Samsung is announcing the Galaxy Note9 tomorrow at a special event in New York. We’ve heard a lot about the phone - its prices in Europe, and in the Asia-Pacific region; about the S Pen and its Bluetooth connectivity, and about the camera with the variable aperture from f/1.5 to f/2.4. We might’ve wrapped the story so far in a neat Sunday read, but we just got some new info in our mailbox.
The UK accessory retailer MobileFun is now offering official cases from Samsung, Olixar, and other for the upcoming phablet. The listings include press images of the actual phone, confirming the dual camera setup and the fingerprint scanner position below it. There will also be a Bixby button, 3.5 mm audio jack and a tall Infinity Display.
Samsung will offer once again plenty of various cases. There are silicone covers and Clear View Standing cases for the back panel in all the colors. There are also LED and leather flip colors, including a fancy red case. The Korean company is also offering extra tough protection that should keep the massive 6.4” phone intact.
Olixar, on other hand, is more into FlexiShield cases for the back panel. Next to the transparent variant we also see Solid Black, Aquamarine Blue and really saturated version of Purple. There is also a wallet stand case if you are that kind of person that keeps all the valuables like cards, money, and phone at one place.
Prices of the cases range from €6 to almost €60 and there are some more manufacturers like UAG and Obliq, but sadly we are yet to see photos of them. Interestingly enough, you can order and receive them in no more than 5 days, meaning you might get your case before you get your actual phone, expected to start shipping two weeks after tomorrow’s launch.
