We’re just a week away from seeing exactly what Samsung’s been working on for the past year – the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are expected to be unveiled ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next Sunday, and of course TechRadar will be there to bring you the news as soon as it breaks.
In the meantime, how about some official Galaxy S9 covers? German site WinFuture has spotted some cases on the web, and they introduce two new styles that we haven’t seen for the Galaxy flagships before: Hyperknit and Protective Standing Cover.
Hyperknit is apparently a woven fabric similar to that used in sports clothing, so if you ever wanted to kit out your phone like an athlete, you’ll soon get a chance. The Protective Standing Cover, meanwhile, is already available for the Galaxy Note 8 but now comes to the smaller phones too, offering extra protection and a kickstand.
Alongside those two new arrivals we’ve got the usual suspects here as well, including covers made from silicone and alcantara, and a Clear View Standing Cover (so you can use your phone as an alarm clock) and an LED View Cover (with an integrated LED display, as the name suggests).
In other words, however you like to wrap up your phone, you’ll be well covered by the official case offerings that Samsung has got lined up, not to mention all the third-party options that other case makers will no doubt be launching soon.
As for the phones themselves, we’re expecting upgraded internals, a dual-lens camera on the back of the Plus model, better low light camera performance, even smaller bezels, and a headphone jack, though this is all yet to be confirmed by Samsung. In just a week’s time everything will be revealed.
