Leak reveals Samsung will offer a new design for one of its Galaxy S10 accessories
Tomorrow is the big day, and some of you are ready to pounce on the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Samsung Galaxy S10 or the Samsung Galaxy S10+ by placing a pre-order. The phones are expected to be delivered starting on March 8th, so you'll have plenty of time to play that great accessory game in your mind, Case or No Case. If you do decide to go with a case, you know that there will so many options that it will make your head spin like Linda Blair (Google it). Don't forget that Samsung will also be offering its own cases as well.

A tweet disseminated by tipster Roland Quandt reveals that Samsung has come up with a new line of cases for its upcoming flagship models. Instead of offering a flip case that uses LEDs to show you the time and notifications on the front cover, the new cases have the LED on back. The packaging calls it "Emotional LED lighting effect." But if you favor more traditional looking cases with the LEDs in front, that will be available too.

The problem with the setup of the new style cases is that if you're the sort who likes to put the phone face up on a desk or table, you're not going to be able to view the LEDs. Perhaps that is where the "emotional" part of the LED lighting comes into play. Miss an important call or notification because you didn't see it on the case, and you just might get emotional.

If you want to stick with the whole first party thing, or you find the whole LED on back setup to be pretty cool, you should expect to spend up to $60 for the case. This isn't an official price mind you, we should know more about that as soon as tomorrow.

Will you still be able to wirelessly charge other devices with these cases? Also, how do they power these cases? through the wireless charging of the phone or the Type-C port?

I read on AP that it will charge wirelessly. In theory wirelessly charging the phone should work with the case on.

I like having reverse wireless charging for cool case accessories. But I wonder how efficient it is. I suppose the case has a battery that pulls minimal power when it finally runs down, like the S-Pen. I hope they introduce some next gen carbon nanotube batteries soon with 10,000 mAh in the same volume.

Yeah let's buy a 1100$ phone that you can't put a screen protector on it because the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor won't be able to read your thumbprint. No thanks!

"The problem with the setup of the new style cases is that if you're the sort who likes to put the phone face up on a desk or table, you're not going to be able to view the LEDs. " Oh my this article..do you know that THAT is the purpose of always-on display right? Samsung put an LED at the back for people who likes putting their phone face DOWN. It is a BACK-ONLY case, NOT a flip cover.
