HTC introduces transparent Ice View case for the HTC10

HTC's new Ice View case for the HTC10 is comprised of a semi-transparent layer of plastic so you can see your phone's screen even with the cover closed.

HTC Ice View case - HTC10

The HTC 10 isn’t the only HTCproduct to get a major makeover today, with the familiar Dot View case being replaced by the stylish new Ice View case. Where the Dot View case was very much a “pixellated” offering, Ice View ups the “pixel density” just like the phone on which it belongs.

Spec showdown: HTC10 versus the competition

The reason HTCcalled its new case Ice View is because it is comprised of a semi-transparent layer of plastic rather than a perforated sheet of rubber. This means that instead of the blocky outlines you might know from the Dot View case, the Ice View case lets you see the full screen underneath, so there are no limits as to what can be displayed.

When the cover is closed, you can get the usual array of lock screen information on the case like weather, time, notifications and so on. But the real kicker is that you can also launch the camera app and see and shoot photos with the cover closed.

As if that isn’t cool enough, HTCalso notes on its product page: “HTC Ice View also supports 3rd party notifications like Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, QQ and more – so you can follow your favorite social media at a glance.” Not bad for a protective cover.

  • The Ice View case costs $49.99 and can be ordered on the HTC website.
