A set of Olixar cases for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ can be already pre-ordered from MobileFun, and the UK online store also mentioned a February 28 release date for these accessories.

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.

According to MobileFun, all these Olixar cases will begin shipping at the end of February. Until then, the Galaxy S9 handsets should hit the market as well, but if that does not happen, they should arrive in March, just like the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S8 families.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
