Expect Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to come with a transparent case in some countries

With only two weeks left until the official reveal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, new details about the upcoming flagship continue to surface. The latest news concerns the sales packages of the phablet, which is said to include an accessory that was also included with the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition: a transparent case.

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.

I went clear case with gold colored bumper to show up my gold colored Note5. I'm probably going to do the same for Note8 unless i go with black color which seems to be my preference this time around

The only thing that will explode is your head when the reviews come out.

No cases for me. I throw a skin on the back and that's it. Been running like that on s7e, s8 and will on the Note.

I don't like using cases. These Samsung flagships are too beautiful to hide
