Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are now official and with a March 11 launch date coming up fast, it’s time to check out what cases and accessories you’ll be getting for your new phone.
The Samsung website has updated with a list of accessories offering a brief description and pictures, but unfortunately no pricing. There was a leak of pricing for accessories prior to the launch. so it may be good to check that out for at least indicative pricing.
Starting at the top, Samsung will be offering cases, lots and lots of cases. First case is the LED View Cover, which Samsung says
Next up, Samsung has their Clear View Cover, which they describe as:
The Samsung S View cover makes a return in the latest release, with the familiar window that should take maximum advantage of the Always On display. Samsung describes the case thusly
For those wanting a more premium look, the Leather Cover should scratch that itch.
While it doesn’t appear to be leather, the Flip Wallet offers a lot of functionality and with Samsung (and Android Pay) possibly launching soon, the need for a wallet could soon be gone. Slip your license in and you’re good to go.
Lastly, Samsung has the minimalist Clear Cover which should give you some protection for your phone while still showing the design of the phone off to your friends.
Into the more interesting accessories, Samsung has brought the Keyboard cover to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. We first saw the Keyboard cover on the Note 5/Galaxy S6 Edge+ launch, but the cover itself never arrived in Australia, hopefully this one does and we can finally try it out.
Wireless charging has been a big feature on the Galaxy S line since the S6 hit the market, this year Samsung has improved the wireless charger allowing it to be flipped upright so you can see the screen.
Of course if you can’t get to a charger it’s good to have a backup. Samsung is offering two options this year, the Battery pack, which comes in two sizes – 10200mAh and 5100mAh.
Finally, the Battery backpack is real and it looks useful. It’s designed specifically for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
We’ll know more about exactly which accessories will arrive at launch in Australia in the coming weeks when Samsung hosts their Australian launch. You can view all the accessories on the Samsung Australia site right now, so head over and see what you like.
