The Galaxy Note 9 is now available, and Samsung's flagship phablet comes with some exciting new features. With a 4000mAh battery, up to 512 GB in built-in storage, and an improved S Pen with Bluetooth capabilities, the Galaxy Note 9 is the top phone currently on the market.
Along with the impressive components comes a price tag to match; the Galaxy Note 9 is billed at $999 for the 128GB / 6GB RAM model, and the amount jumps to $1250 with 512GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. The Galaxy Note 9 is clearly an investment, and you're going to want to protect it with a solid case.
Luckily, Spigen has a complete line of cases at the ready with protection for every situation. Take a look at some of the best cases available for Samsung's latest smartphone below.
Built for adventure
The Galaxy Note 9's revamped S Pen is a game-changer for the self-portrait taker. The stylus doubles as a remote camera shutter, so you can take photos from up to 30 feet away. If you added a tripod to the mix, then the possibility for selfies are endless.
If this sounds appealing to you but you're more clumsy than you'd like to admit, Spigen's Tough Armor is just what you need. The case has a reinforced kickstand built into the back that can act as a tripod to your Note 9 camera. It's constructed with two protective layers to be resilient and damage-resistant. Combine that with Spigen's patented Air Cushion Technology (special pockets of air specifically designed for enhanced drop-protection) built in every corner, and you have a mil-grade certified case that will protect your expensive phone from extreme drops.
You don't have to worry about dropping your phone when you've stopped to take a selfie on your favorite hiking trail anymore.
When you are trying to provide bolstered protection to the Galaxy Note 9 but you hate bulging pockets, the Slim Armor CS is the way to go. Like most cases in the Armor series, the Slim Armor CS combines a hard outer shell with a soft inner layer to provide maximum protection in a slim frame. But as an added benefit, the back of the Slim Armor CS slides open to reveal space to store up to two cards and a wad of cash. This way, you can ditch the wallet and have the essentials with you at all times.
The Galaxy Note 9 is big enough as it is. Might as well cut down on bulky pockets with the Slim Armor CS.
Aesthetics with durability
With a huge 6.4-inch display and a massive battery of 4,000mAh, one thing is for certain; you will be watching a lot of videos on the Note 9. This is where the Ultra Hybrid S comes in handy. The case is clear, so you can show off the sleek design of the device without getting in the way of the infinity display. A kickstand is built into the back of the case for hands-free viewing, so you can conveniently watch your favorite content for hours.
Top it all off with the fact that the case utilizes hybrid technology by combining a shock-absorbent TPU bumper with a durable polycarbonate back, and you have a case that offers a good amount of protection in a single layer.
The Galaxy Note 9 is constructed with an aluminum frame topped with Gorilla Glass on the front and back. This makes the device sleek and shiny, but also slippery and a smudge-magnet. This is where the Neo Hybrid comes in.
Sporting a herringbone pattern, the stylish design also gives the Note 9 a bit of texture. The flexible body of the Neo Hybrid is supported by a durable bumper frame, which keeps the case ergonomic while also providing mil-grade certified protection. Plus, the matte finish is resistant to fingerprints, so you can keep the device looking sleek and shiny while preventing those annoying smudges.
For the Minimalist
The Liquid Air is a thin case, yet it offers a deceptive amount of protection. It's made with a single layer of flexible TPU for enhanced shock-absorbance and is mil-grade certified with Spigen's patented Air Cushion Technology built into every corner.
The Liquid Air has a triangular geometric pattern carved into the back of the case for a modern look that doubles as an enhanced grip. You will have no issues holding the Note 9 with one hand, so that the other is free to utilize the many features of the Bluetooth-enabled S Pen.
It's no secret the Note 9 is a large phone. With all the goodies built into the device (expandable microSD storage, two 12-megapixel cameras with dual-aperture, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, just to name a few) it only makes sense that the phablet is slightly wider than last year's model.
With that being said, Spigen's Thin Fit is the perfect addition for the consumer that doesn't want to add bulk to the Note 9. Made from a thin layer of polycarbonate, the Thin Fit offers a minimal look that also prevents scratches on your device. Another benefit is the precise openings and cutouts, so you will be pressing on the device's original buttons instead of bulky rubber fittings. You may even forget that you have a case on with how snug the Thin Fit is.
Top it off with a screen protector
After finding the right case for you, keep the 6.4-inch infinity screen covered with the NeoFlex Screen Protector. Compatible with all Spigen cases, the NeoFlex deters scratches and fingerprints with its self-healing capabilities. Besides, the last thing you want to see on the Super AMOLED Quad HD+ screen are scuffs and scrapes.
Here's a solid choice for those who highly value fashion. Ciel by CYRILL is a new luxurious phone case brand that designs each case with current trends and styles in mind. The brand is backed by Spigen, assuring quality and protection for the new amazing device. This time Ciel by CYRILL has released two collection lines for the Galaxy Note 9: their signature line Colene, and their newly launched line Cecile. Each collection features distinct gold accents that highlights any outfit or look. To explore all the options, visit the collection on Amazon.
