Best Leather Cases for Galaxy S9 and S9+ in 2022
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are premium phones that deserve a premium case to keep them safe. And nothing screams "premium" like leather, am I right? Leather cases also tend to be more functional, often with a folio design and built-in card slots for an all-in-one solution for your phone and wallet — but even if you don't dig that style, there are still great leather cases available! Let's dive in!
Made with genuine European leather
Not all leather cases are made with genuine leather, but Snakehive's are. These cases are available in seven colors and will age quite nicely over time. Every case is handstitched and features the card slots and features you'd expect from a folio wallet case.
A functional wallet case
When you think of leather cases, you likely imagine a folio wallet case as it's the most common style. Consider this option from Case Mate, which features a classic folio design with multiple card slots, a see-through slot for your ID, and a side pocket for storing cash. The integrated case holds your phone in place while the front flap keeps your display protected when closed.
Choose your color style
Leather cases are all about style, right? So why settle for a boring black leather case when you can choose between a bunch of cool color combinations? Check out these wallet cases from Design Skin that are available in nine different styles. Each case has three card slots on the inside along with a side pocket for storing cash or receipts, and every case is handcrafted with soft genuine leather that you will absolutely love.
This PU leather wallet case might just be the perfect case for your Galaxy S9 and S9+, period. It's a folio wallet with three card slots and a cash pocket, with a magnetic closure and a cover that folds into a kickstand. But the inner bumper case detaches from its magnetic hold, so it ends up being just a great leather and TPU rubber case for when you don't need your wallet. Comes in three colors.
Simple and elegant
Shieldon's wallet cases for Galaxy S9 and S9+ have a hidden magnetic closure, giving them a sleek look, and they come in black, red, or a very alluring blue. The inner bumper is made of flexible TPU rubber, which protects your phone from drops and bumps. There are three card slots and a cash pocket inside the front cover.
Leather wallet without the folio
Poetic is known for making some pretty bold design decisions for their cases, and it certainly came up with something pretty unique with the Nubuck case. This unique looking case combines a sturdy TPU shell with perforated PU leather around the bottom half of the case, which holds the card slot that can store up to two cards at a time.
Leather cases add a touch of class to any phone

When you're buying a premium flagship like the Galaxy S9, it just makes sense to go with a premium case — and leather is as posh and luxurious as it gets.
There's a lot of crossover between leather cases and wallet cases, but that's just because it's one of the smartest ways to incorporate leather into a phone case. I'd recommend the Snakehive Folio Wallet Case because it's made with genuine leather and offers sound protection for your phone while also letting you keep your most important cards and some cash with you all in one place. If you want a leather case without the front cover, consider the Poetic Nubuck Credit Card Slot Case.
If, however, you find that a leather case isn't for you, there are still plenty of other cases available for both the Galaxy S9and the S9+. You'll be sure to find something that fits your needs.
