HTC has unveiled a pair of plastic snap-on cases for its new, Android-powered One S handset. Both feature a soft-touch finish and come in four colors — including black, blue, grey, and pink — and one features a built-in kickstand that makes movie watching on the go all the more enjoyable.
Both cases snap on to the back of the One S, protecting its rear end and sides from dings, dents, scuffs, and scratches. They don’t extend too far around to the front, however, so drop your One S on its face and your fancy new case is going to make no difference.
As you’d expect, both cases provide access to all of your buttons and ports, as well as your camera, flash, and speaker. HTC’s name is also engraved into the back to give the case a premium feel.
Prices start at $25 for the basic snap-on, but if you want the built-in kickstand, that price tag rises to $40. There are some caveats to the kickstand, however: It adds a big bulge to the back of your device so that it will never sit flat on your desk, and when the kickstand is in use, you won’t be able to access your handset’s micro-USB port.
HTC says both cases will be available “soon.”
