With the latest Nexus smartphone now official and for sale, we can expect to see Google Nexus 5 accessories to quickly follow. Google itself is already listing two of them, a bumper case and an LG QuickCover, on Google Play but they cannot be ordered just yet.
The first is a bumper case available in Black, Gray, Bright Red, Bright Yellow. Measuring 142 by 74 by 10 millimeters and weighing 19 grams, it adds little bulk to the Nexus. It features a hard outer shell and soft rubber lining that will protect your phone from bumps and shocks.
For those looking for a bit more protection, there is also the LG QuickCover. It is a custom-fit unibody case that comes with matte finish front cover. It features a hole on the front so that you can see the LED notification light even with the cover closed. At 39 grams, it weighs a bit more than the bumper case. It measures 140 by 74 by 12 millimeters. It is available in Black or White.
Both cases promise to not interfere with Nexus wireless chargers.
The Nexus 5 Bumper Case will sell for CA$34.95 and the LG QuickCover for CA$49.99. Both are listed as “coming soon.”
