Google has added yet another case to its rapidly growing lineup of official accessories for its flagship smartphone of 2013, the Nexus 5. The ‘Snap Case’ retails for $29.99 directly from the Play Store in the U.S. and is available in either black, aqua, grey, white or clear.

The Snap Case is a traditional hard plastic case which simply snaps onto the handset, covering all sides of the Nexus 5. It also hangs slightly over the front, in order to prevent the screen from smashing in the event of a front-facing drop.

‘A lightweight, durable case for your Nexus 5’, writes Google in the case’s¬†description.

We have to say that Google’s new Snap Case looks pretty similar to other minimal cases we’ve seen from other manufacturers, such as Spigen and InCase, which weigh in at around $15. However, this case comes with ‘Google’ branding, which bumps the the price up. So if you want a first-party accessory, you’ll have to pay that little bit extra.
