The gently curved glass edges of the iPhone 6/Plus screens feel absolutely luxurious but are a nightmare for screen protector companies. Compounding this issue is the fact that rigid tempered glass is now the preferred material for iPhone screen protection.
“The Crown” combines BodyGuardz’s Pure tempered glass screen protector with a finely crafted anodized aluminum rim. The glass protects the entire flat surface of an iPhone 6/Plus screen, while the thin aluminum bezel covers its curved edges. During our brief demonstration we were impressed with how both of these pieces came together to create a seamless solution.
The aluminum material will come in different colors when it’s released next month including gold, silver, and black. The iPhone 6 version is slated to cost $34.95, with the bigger iPhone 6 Plus version coming in at $5 more.
