Wednesday can’t come soon enough – the Samsung Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra will be announced next week and we’re as excited as you are. While we’re counting the days until the Unpacked event, a set of official renders for the phones’ accessory cases has come our way, courtesy of Roland Quandt.
What we believe is a non-exhaustive assortment of cases includes a plain leather cover for the back and sides – we can tell it’s not silicone from the texture when looking up close.
The more interesting ones are the two types of flip covers. The first one is looking a lot like the previously leaked Smart Clear View Cover with antimicrobial coating (or the S-View Flip cover, if we’re to borrow the terminology from the Galaxy S20 accessories). It has a transparent strip that shows the display underneath and lets you operate a dedicated interface with the flip cover closed. There’s also a ‘regular’ flip cover with no S-View capability, but a credit/debit/ID card pocket instead.
The cases come in colors to match the phones’ colorways, though we’re not seeing a white one for the Mystic White Ultra. In any case, there will be more colors and more types of cases for sure – the soft silicone one has been a staple of Galaxy protection in the office and we can’t imagine Samsung dropping it. Dare we dream of the return of the Alcantara cases from S8 and S9 times that only existed for the Note8 generation?
