Samsung just launched its flagship duo for 2018 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. While the Galaxy S9 isn’t much of a major upgrade from the last-gen Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S9 Plus with its dual cameras is a significant bump over the Galaxy S8 Plus. In keeping with the current trend with flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 Plus features a metal chassis sandwiched between Gorilla Glass on the front and back. The all-glass design not only makes the device a fingerprint magnet, but it also leaves it vulnerable to cracks and shatters even with the most delicate of drops.
If you’re planning on purchasing the Galaxy S9 Plus and don’t want to worry about shattering the beautiful curved glass, you’ll need to put a protective case on it. Here are the 12 best Galaxy S9 Plus cases and covers you can buy:
1. Samsung Clear View Standing Cover for S9 Plus
The first cover to make it to the list, and for good reason, is Samsung’s own official Clear View Standing Cover for the Galaxy S9 Plus. Being an official case from the company, you can rest assured about the fit and finish. Other than providing a layer of protection over your precious Galaxy S9 Plus, this particular case from Samsung will allow you to interact with your phone through the clear cover. The case even has fingerprint prevent coatings, so you don’t even have to worry about leaving smudges on the clear front. Additionally, the flip-case like design will allow you to use the case itself as a kickstand while watching videos on your phone. Samsung also has a bunch of other cases to offer which come with their own individual benefits. You can check out all the options in the link below.
