In our daily to daily life, we spend most of the time using our smartphones and not worrying about how dirty our mobile screen gets. For Example, most of us take our phones in the most unwanted places like our bathroom. It gets fully covered in bacteria as any surface you make contact with your phone also consists of bacteria. FYI, An average smartphone screen is more than three times dirtier than a toilet seat.
But now, thanks to Otterbox, your phone screen would be bacteria-free as they launched their first iPhone screen protector at CES 2020 a few days back, which repels the bacteria from the screen as it comes with EPA-registered Antimicrobial Technology.
This Anti Microbial screen protector provides wonderful protection against germs as the company has used its own ionic silver into the glass. The screen protector also shields your device from drops, scratches, and of course, germs. All thanks to the combined efforts of Otterbox and Corning.
At the event, the CEO of Otterbox, Mr. Jim Parke said,
We use our phones every day and take them with us wherever we go, including to some not entirely sanitary spaces, Amplify Glass (or Anti Microbial Screen Protector) now features proprietary anti-microbial technology that suppresses the growth of several common stains and odor-causing bacteria to protect the surface of the screen protector, so you don’t have to give phone grime a second thought.
For your information, Otterbox Anti Microbial Screen Protector is the first screen protector that is inscribed with EPA. It offers five times more scratch protection than a regular glass screen protector. According to the reports, it apparently kills 99.9% of germs, which includes staph and E.coli.
There is no date and pricing information available yet, but according to Otterbox, the product will soon be available for purchase.
