CES 2019: OtterBox Teams Up With PopSockets for New 'Otter + Pop' iPhone Cases

OtterBox today announced that it is partnering with PopSockets for a new series of "Otter + Pop" Symmetry cases for iPhone, which come equipped with a built-in "PopGrip" compatible with removable, swappable "PopTops" at the back of the case.

PopSockets have become extremely popular over the course of the last year, with the stick-on holders available in a range of colors and patterns. The new Otter + Pop cases will also be available in a range of colors for what OtterBox says is a variety of "swappable, unstoppable combinations" to fit "every look, style, scene, or vibe."

"OtterBox and PopSockets collaborating on an integrated case was a no-brainer," said Jim Parke, OtterBox CEO. "Our fans love variety, customization and sleek protection. With Otter + Pop, we can deliver that in one thin iPhone case that combines our legacy of protection with all of the unique attributes that PopSockets delivers."
Otter + Pop cases combine OtterBox's protective Symmetry cases with a PopGrip with the aim of making the iPhone easier to hold with one hand than ever before. When not in use, the integrated PopGrip lays flush with the case, so it's not in the way.

Otter + Pop will be coming soon to the OtterBox and PopSocket websites, with the cases to be priced starting at $59.95. Additional PopTops will be available for $8 each.

Otter + Pop? You mean those delicious things in every family’s freezer that cut the sides of your mouth? Why would I want one on my phone?

Good God, Those are hideous. Otterbox cases are bad enough in the ugly department then they add those nasty things to it. They’ll probably sell millions. People today.

Yeah, this would actually sell me on a pop socket, I think. The form factor here seems really practical

It allows people to have their thumb hover over the center of the phone instead of below the center while using only one hand. Consequently, it’s easier to reach all over the display. By locking that nipple kind of thing in between two fingers, it prevents the slippery phone from balancing and sliding of their tiny hands. It remedies phone drop anxiety.

Asian people have used such stuff for years, combined with a hovering over screen home button (accessibility setting). They used suction cups with a ring like 5 years ago. I saw that in Hong Kong, and found it really odd. They have such small hands, and even reachability was not a good enough remedy.
Now, with that home button gone on the newest phones, that additional clutter of a software home button in the display is gone.

I use an iphone 8 Plus, and have hands size 12, good combination :)

Some people need to adapt to the proportion of their phone, while common sense would have them buy a phone that fits their proportions.:D

Ah thank you! My daughter always seemed to be holding it like a doorknob.:confused::rolleyes:

I was just coming here to post this. I wasn't really a fan for that reason, but would maybe consider one now. But, they're also $60, $20 more than an existing symmetry case.
