FRÈ is LifeProof’s most heavy-duty line, offering superb all-round protection to your phone, without making it feel bulky at all. FRÈ is also the company’s hottest selling range and wraps your phone in Military Standard 810G-516.6 armour that should withstand a good amount of drops, fumbles, bumps and what not. The display is completely protected from scratches by a virtually invisible front layer that fully retains its functionality and visibility.
Even though the company’s site doesn’t explicitly say it at this point, we would expect that LifeProof would use the same sound-enhancing tech they put in the FRÈ iPhone 7 cases, which boosts your phone’s audio output to allow you to make calls and listen to music with the case on. Nonetheless, the FRÈ case completely seals the phone, while keeping the USB and headphones ports accessible (headphones adapter comes in the box). Like we said before, the case seems comparatively slim for the level of protection it delivers, and also maintains full access to buttons and controls.
LifeProof hasn’t given a date of when the cases will become available to order, but you can subscribe to receive an email notification. We don’t reckon it will be before the 21st of April, when the handsets go on sale, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t spend three weeks of daydreaming.
