Lifeproof Has A New Case For The LG G5

Already available for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6S, Lifeproof has expanded its Fre range to include the LG G5. The Fre has everything you’d expect from a Lifeproof case — protection from water, dirt, snow and drops.

LifeProof developed the Fre as part of the “Made for LG” program in collaboration with LG, and is available today for $99.95

“Working collaboratively with LG as part of the ‘Made for LG’ program has made it easier for us to develop a case that meets our rigorous testing standards and deliver it in time for our customers to protect their phones as soon as they buy them,” said Bonnie Soon, LifeProof General Manager for APAC.

Here’s the rundown of the features: you’ve got a sleek metal body, a slide-out Battery and a “modular type” design as well as a rear fingerprint scanner and a dual rear camera with a standard and 135-degree wide-angle lens — the widest available in any smartphone.

Your phone will be guarded from “frigid water, coarse sand, sticky mud and hard hits with legendary protection,” promises Lifeproof. Fre is outfitted to keep the LG G5 safe in up to 2 metres of water for an hour, and meets military standards for shock and impact protection, including drops up to 2 metres.

The Fre is slim, waterproof and blocks out scratches with a built-in screen protector to keep the 3D Arc Glass that makes up the phone’s 5.3-inch, always-on display vibrant, Lifeproof says. The Fre also features anti-reflective optical-glass lens cover and a sound enhancement system to minimise the impact of the case on photos, videos and audio.
