Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ covers and cases surface online
The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ might still be a month or two ahead, but they already surfaced online in a set of images as official as they come. Sadly, these images do not show them naked but covered with a few Olixar protective cases and covers instead.
The Olixar accessories mentioned above reveal that the Galaxy S9 has a single camera on the back, while the larger Galaxy S9+ will launch featuring a dual main camera setup. A Bixby button is also visible. These are the cases already up for pre-order via the UK-based online store MobileFun and their prices:
- Olixar FlexiShield Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Gel Case (blue, orchid grey, solid black) - US$6.67
- Olixar Ultra-Thin Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Case (100% clear) - US$10.67
- Olixar X-Duo Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Case (carbon fiber gold, carbon fiber metallic grey, carbon fiber silver) - US$26.70
- Olixar X-Ranger Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Survival Case (marine blue, tactical black) - US$26.70
The most interesting case in the list above is the X-Ranger case, which features a handy kickstand and a dedicated storage compartment that can accommodate the included survival multi-tool or a credit card. Obviously, it is not as thin as its cheaper siblings, but it could save the phone and maybe its owner as well, depending on the situation.
