Premium smartphone designs with large displays like the Samsung Galaxy S4 are prompting an increasing number of case designers to incorporate folio covers into their designs.

“At UNIEA, we’re finding that the addition of the folio cover is fast becoming a critical feature for mobile device cases. With this new round of GS4 cases, we are getting maximum functionality out of folio designs."

With the past two years giving rise to an increased number of large-screened smartphones, a growing number of smartphone cases are beginning to feature designs that include folio covers that offer increased protection for larger displays and dual-function stands for video viewing.

The large-screened smartphone evolution began in large part with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S line of smartphones, which, by 2012, had dwarfed the size of the iPhone’s original 3.5-inch screen. Along with the Galaxy Note II, the Samsung Galaxy S3’s 4.8-inch screen set a new standard in smartphones, known as the “phablet” – a smartphone with mini tablet-like dimensions. The impact on the market has been significant enough that some analysts believe that it finally motivated Apple to expand the screen size on the iPhone 5.

Now, with the Galaxy S4’s 4.99-inch screen, the need for smartphone cases that feature increased protection for large displays has become a reality.

UNIEA Samsung Galaxy S4 Cases – Inspired By Next-Generation Smartphone Design

UNIEA’s new release of its brand-new Samsung Galaxy S4 cases prominently feature innovative folio cover designs that offer considerably more coverage and protection for the GS4’s large screen. In the past, folio cases have typically been constructed of synthetic PU leather. UNIEA’s new designs, however, are combining hard shell case materials with soft folio covers, as well as using the folio to meet many of mobile users’ demands.

The UNIEA Soft Suit Folio case for the GS4 utilizes a soft, synthetic PU leather material. The material offers a great look and feel for the device, while the folio cover is rigid enough to also double as a stand for viewing video on the GS4.

Conversely, UNIEA’s Dots and Frankly Felt series of GS4 cases bring together two completely different construction materials, featuring an ABS plastic shell with an attached PU leather folio cover. While the PU leather folio cover offers supple protection for the device’s screen, the ABS plastic shell allows UNIEA to apply vibrant IMD-printed graphics onto the case, complete with glossy UV coatings to keep the cases looking fresh and new.

Alternate folio case designs, such as the UNIEA Fundamental Folio series GS4 case, features an integrated folio cover that opens to the side of the case, offering an ergonomic solution to the addition of the folio cover.

All of UNIEA’s new folio cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4 are designed to switch on the auto-sleep function as well, just like Apple’s own iPad Smart Covers. Together with a convenient inner ID hard holder, the addition of the folio cover to these new UNIEA cases gives users a lot of functionality and protection.

Mr. Jeffrey Chan, Managing Director of UNIEA, explains his vision for the inclusion of folio covers on the majority of the company’s new GS4 case designs:

“At UNIEA, we’re finding that the addition of the folio cover is fast becoming a critical feature for mobile device cases. With this new round of GS4 cases, we are getting maximum functionality out of folio designs: protection for the screen, an inner ID card slot, auto-sleep function triggering, a video stand on some models, and a great look as well.”

The entire line of UNIEA Samsung galaxy S4 cases is now available at and at authorized retailers worldwide.
