It’s not uncommon that we see accessories for new Apple devices before they’ve even been announced — we covered the first cases for the iPhone 5C earlier this week. But they usually come from no-name manufacturers in China who are scrambling to get their products out there before anyone else, even if it means building them from rumored specifications.
It is uncommon that we see premature releases from big brands, however. But Spigen SGP has already made its first iPhone 5C cases and screen protectors available to order on Amazon.
You’ve probably already heard of Spigen, but for those who haven’t, it’s a pretty big accessory manufacturer, and it produces high quality accessories for a whole host of the latest Android and iOS devices. Its products aren’t cheap, but you get what you pay for.
The company is selling an Ultra Thin Air snap-on hard case for the iPhone 5C, priced at $21.99, and a set of four clear screen protectors for $4.54. The case ships on August 31, while the protectors ship on August 15 — but you can pre-order both from today on Amazon.
While accessories from small, no-name manufacturers are always questionable, there’s a chance that those from Spigen are built from final specifications supplied by Apple or one of its manufacturing partners. It’s unlikely a big company would risk its reputation selling accessories which may not fit a final product.
With that said, expect the iPhone 5C to look identical to the device in the picture above.
