NewerTech Announces Award-Winning NuGuard KX Protective Case for Samsung's Galaxy S4 Smartphone

$29 case provides certified rugged protection without sacrificing style, comprising function or adding bulk

Woodstock, IL—February 20, 2014— Newer Technology Inc. (NewerTech®), a leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad® performance upgrades and accessories, announced today its new NuGuard® KX protective case for Samsung's Galaxy S4 smartphone. The NuGuard KX is a remarkably thin, exceptionally lightweight, and highly durable case that combines protection with style and uninhibited functionality. NewerTech's latest KX model is available for $29 in Blue and Black. Both feature a black Edge Guard face frame and a full replacement Lifetime Warranty.

Extreme Protection Without Bulk
Leveraging the features that have made NewerTech's award-winning NuGuard KX case for the iPhone and iPad so popular, the NuGuard KX case for Galaxy S4 has a slim, one-piece design that fits the Galaxy S4 like a glove but can be installed in seconds and easily uninstalled for access to the S4's removable rear cover.

Protection That Doesn't Compromise Convenience
The NuGuard KX for Samsung Galaxy S4 features a tough, comfort-grip outer shell bonded to a soft core of advanced, made-in-the-USA X-orbing gel. This unique gel provides the ultimate in protection against accidental drops, dings, and impacts by absorbing and distributing the kinetic energy that occurs with these mishaps. With the distinctive cross-hatch texture design on KX's back side, Galaxy S4 users will have a better grip on their phones, yet unlike some texturized cases, the KX-encased phones slide easily into and out of a pocket.

The case's Edge Guard over-molding provides enhanced Galaxy S4 screen edge protection without interfering with edge-to-edge finger-touch accessibility. Users enjoy uninhibited touch keyboarding and the ability to drag and organize app icons from screen to screen. KX's precision cutouts allow full access to all of the Galaxy S4's ports and buttons.

Extreme Test Videos Prove KX Lineup's Effectiveness
The NuGuard KX protective case for the Samsung Galaxy has passed Quanta Laboratories' Military Drop Tested certification, the recognized and required Method 516.6 Procedure IV (Transit Drop) test from 48 inches. To see the KX case line's energy X-orbing gel protection in action, visit for videos showing protection at 10,15, and even 20-foot drops onto concrete, as well as a 131 foot drop test from the from Other World Computing's towering on-site wind turbine.

"Our new NuGuard KX case is the world's only Galaxy S4 case with kinetic energy X-orbing gel protection to absorb and evenly distribute impacts," Larry O'Connor, president of Newer Technology Inc., noted. "The case delivers up to eight times the shock absorption with less bulk and at a better price compared to similar protective cases, for great function, exceptional form, and comfort."
