Transparent phone cases that reveal the intricate internal workings of your device are the latest trend in the smartphone accessories market. This trend is perhaps a reaction to Nothing’s unique smartphone designs, offering a quirky way to show off your device. Every brand seems to be embracing this trend, and dbrand offers a number of similar skins and cases. This time, Spigen has also entered the picture.
The Ultra Hybrid 01 Edition for Pixel 8 Pro is Spigen’s understated yet stylish solution to showcasing the insides of Google’s latest flagship. Eschewing the bright displays of copper charging coils and hidden Easter eggs, the 01 Edition depicts the Pixel 8 Pro’s interior in a more subdued grayscale, highlighted by smoky gray side rails.
Ultra Hybrid has a one-piece design that makes it easy to attach and remove from your Pixel 8 Pro. He combines two different materials: a flexible gray TPU frame and a robust polycarbonate back panel that follows the real design. This fusion of materials gives the Ultra Hybrid its resilience and protects your device from bumps and scratches. However, be sure to stay away from sharp or abrasive edges as they can damage the pattern etched on the outside of the back panel.
In contrast to many Pixel 8 Pro cases that offer a variety of colors for personal customization, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid 01 Edition is available exclusively in a smoky gray colorway. This is a good way to add an elegant touch to your phone’s aesthetic, but it may not be suitable for people who like bold colors or who change their style frequently.
On the bright side, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid 01 Edition is priced at a reasonable $39, making it a good value for a Pixel 8 Pro case.
