Speck announced that its CandyShell Clear cases are coming to Android for the first time, and will be available with the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and LG G5.

The mobile accessory maker will be offering the CandyShell Clear and CandyShell Clear Onyx cases for all three of the aforementioned smartphones. The two different styles of cases sit at the same price–$40–though the product page for the LG G5 doesn’t seem to be available yet.

If you’re not familiar with Speck’s CandyShell Clear lineup, they’re military-grade protective cases that employ a proprietary material. This material is able to take a hefty impact impact and will actually resist UV yellowing. The same goes for the CandyShell Clear Onyx case, but it offers a sleek and “smoky” finish.

If you’re interested, you can check out the entire lineup Speck has for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge here.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted as to when Speck opens up sales for the LG G5 cases, probably sometime in March when the G5 actually goes up for pre-order.

    I have this case for my iPhone 6s. I love Speck cases, and I love clear cases, so when this came out I thought it would be the perfect case for my phone, but it’s not. For what it’s worth, the case really protective. I’ve dropped my phone face down a few times with absolutely no damage. However, the case gets dirty and scratched VERY quickly. It also doesn’t help that it had smudges on the inside (which doesn’t go away) when it came in, and it’s on the heavier side of cases as well. If you want a clear case, a spigen is probably a better option. If you’re interested in this case, definitely read the reviews for the iPhone version on Amazon before you do anything else.
