Along with the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has released a whole heap of accessories for the phone which predictably includes a lot of different style cases – and the DeX desktop dock.
We’ve pretty much seen all these before, but it’s good to see what’s available. There’s no pricing for the cases as yet, but we should see more information about these in the days to come.
Clear View Standing Cover
The case appears to be available in the standard Black, Gold, Blue and Orchid Grey.
LED View Cover
This one is another older case which has been re-vamped for the Note 8, you can see your details through the case. Here’s the description:
This looks like a premium cover, though it’s suede-like and not suede so you’re safe. The washability of the case is a plus at least from my previous cases getting filthy. The description for the Alcantara reads:
The Alcantara is washable and comes with the distinction of offering a larger array of colour options including a lovely green.
Samsung’s suction cup attaching cover they introduced for the Galaxy S8/S8+ is back. The cover comes in two pieces and protects the corners of your Note 8 while remaining fairly minimal. The description:
There are only three colour options for the 2 piece cover which may make for awkward colour combinations if you buy the Gold Note 8.
Protective Standing Cover
If you’re a clumsy oaf like myself, the Protective Standing Cover which is certified MIL-STD-810G-516.7 compliant is the one you’ll want. The downside to this cover is you’ll need to take it off to wirelessly charge your phone, but it’s going to be well protected.
The phone comes in Black and Blue only, so again, Gold Note 8 customers get a bit done over here.
Let’s face it, some people buy phones because of how they look and hiding that behind a clunky cover isn’t ideal. The Clear Cover case lets you show off your phone while still maintaining some basic protection.
Wireless Charger Convertible
With Wireless charging a big dot point in the Note 8’s favour for many people, you’ll want a good charger and the Samsung branded wireless charger will let you charge your phone fast, in whatever orientation you want to.
The charger comes in Black or ‘Couch Brown’, so pick your poison.
Finding a USB-C battery bank can be hard in Australia but Samsung has them. It’s 5,100mAh in size so only really good for a top-up, but we’re hoping the battery life on the Note 8 will be pretty good anyway – but we’ll wait for reviews to find out.
We’ll be keen to check out the cases and other accessories at the local launch here in Australia in the next couple of weeks. The phone is up for pre-order from August 25th from most carriers and retailers and you can find out more on your favourite outlet here on our Galaxy Note 8 buying guide.
