FP4. Back cover and Protective cases

To increase the longevity of your Fairphone 4, we designed extra features to make it as robust as possible. It comes with an integrated back cover.

We do have a Fairphone 4 Protective Soft Case in our accessory line in case you like extra protection for your Fairphone 4. 

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


Fairphone 4 Back cover

The Fairphone 4 is designed with an integrated Back cover that acts as a battery cover, hosts the NFC antenna, and connects to the core module to contain all the other spare parts.

Fairphone 4 Protective Soft Case

The Fairphone 4 Protective Soft Case is made from a new line of bio-based thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), from renewable-sourced materials. 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 bio-based 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.

Please note: the actual color of the Pastel red Protective Case is Pantone 2032C:

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 Soft Case 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.
