Belkin launches accessories for Samsung’s new Galaxy S5

Accessories vendor Belkin has launched a line of accessories for Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone, including folios, protection cases, athletic armbands and charging solutions for home and the road.

“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, in a statement. “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.”

While all of the new cases will protect against scratches, drops and everyday wear and tear, Belkin said certain designs feature added unique features. For example, the 2-in-1 Wallet Folio uses Belkin’s new, detachable inner Xpose frame that can either slide up for taking photos or be removed for use as a separate protective case. The Grip Extreme line of cases, for those in need of more heavy duty protection, feature dual-layer protection utilizing a rigid, glass-fibre reinforced inner skeleton and a flexible, shock-absorbing outer shell. And on the sports front, there are new Galaxy S5 offerings in Belkin’s Sport-Fit, Sport-Fit Plus and Slim-Fit lines.

Finally, Samsung has launched new 2.1 amp charging solutions for the car and the home bundled with a three-foot USB 3.0 cable.

The cases start at $24.99.
