New Samsung video promotes select Galaxy S8 and S8+ protective cases
Samsung today released a new video to promote some of the official protective cases that the company has made for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

In the video, you'll first discover a Clear View Standing Cover - which, in addition to protecting the dual-curve screen of the Galaxy S8, it lets you control calls, music, and other functions without flipping it open. Plus, of course, this transparent case can also act as an adjustable stand for viewing content in landscape mode.

The second case model shown in the video is an Alcantara Cover - a stylish product with a suede-like finish. According to Samsung, this case is both durable, and stain-resistant. Finally, the third case is the controversial 2Piece Cover, which looks kind of weird, and won't really cover too much of your S8 or S8+.

Interestingly, right now, from the cases seen in this new promo video, only the 2Piece one is available to buy in the US directly from Samsung (costing $19.99). Still, the Clear View Standing Cover and the Alcantara Cover can be ordered via Amazon, for prices starting at $25 and $37, respectively.

What protective case would you buy for a Galaxy S8 or a Galaxy S8+ (not necessarily from the ones seen in this article)?
