MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2016) - i-BLADES, Inc., creator of the world's first Smartcase, today announced its new Galaxy S7 Smartcase, a phone case that turns the Samsung Galaxy S7 into a modular phone.

Following swiftly from the announcements of the modular LG G5 and modular Moto Z, i-BLADES ( now makes it possible for the Samsung Galaxy S7 to go modular too. The i-BLADES Galaxy S7 case is not only a stylish slim case that protects the Galaxy S7, but it also advances its capabilities as a modular phone, with removable Smartblades. Smartblades are modules that snap-on and snap-off the phone case to customize and personalize smartphones.

With its built-in patented micro-thin smart technology, the i-BLADES Smartcase creates a smart platform within the phone case. This smart platform allows users to expand the capabilities of their Galaxy S7 (and other smartphones), leveraging consumers' needs to buy phone cases for protection, while allowing them to switch to a smart modular future.

The i-BLADES Galaxy S7 Smartcase comes with the Turbo 64 Smartblade. When attached to the i-BLADES Smartcase, this thin removable Smartblade gives Galaxy S7 users 18 hours more talk time, 10 hours more video viewing plus 64GB more memory. It also gives the Galaxy S7 user an additional microSD slot for expandable storage. This is particularly valuable for Galaxy S7 dual SIM users who are prevented from using the microSD slot for expandable storage when using dual SIM.

Since the i-BLADES Smartblades are stackable, multiple Smartblades can be charged at one time via their own USB or through the phone case. This lets users enjoy extremely long lasting power through multiple pocketable Smartblades. The Smartblades are also transferable to other Smartcase users both for future and for past smartphones.

i-BLADES recently announced a Smart VR blade (a portable VR headset) that attaches to the Smartcase. Users can pre-order the Galaxy S7 Smartcase with Turbo 65 Smartblade for $99. As a one-off promotion to showcase the i-BLADES ecosystem, users who pre-order the Galaxy S7 Smartcase with Smartblade can add the Smart VR Blade for a total of just $119. Go to choose the Smartcase and add the Smart VR Blade to cart with the coupon Smartvrgalaxys7. Limited stocks are available and the offer lasts until the end of July only.

Earlier this year, i-BLADES announced "on the go entertainment" as well as a partnership with the world's leading micro-sensor maker Bosch Sensor-Tech. More Smartblades will be announced later this year.
