With the Galaxy S9 and its bigger sibling the S9+ announced during MWC 2018 last month, its arrival worldwide is awaited. Getting the latest flagship models from Samsung is not just about indulging in the sweetness of Android 8.0 Oreo in a premium package, but also keeping the smartphones safe during use. To ensure a better overall user experience, Samsung has announced the official accessories and cases for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ accessories listed

Pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have already started in the United States and India is not far behind with the smartphones launching on March 6th.

To coincide with the roll out of the smartphones, Samsung has announced accessories for the flagship siblings such as cases, a pad that allows users to view the screen of the phone on a larger display and wireless chargers.

Clear, LED, silicone and Alcantara covers

Users gravitate towards cases as they protect smartphones while keeping the design largely visible. Basic covers from Samsung fill this slot perfectly with the Clear Cover folding over the front, allowing a view of the always-on-display, and helpfully also transforming into a stand. Silicon covers that fit over the rear of the phone are also available and these allow for its killer curved screen to remain visible while being protected.

The LED Cover is designed to fold over the front of the phone and allows the user to read notifications, while the Alcantara Cover has a soft texture, superior grip and is reminiscent of the material used in the interior of high-end cars.

Protective and textured covers

With an MIL-STD-810G-516.7 rating, the Protective Standing Cover from Samsung ensures that the smartphones are not damaged if dropped.

while a kickstand at the rear can be detached to prop the case up for easier viewing in landscape mode. A Hyperknit Textured Cover provides enhanced grip to users and has a lightweight look and feel.

DeX pad and wireless chargers

Available for use with the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ is a DeX Pad that converts the smartphone into a touchpad and connects to a monitor via a HDMI cable.

It allows users to take advantage of a larger screen to comfortably view photos or shop on the Internet. Wireless chargers are a must have for many Galaxy flagship users and Samsung has kept them in mind providing a Charger Stand.

The stand keeps the phone positioned just right so that the user can continue using the screen as it charges. Perfect for the office is a Convertible Charger that functions as a pad to charge the smartphone when it is flat, and it transforms into a stand to provide an optimal viewing angle.

Samsung has also kept on-the-go users in mind and provided a portable 5100mAh capacity Battery Pack, which rounds off the official accessories list.
