Six of the best cases for your Galaxy S9+

Samsung’s Galaxy S9+ is the larger, more expensive sibling to the regular Galaxy S9, boasting a bigger display, a higher capacity battery, extra storage options, a second rear camera sensor, and a more substantial price tag. Despite those differences, the two phones have a lot in common, with the glass front and back panels the most noticeable. With so much glass on display, you may want to wrap Samsung’s newest flagship in a case to protect it against mishaps. Join us after the break to check out our best case guide for the Galaxy S9+.

Samsung LED Wallet Cover

As you might expect, Samsung has produced a bunch of cases for the Galaxy S9+, the pick of which is the LED Wallet Cover that protects the front and rear of the handset while allowing the user to store a bank or ID card in the inside of the front flap. Another feature worth noting is the ability to view LED notifications when the front flap is closed by simply pressing the power button. Available in Black, Blue, and Violet, you can grab the LED Wallet Cover directly from Samsung for $64.99.
