Bumpers, Back covers and Protective Cases FP3/FP3+


To enhance the longevity of your Fairphone 3/Fairphone 3+ (FP3/FP3+), we designed extra features to make it as robust as possible. It comes with an integrated cover.

The Fairphone 3 ships with a protective bumper. The Fairphone 3+ does not need one. We do have Protective Cases in our accessory line.

As with any electronic device, keep it away from sand, dust, and moisture!

FP3/FP3+ Protective case

The FP3/FP3+ Protective case is available in Black and in Green

The FP3/FP3+ Protective case is made from a new line of bio-based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), from renewable-sourced material (37%). It provides the same performance and benefits as regular petroleum-based TPU while reducing it's eco-footprint. Our product team chose this material for its great balance in material properties: the best look and feel, durability against wear & tear, protection of the phone with the highest biobased content while maintaining a fair price point

Outstanding benefits of the material are:

  • Superior abrasion, impact and puncture resistance
  • Antimicrobial
  • Fungal resistance
  • Very good chemical resistance
  • Cold temperature flexibility
  • UV resistance

This made it the ideal choice for our protective case, allowing for a slim, lightweight construction, designed for longevity


  • Material: safe and non-toxic TPU (plastic) from Lubrizol, which contains 37% of biomaterial: bio-based carbon content - No extra coating applied. Sustainable: (better than biodegradable)
  • Packaging: FSC certified paper material - Printing ink based on soy
  • Dimensions:
    • Length: 161.6 mm
    • Width: 76mm
    • Thickness: 12.98 mm
    • Weight: 29.2 g
  • 0.8mm height increase around the camera to minimize lens damage
  • Inner rib structure to create an airbag effect to absorb 90% dropping impact
  • TUV certified 1.2M – 1.8M dropping test based on UN38.3 standard
  • Remains in shape and structure to protect the phone after extreme environmental impact test (-20 C/+55°C)

We decided to limit the preparation and coating to diminish the amount of waste and hazardous materials involved in producing the covers, which means that they are more prone to get dirty

You can easily clean your Protective cover with the kind of cloth used to clean glasses. If you separate it from the phone, you can clean it with baby wipes, a microfibre cloth with soft soap, or address persistent stains with a pencil eraser
