Nokia details Lumia 620 water resistant shell accessory

Lumia 620 Protective Case

Nokia has published a new article on its Conversations Blog that goes into detail about the water resistant Lumia 620 case we looked at a few days ago. While it was considered a case, the team has confirmed that it is in fact a new shell that will replace the current cover on the Lumia 620. This will mean it will integrate well with the design of the Windows Phone. Best of all, it's grey.

As we've noted previously, the shell will sport IP54 certification, meaning the protective shell has been certified to improve protection against dust and splashes of water. For anyone needing or just wanting extra shield for their phone, this replaceable shell is definitely set to be a worthwhile investment.

Harri Vuolle, Lumia Product Manager at Nokia, had the following to comment on the accessory:

"The protective shell improves the dust and splash protection. The gaps between the camera window and the shell as well as the display and the shell are better sealed, and the mesh that covers the loudspeaker is denser, making it harder for water or dust to get in."

Much like other Lumia 620 replaceable shells, the protective shell has been cast using a dual-shot process. The interior shell is created using a rigid polycarbonate and the exterior is made of TPSiV, which is a flexible, rubber-like material. Utilising both materials, Nokia is able to craft a shell that's solid enough to absorb daily forces a smartphone may be subject to, while able to provide some give when needed.

When the protective shel lis installed on a Lumia 620, the material wraps around the front of the Windows Phone, more so than the non-protective shell. This protects the screen should the handset sustain a blow to the cheek. Vuolle continues to explain the limits of such protection:

"While the protective shell does not make your Lumia 620 indestructible or 100% waterproof, it’s ideal for people who enjoy active lifestyle where working up a sweat, getting caught up in a rain or dropping the phone can be a regular occurrence. It’s also suits people who want to use their smartphone at work, even if it’s a dusty, damp environment."

The best part about the accessory is that it's a shell and not an external cover or case. This saves the consumer from destroying the good looks of the Lumia 620. Available in grey with a yellow interior, the shell will be available at the end of March, depending on location. The RRP on the product will be around 25 euro ($30).

nokias killing it, THEY AINT GOING BACK TO JAIL!!

Hopefully the 820 also gets it. 920 users require a case though.

(Bug Testing Edit)

Tjalsma says:

They have an official 920 case that is fantastic.  Saying that, a case like this would be amazing due to the dust issues the 920 has.

schlubadub says:

I wonder how well this will resist coffee or beer spills... I've had both happen before :P

Jf.Vigor says:

Lol good advice.. I got Bacardi 151 spilt on my titan. Stupid birthday girl. Stupid me for putting my phone down on the table

I had that happen to my MacBook. I felt the pain of that... £250 down the pan on a repair.

vijax21 says:

Not your fault, the phone is so big can't sit while its in pocket..I'll be careful with my 920

lancepr says:

Jnbs says:

I doubt that will happen for the L620.. I'll be happy if it happens though..

washlampah says:

Big Supes says:

I have literally just got off the phone to Three after hooking my mum up with a 620. :) Good times.

aubreyq says:

Now that's a good son!

Chemilinski says:

Haha, so I'm not the only one getting my mum a 620 for Mother's Day :P
This shell is the next thing I'm getting her for sure.

fieldeffect says:

I think that Nokia would sell far more of these and all the other wonderful replacable Lumia 620 shells if they did something really crazy like... allow people to buy them.
From what I can make out, none of them area available anywhere in world.

Can anyone tell me when this shell will be available in India?

5 months later, and this accessory is still nowhere to be found. C'mon Nokia. :-(
