BodyGuardz uses an aluminum bezel to tackle the iPhone 6 screen protector problem

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.

Some companies have taken a stab at solving this issue, but at CES we were able to go hands-on with BodyGuardz’s upcoming solution.

“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.
