Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone at an event on 9 August. The new device joins the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in the company8217;s 2018 line-up of flagship smartphones, adding an S Pen to the party.
It8217;s a fabulous looking device that refines the Note 88217;s design, continuing with a premium glass body with the metal core but repositioning the fingerprint sensor to beneath the dual camera arrangement.
Sadly, beauty doesn8217;t mean unbreakable though and if you want to keep your Note 9 looking as good as new, you8217;ll probably need to consider a case. Here are some if the best we8217;ve found so far, but keep checking back as we will add more as we find them.
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specs, release date and features
Unsurprisingly, Samsung offers its own official cases for the Galaxy Note 9, just as Apple does for its devices. There are six to choose from, from an LED view cover, to a leather wallet cover.
The Clear View Standing Cover offers all-round protection for your Galaxy Note 9, whilst doubling up as a stand. It has three optimal angles so you can choose the right position, whether you8217;re taking a selfie or watching a movie. You8217;ll also be able to take calls and check notifications without having to open the cover. It comes in Black, Brown, Blue and Violet colour options.
The Samsung LED View Cover is similar to the Clear View option above, showing select information without requiring you to open the case. Information is displayed via LEDs and you can personalise it with some fun icons. Like the Clear View cover, it too offers all round protection and it has a card holder inside too. The LED View Cover is also available in Black, Brown, Blue and Violet colour options.
The Leather Wallet Cover has has been made with genuine Italian calf leather and it features a microfibre lining to protect your Note 9. There is an interior card pocket inside and the Leather Wallet Cover comes in Black, Brown and Red colour options.
The Protective Standing Cover has been drop-tested to offer military grade protection. There is a kickstand to hold your Note 9 at a comfortable viewing angle, without obstructing the Infinity Display, and you can still use a wireless charger. It comes in Black and Silver colour options.
The Soft Touch Cover is designed to add a soft feel and comfortable grip to your Note 9. The soft material provides protection from knocks and scratches while the microfibre lining aims to help prevent wear and tear. It comes in Black, Blue, White and Violet colour options.
The Clear Cover is all about offering protection without covering too much of the Galaxy Note 98217;s design. The Clear Cover8217;s transparency and slim profile add protection while maintaining its style, allowing you to see that gorgeous Metallic Copper finish (if you8217;re lucky enough to be in a country that gets that model).
Spigen offers a couple of different cases for the Note 9, including a rugged option with shock absorption and a slimmer option for showing off the phone8217;s design.
The Liquid Crystal case from Spigen features precise cutouts and tactile buttons, whilst also offering a transparent back so the Note 98217;s design can be seen. It is made from lightweight and flexible materials and it comes in Crystal Clear only.
