The bumper is made of ultra-thin aerospace aluminum and manufactured with chamfered edges; the same sort that the iPhone 5 boasts. It weighs just 16 grams, so it won’t be turning your slim and light iPhone into something hard to carry around.
With iPhone 5′s aluminum body and redesigned antenna layout, Apple didn’t see the need to make a new bumper for its latest flagship smartphone. However, a small company called Designed by m took it upon itself to fill the void and created the AL13.
Check out the introductory video of the AL13 bumper and see its makers reveal all details about the product.
The case will be available in red, gray, black and special Kickstarter green for early backers. Keep in mind that the AL13 will reduce your signal by 5-10%, so it’s probably not recommended to those who live in areas with spotty coverage.
AL13 Prototype Front for iPhone 4 and iPhone 5
For a limited time only, the AL13 iPhone 5 bumper sells at $45 a pop, a special price for early Kickstarter backers. When it starts selling in April this year, the regular price of the bumper will be $80.
The Galaxy Note II is about to get two additional color version. Well, at least in Korean.
After the purported black version, now there’s others to come. According to a leaked image, the two new colors are Ruby Wine and Amber Brown.
The Galaxy S III is already available in a bunch of colors, so it make sense for its bigger brother to follow suit. The Galaxy S III already has an Amber Brown version, while its red variant is called Garnet Red, so there’s some difference.
There is no info on whether those colors will leave South Korea, but I guess it will happen soon or later, just like it happened with the Galaxy S III paint jobs.
Samsung Galaxy S III refresh its lineup, with not less than four additional new colors : Amber Brown, Garnet Red, Sapphire Black and Titanium Grey.
Up until recently, Garnet Red was available exclusively from AT&T, but now Samsung has decided it should be released globally. Joining it are some business-approved colors like Titanium Grey and Sapphire Black – the former already hinted at being on the way.
The last color is Amber Brown, which comes as a bit of a surprise, since we don’t remember the last time Samsung made a smartphone rocking this color. Still, this brings the total number of available Galaxy S III color versions to six.
