Targus' new Snap-On Shell case for the S4 combines a durable hard shell with a soft, textured interior finish. It comes in black, Pool Blue and crimson with a $24.99 suggested retail.
The Slim Wave case features a wave-like texture and translucent gloss and matte finish with a soft-touch interior. It comes in black, Pool Blue and fuchsia with a $19.99 suggested retail.
All three S4 cases will ship in May.
For the Galaxy Note 8, Targus’ new Kickstand case offers multiple viewing angles and an iridescent, pearl-like finish with an interior lined with a soft-touch inner lining to protect the screen from scratches.
