Nexus launches new folio case for the Nexus 7, and it’s a looker

Just like the flip case, the folio case for the Nexus 7 (2013) is relatively expensive, going for $49 in the Play Store. The case is available in black or bright red and ships within two days.

It was a busy day in terms of Play Store updates, with the new white Nexus 7 and two new Google Play edition devices (Z Ultra and G Pad 8.3). The icing on the cake is a new folio case for the Nexus 7 (2013) that, we think, looks pretty sweet.

The case features a trifold cover that doubles as a kickstand (two positions) and a bumper-style open back. According to the product description on the Store listing, the case is “made from a combination of durable polycarbonate and a soft elastomer to provide a perfect fit and a secure hold”.

The good news is that, unlike the simple official flip case for the Nexus 7 (that we reviewed here), the folio case incorporates magnets in the cover, which offers two benefits – first, the cover will stay put when it’s closed, securing your device; second, the screen will automatically wake or turn off when you open or close the cover on.
