Why Choose Just One? Customers Can Purchase Flip Cover Bundles During Holiday Season

DALLAS — November 29, 2012 — Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) – the No.1 mobile phone provider in the United States1 – is giving U.S. Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III users the ability to customize Samsung’s newest iconic smartphones with its Protective Flip Cover, a unique case solution available in an array of vibrant colors. In addition, Samsung Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III owners will be able to purchase bundles of Protective Flip Covers in multiple colors at a discounted price.

Fashionable, Premium Design

Samsung’s unique Flip Cover design was introduced alongside the original Galaxy Note® and again with the Samsung Galaxy S III. Now, just in time for holiday shopping, the launch of the Galaxy Note II on five major carriers brings this premium accessory to users in seven stylish color options – Titanium Gray, Marble White, Light Blue, Pink, Mint, Lime Green, and Orange. With the option to purchase a bundle of Flip Covers in a variety pack of colors, Galaxy Note II customers can change Flip Covers to match any occasion or outfit, just like jewelry, hats, and other fashion accessories.

The Samsung Protective Flip Cover is a one-piece folding design with a stylish front cover and glossy snap-on back. While the front flap of the Flip Cover shields the 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED™ touchscreen display of the Galaxy Note II from pesky fingerprints, scratches, and dirt, the back of the accessory snaps on to replace the phone’s back battery cover. This distinctive design provides additional protection to the screen while retaining the slim profile of the Galaxy Note II. The Protective Flip Cover also enhances the overall look and feel of the Galaxy Note II with a design that perfectly complements the smartphone’s narrow form factor.

Practical for Everyday Use

In addition to protecting the screen when closed, there is no need to remove the Protective Flip Cover to access the phone’s side buttons or jacks, since the cover was designed never to interfere with normal phone functions. With the Flip Cover attached to the Galaxy Note II, all ports, buttons, and microphones are easily accessible, allowing the user to make phone calls and use the speaker phone even when the Flip Cover is closed.

Additionally, the fold over design of the Flip Cover offers privacy for users wanting to text or email discretely without the risk of wandering eyes nearby, while also improving screen viewing quality in bright sunlight by conveniently offering shade at a variety of angles.

    I’m getting one for my Note 2!

  • David M Whittley

    Avoid the white one. The inside cover gets very dirty very quickly. Other than that I quite like it.

  • MasterMuffin

    I thought these had been around for a long time?

    • th3

      This is a new type, without the glossy back cover, this is more matte and supposed to make scratches less visible. However im not sure if they have an NFC antenna, make sure to check before you buy, i have seen original samsung glossy Note 2 flip covers without a functional nfc antenna.

      • MasterMuffin

        okay, doesn’t really matter I just bought a nice case for my sgs3, should arrive in few days :)

  • David M Whittley

    I think that depends on where you live. @mastermuffin

    • MasterMuffin

      oh okay :)

  • $39.99 for a cover? I better buy a lighting connector.

  • tsw_gnaget

    i wasted my money on a flip cover. It realy takes away the ease of using the light-weight s3..

  • twisted247

    With the exception to the 4pack haven’t these been available in these colors for sometime now on the Samsung website? I know the red blue green and pink were.

  • TommyNYC

    $40 for a cover ? i think not.
    I’m more than happy with my TPU cover + screen protector that i got for $4 off eBay.

  • jace

    I got it from ebay just $8

  • s-am

    how to get the 49.99 price for two?

  • Angela

    I just ordered the two pack @ $39.99 (not including taxes) mint green & light blue. I read plenty of mixed reviews on these cases so I hope they are going to be functional and cute for the price. Geez.

    A tip for all Flip case owners: Check out Smart Screen Off! Close case = phone sleeps. Open case = phone wakes. Try the free version first. Works Great on my Galaxy Note II
