Expect Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to come with a transparent case in some countries
The Korean media reports Samsung will add for the first time a case made of transparent plastic in the Galaxy Note 8 retail package. The case should cover the back and sides of the smartphone and protect it from scratches.
The case is already being manufactured by 3 or 4 Korean accessory makers, as the report claims Samsung has ordered about 10 million cases for the Galaxy Note 8, not nearly enough to be available in all regions.
The transparent case will cost between $17 and $27 when purchased separately. Unfortunately, sources familiar with Samsung plans said the company is not expected to make the Galaxy Note 8 case available with the phone in the United States, Europe, and Russia.
However, after the initial release in South Korea, Samsung might expand the availability of the case to additional markets if it will have a significant positive impact on Galaxy Note 8 sales. Customer feedback will be taken into consideration as well.
