Each of those variations can help you choose a few filters and different styling choices to personalize your case much more.
There’s a little bit of tech constructed into these instances, as nicely. Google says there’s a programmable shortcut button on the again of the case that may can help you launch your favourite app with a single click on. So far as I can see, Google is utilizing NFC to energy this function.
