The best official Galaxy S21 Ultra cases:

Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to add to this list of the best official Galaxy S21 Ultra cases if new options launch.

Silicone official Galaxy S21 Ultra cover

The first official case for Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra that you should consider is also one of the simplest. This silicone cover consists of one flexible piece of material and it comes in four different colors to match your new device. It’s not the most durable option on the market, though Samsung’s silicone cover should do well against drops. It also covers a bit of the large camera housing for an even cleaner look.

Clear cover

This clear cover is another simple case for your Galaxy S21 Ultra, though it adds a few extra features for convenience. The back panel is clear, but you can choose either a matte black bumper around the edges or a white one. Samsung added a small loop as well, which looks like it should fit a lanyard for hands-free carrying. The matte bumper is textured so you should have no problem keeping a tight grip on your premium device.

S-View flip cover

Our next case is one of your best options if you want full 360-degree protection. The S-View flip cover includes a durable bumper on the back panel with a folding cover on the front. You can check your notifications without opening the cover thanks to the transparent strip. Samsung’s S-View flip cover is also the way to go if you plan to use an S-Pen with your Galaxy S21 Ultra — there’s a special version of the case built with a storage slot for your convenience.

Leather official Galaxy S21 Ultra cover

We’re back to the simple designs, but this leather option adds a premium feel to your Galaxy S21 Ultra. It comes in black and brown, and each version features aluminum accents that help to complement the leather finish. The interior of this leather case is lined with soft microfiber, so your new phone should stay in top shape for years to come. However, there’s not much of a front lip to protect your 6.8-inch display, so be sure to add a screen protector.

LED wallet

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra is among the OEM’s largest phones ever at 6.8 inches. If you want to add it to your pocket then you may need to clear out some other pocket space. This handy wallet case allows you to do just that with a single built-in card slot. Better yet, you can customize the LED panel on the front with unique caller ID reminders and check on some of your top notifications. Like most of Samsung’s first-party cases, the LED wallet comes in four colors.

Rugged cover

One last official Galaxy s21 Ultra case to consider is the rugged cover. It may be the bulkiest option on the list, but it also adds the greatest degree of protection. Samsung’s toughest case resembles a heavy-duty suitcase with its brushed metal finish and raised protective ridges. You can also pop the back panel into a kickstand to watch your favorite shoes from anywhere. The rugged cover comes in either black or silver.
