Smartphone accessory manufacturer Moshi today introduced its new SenseCover, a folio-style protective case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S complete with built-in touch sensors.

Indeed, the SenseCover is designed such that you can access basic functions of your phone without needing to peel back the protective front cover. A protective window near the top of the case gives you just enough room to check the time and see who’s calling. A small, touch-sensitive strip at the bottom, meanwhile, allows you to answer calls or shut off your phone’s alarm. You end calls using the strip, too, keeping your phone’s screen shielded at all times.

The main body of the Moshi SenseCover case is polycarbonate shell; the front cover is leatherette. A small magnetic clasp helps keeps the cover closed or folded back. You can see the case in action in the promotional video below.

I’ve loved folio-style cases ever since I had one on my first Palm Treo, but finding a good one for my iPhone has been difficult. I’m not sure how well the SenseCover will hold up against everyday abuse until its put through the wringer, but the design concept seems like a winner. At the very least, it looks like a stylish alternative to the similarly priced Speck CandyShell + Faceplate case that caught my eye last year.

The Moshi SenseCover is currently available in both Steel Black and Brushed Titanium finishes at The price is $45, with free shipping.
