Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ launched with a collection of uniquely designed accessories that allow users to protect their phones in style. 2017’s accessory lineup includes a variety of chic yet functional covers crafted from premium, textured materials with a variety of colors, along with new wired & wireless charging devices.
Enhanced Case Lineup Adds Functionality and Personalization
Samsung’s diverse case and cover offerings merge protection and style, adding greater personalization through refined new materials.
The all-new Alcantara Covers are fashioned from genuine Alcantara – a material oft used in the automotive, fashion and design industries for its elegance, comfort and practicality. Alcantara cases offer durable, suede-like looks with a texture that’s soft to the touch. Also new for 2017 are the silky matte Silicone Covers that offer sleek, lightweight protection in several vivid colors that cater to modern millennials’ style preferences.
The Clear View Standing Cover and LED View Cover for the Galaxy S8 are both covers that allow users to swipe to control calls, music and more, without having to open it up. The dedicated set of theme curations and designs, including exclusive backgrounds and apps that come along with the cases, offer further opportunities for users to personalize their phones.
The translucent matte Clear View Standing Cover also doubles as a kickstand that props the device up into a widescreen position, providing optimized content viewing on the go. LED View Cover displays pertinent information through 54, customizable LED notifications, allowing users to get the information they need with just a glance.
Other new covers include the 2Piece Cover and the re-designed Keyboard Coverfor the Galaxy S8. The 2Piece Cover accentuates the aesthetic exterior of the Galaxy S8 with its unique, two-piece nature, and also offers better grip and protection. The color options range from bold, dual-color combinations to more minimalistic, single-tone designs. The Keyboard Cover requires no charging and features a detachable QWERTY keyboard that automatically optimizes the screen ratio when snapped on. Powered by Galaxy S8’s extended Infinity display, the Keyboard Cover offers a convenient mobile typing experience.
Design Through Collaboration
Samsung also teamed up with several prominent brands and designers to bring users evermore ways to express their personal style with their phones. A sampling of these collaborations include the Kate Spade NY Liquid Glitter Case, Adidas Performance Arm Band and the TUMI Leather CoMold Case.
The Kate Spade NY Liquid Glitter Case combines unique personal style with a playful sophistication, thanks to the glitter that floats around inside the case, resembling a snow globe. The Adidas Performance Arm Band, with its unique lightweight design, provides adjustable protection for the Galaxy S8 so users can stay focused on their run. The TUMI Leather CoMold Case, available in black and red, features a slim, premium quality coated canvas with raised edges to provide additional drop protection for your S8 or S8+.
Faster Charging on the Move
Crafted from soft, premium materials coupled with a minimalist touch that’s designed to complement its surroundings, Samsung’s Wireless Charger Convertible can do more than simply charge a Qi wireless charging enabled device* on its pad – it also doubles as a convenient stand for the phone so users can comfortably view content on their device while it charges in the background.
Samsung’s new 5100mAh Battery Packs sport a soft exterior texture with round curves, and now feature a convenient finger strap for increased portability. With fast-charge capabilities, a handy indicator light and refined styling, Samsung battery packs are the perfect companion to any smartphone. The packs are compatible with both USB Type-C and micro USB, thanks to its combo-cable companion that comes included.
