.99) is engineered for the ultimate adventurer looking for highly dependent drop protection while still not sacrificing slim design. It’s the toughest of the series but can still easily slide into a user’s back pocket. Tough Jacket sports two separate layers, a soft silicone and hard TPU. It’s built to also protect against environmental debris like dirt, dust and sand.
