If you own the LG Nexus 4 smartphone and want to keep the screen free of scratches and smears, a new screen protector is now available. The screen protector comes from Xgear and is called the Fantom 4. The screen protector isn’t a clear adhesive film, it’s an actual glass sheet.
The Fantom 4 is a thin sheet of tempered glass that is shatter and scratch resistant. The glass also has a special coating that helps keep fingerprints off the screen. The glass is available with a black border right now and a version with a white border will be available later.
The glass sheet is 0.4 mm thick and features beveled edges. That should mean even with the screen protector attached to your phone it will still slip in and out of your pocket easily. The manufacturer does recommend a case to help protect the edges of the screen protector from scratches and the remainder of your phone from drops.
The Fantom 4 has a surface hardness rating of 8H. The screen protector can be purchased now for $34.99. There is no specific availability date for the white border version.[via SlashGear]
