Reports have been started emerging lately regarding the Samsung Galaxy S9 flagships. A couple of days ago a Romanian retailer apparently listed the official Galaxy S9 covers. The listing revealed two new cover styles that have not been offered by Samsung before for the Galaxy S series. The images of the official Samsung Galaxy S9 covers have been surfaced online and it confirms that the two new styles that they offer are Hyperknit and Protective Standing Cover.
The images of Galaxy S9 covers reveal what the company will offer. To start with the Clearview standing cover, many of the users might have been familiar with this cover as it is available for Galaxy S8. It is a flip cover that has a clear view on the front, this can be used to set up the device as an alarm clock on the nightstand or as a clock on a desk.
LED view cover was introduced with Galaxy S7 a couple of years ago and supposedly Samsung decided to bring it back with S9 and S9 plus. It has a hidden LED display on the front that shows the time, notification, messages, battery level and alarm.
Samsung is also bringing back it’s Alcantara cover which was introduced with Galaxy S8. Samsung is bringing back Alcantara for the flagship duo. It is a soft microfibre fabric which feels premium to the touch; it also has a built-in NFC chip. Samsung’s silicone cover has long been available and the company plans to launch it for the upcoming devices as well.
Of the two new styles, Hyperknit is one of them. It’s a woven fabric that’s normally used for sports clothing. It is said to be a lightweight and sporty cover and will be available for both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+.
The protective standing cover is the next new reveal which Samsung is to debut with its new flagships. It offers “ultimate device protection”, with MIL-STD-810G-516.7 certification. The cover is tested against a subset of 10 specific conditions which include extreme temperatures, dust, and vibration, drops from 4.9 feet and others. It has a built-in kickstand for landscape viewing just like the Clearview stand cover.
Along with these covers, Samsung is also expected to launch other accessories for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ which it’s going to reveal at the event on February 25. It is expected that the cover will cost up to $60.
