Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone at an event on 9 August. The new device joins the Galaxy S9 and S9+ in the company's 2018 line-up of flagship smartphones, adding an S Pen to the party.

It's a fabulous looking device that refines the Note 8's design, continuing with a premium glass body with the metal core but repositioning the fingerprint sensor to beneath the dual camera arrangement.

Sadly, beauty doesn't mean unbreakable though and if you want to keep your Note 9 looking as good as new, you'll probably need to consider a case. Here are some if the best we've found so far, but keep checking back as we will add more as we find them.

Samsung

Unsurprisingly, Samsung offers its own official cases for the Galaxy Note 9, just as Apple does for its devices. There are six to choose from, from an LED view cover, to a leather wallet cover.

Clear View Standing Cover

The Clear View Standing Cover offers all-round protection for your Galaxy Note 9, whilst doubling up as a stand. It has three optimal angles so you can choose the right position, whether you're taking a selfie or watching a movie. You'll also be able to take calls and check notifications without having to open the cover. It comes in Black, Brown, Blue and Violet colour options.

The LED View Cover is also available in Black, Brown, Blue and Violet colour options.

Clear Cover

The Clear Cover is all about offering protection without covering too much of the Galaxy Note 9's design. The Clear Cover's transparency and slim profile add protection while maintaining its style, allowing you to see that gorgeous Metallic Copper finish (if you're lucky enough to be in a country that gets that model).
