Samsung Galaxy S7 LED Flip Cover case

Mobile World Congress

If there's one thing you can count on with any Galaxy phone launch, it's flip-style covers. One of the case staples is the LED Flip Cover, which we've seen a version of for prior Galaxy phones and is now available for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

The leather-like flip case snaps snugly around the back of the phone and flips over onto the front, covering up the volume buttons but giving you guidance as to where you can click to work them. Unlike its S-View cases the LED Flip Cover doesn't have any sort of window for you to see the display — it simply has an LED array in the top portion of the cover that can light up to display information. You can see things like the time, a battery charge indicator, volume control and select notifications.

Around the back this looks just like any of Samsung's other flip-style cases. It's a little plush and gives you a bit extra to hold the phone by, but honestly doesn't add so much to the phone that you feel like you're compromising on size to have the protection and extra features.

As you'd expect Samsung isn't announcing pricing as it'll differ between regions, but we think $40 is a good place to set your expectations here.
