Samsung's official cases for the Galaxy S9/S9+ leak
Samsung's official cases for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have surfaced. There will be two new styles, Hyperknit and Protective Standing Cover. The former is a woven texture that is usually found in outfits made for those weekend warriors who are into sports. In fact, the box points out that the case is lightweight and sporty. For those who are, shall we say "rough" with their phones, there is the Protective Standing Cover which debuted last year for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This case is certified to offer military grade protection (MIL-STD-810G-516.7) and will help your Galaxy S9/S9+ survive a drop of 4.9 feet or less. It also will protect the device from dust, extreme temperatures, and features a kickstand for watching video in landscape.
Also available will be the Clear View Standing Cover that was originally offered for the recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This accessory was resurrected for the Galaxy S8/S8+. This case allows the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ to be used as an alarm clock sitting on your nightstand. Another case style returning is the LED View Cover, featuring an LED display that will show you notifications, calls, battery level and the time.
First offered for the Galaxy S8, the Alcantara Cover is made from, well, Alcantara. This is a soft microfiber with a premium feel, and the case comes with an NFC chip. Samsung's Silicone Cover also is back, and like all of the aforementioned accessories, it is available for both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
