Phone protector case for Librem 5

Is there any good phone case for the Librem 5?

Also if it was waterproof and/or EMF blocking phone case that would be a huge plus.

Thank you,

Jackson

I just want something that helps protect the screen from breaking if the phone slips out of my hand. Purism should be offering a case. This seems like a serious oversight to me as 3rd parties probably won’t bother with the L5.

there will be a protective film on the Librem 5 screen when we ship them. As for protective cases, it is in out To Do list, but at this moment we are focused in shipping the Librem 5 first.

Not really an oversight. It has been discussed in this forum on and off for a couple of years. q.v.

Because this will be a relatively bulky phone, you may want to have the phone first before deciding on the case, given that a case will make the combination even bigger.

Likewise, you can’t even think about making a case until you have the final definite dimensions and it is only now that Purism is at Evergreen (mass production batch) that the final dimensions are known.

Until an actual case designed for the Librem 5 is available, you could use something like this.

you can also make yourself one out of thin paracord if you’re handy with that sort of thing …

Unfortunately, the maximum thickness for that case is 12mm, but the Librem 5 is 15.5mm thick. Maybe a leather folding case will work:

I take it the model with just be available for consumers to use, or is Purism actually planning on delivering cases with the mass production units(and presumably to previous evergreen owners).

Please please Purism start selling soft case protector in your store to Librem 5 and take my money. :thinking:

I got a silicon protection for my old Moto G6. It is only for the back but protruding half a millimeter over the screen. It is astonishingly efficient in protecting the phone and fairly thin. The siz of the Moto G6 is almost the same as Librem 5 but it is thinner. But I would like to have the same kind of silicon back cover for Librem 5.
