As far as I'm concerned, your fancy gadget is only as good as the case protecting it. Thankfully we've got companies like Belkin around pumping out cool cases. With the Samsung Galaxy S5 just announced, they're not wasting any time and have already announced a line of accessories for Samsung's new flagship phone. Belkin is putting out an assortment of cases, armbands, and chargers for the phone. The 2-in-1 Wallet Folio allows you to protect your phone while also carrying your credit cards. The Grip Extreme is for people like me who need exceptional protection and offers dual-layer protection - a glass-fibre reinforced inner skeleton and a shock-absorbing outer shell. The Sport-Fit, Sport-Fit Plus, and Slim-Fit are all made from high-performance neoprene and ensure that your phone stays securely attached while you exercise. Finally there are the 2.1 amp chargers which come with USB 3.0 cables that allow you to transfer data in the blink of an eye. These accessories will be available in late March.

Full Press Release » Belkin Announces Wide Range of Cases, Armbands and Charger for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Playa Vista, CA, February 25, 2014 – Belkin today unveiled a line of accessories designed for the new Samsung Galaxy S5. Belkin’s new accessory collection includes stylish folios, everyday protection cases, athletic armbands and charging solutions for at home and on the go—a complete ecosystem of products designed to complement the new features of the Samsung Galaxy S5. “We continue to evolve our line of Samsung accessories and this collection includes some of our most innovative products to date,” said Farah Anwar, Director of Product Management at Belkin International. “Our new Samsung Galaxy S5 line reflects the myriad of ways people use their smartphones and is designed to provide enhanced functionality and protection without sacrificing style or productivity. We believe you shouldn’t have to choose between a case that gives you peace of mind and one that fits in your pocket.” Belkin’s new Samsung Galaxy S5 cases are designed to protect against scratches, drops and everyday wear and tear, but specialized offerings provide unique design features above and beyond traditional smartphone cases. The 2-in-1 Wallet Folio features Belkin’s new, detachable inner Xpose frame that can either slide up for taking photos or be removed all together for use as a separate protective case to make phone conversations easier. Featuring a bold colour-block design, pebble-grain texture and metallic accents, the 2-in-1 Wallet Folio cover provides a stylish place to hold credit or business cards and also serves as a stand for hands-free viewing. For those needing more rugged protection, the Grip Extreme features dual-layer protection combining a rigid, glass-fibre reinforced inner skeleton and a flexible, shock-absorbing outer shell. Like all of Belkin’s everyday protection cases for the Samsung Galaxy S5, including the Grip Max, Grip Candy, Grip Bumper and Grip Vue, its strength comes from smart design, offering exceptional protection without the bulk. For sports enthusiasts and activity buffs, Belkin is also expanding its current lineup of sport armbands including the Sport-Fit, Sport-Fit Plus and Slim-Fit for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Created from high-performance neoprene, the low-profile armbands secure the phone and comfortably stay out of the way and in place while exercising. Also available for the Samsung Galaxy S5 are Belkin’s fast and safe charging solutions for both the car and home. The 2.1 amp chargers are bundled with a 3-foot USB 3.0 cable, allowing users the added ability to transfer data to a laptop up to twice as fast as USB 2.0.
