Smart cases are nothing new: Samsung and LG have been selling them for a while. Smart cases have a window in the front flap, and when the phone detects that this case is on, it’ll show a special screen in the window that’s tailored to the size and for easy use of select features. Whether it’s the square Samsung window or the round LG one, it all works the same.
Sony wants in on this game, as the company will be releasing the Sony Style Cover SCR24 for the Xperia Z3 smartphone. This cover has a square window built into the center that offers a special mode to show the time and notifications. It can also run smart window apps and widgets. Overall, this is nothing we haven’t seen before.
Though it isn’t new, it’s nice that Sony is offering this case to its customers. Choice is always a good thing, and the support built into the Xperia Z3 will allow third-party manufacturers to create some unique stuff as well. The case will come in black, white, copper or turquoise and will launch with the Xperia Z3 this month. What do you guys think of smart cases?
