The best Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cases:
Editor’s note: We will continue to update this list of the best cases for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra as more are released.
PHNX MNML case
Samsung poured hours of labor into every last inch of the Note 20 Ultra, and one of the best ways to show that off is with an ultra-thin PHNX MNML case. Available in clear, frosted white, frosted black, and matte black, the PHNX MNML case is just 0.35mm thin and is entirely free of branding. It won’t stand up to heavy-duty drops, but it should be able to handle some daily scuffs and scrapes. The case sells for $27, but you can get a 15% discount with code: 15AA.
Spigen Thin Fit
Spigen is the king of cases, and the Thin Fit is one of the thinnest hybrid options on the market. It’s a single-piece design with a TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel. The back panel also includes a magnet-friendly slot designed specifically to work with magnetic car phone holders. All four edges of your new phablet will stay safely protected thanks to smaller and more precise cutouts for ports and the S Pen.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid
It only makes sense to match an Ultra case with an Ultra phone, right? At least, that’s one reason to pick the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. It’s another durable option that makes the most of a TPU bumper and a polycarbonate back panel, but it’s fully transparent. There are so many luxurious details built into the Note 20 Ultra that it almost seems shameful to trap them behind an opaque case. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid uses precise cutouts to allow access to ports and tactile buttons make adjusting the volume a smooth process.
The next Galaxy Note 20 Ultra case on today’s roundup is yet another familiar face. Caseology’s Parallax design uses a textured triangular finish to enhance grip and add a unique style. The case is a MIL-STD 810G certified hybrid with a TPU shell and a rugged polycarbonate bumper. It’s easy to match the Parallax to your other devices, available in Aqua Green, burgundy, matte black, and Midnight Blue.
If you want a simple TPU bumper, the Spigen Rugged Armor is a perfect pick. At its core, it’s a matte black case, but the carbon fiber details add some luxury to the simplicity. While it’s not the toughest case around, the Rugged Armor handles drops well with its built-in Air Cushion technology. You can apply and remove Spigen’s Rugged Armor in just seconds, and it protects all of your Note 20 Ultra buttons with tactile covers.
Ringke’s Fusion-X is an excellent case if you want to show off your Note 20 Ultra without losing rugged hybrid protection. The Ringke Fusion-X features a unique geometric bumper which helps to set it apart from other basic bumpers. It pairs a crystal-clear back panel with a flexible TPU bumper, and a pair of QuikCatch holes allow you to attach a lanyard. If you don’t want a clear case, it’s also available in black camouflage.

Spigen Neo Hybrid
The Spigen Thin Fit is a great basic bumper, but many other Spigen options offer a bit more style for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. One such option is the Neo Hybrid — it’s slim and form-fitting with a black herringbone pattern and a contrasting bronze frame. As you’d expect with the Hybrid name, this is a dual-protection TPU and polycarbonate option that stands up to both drops and scratches without a second thought.
ESR metal kickstand case
ESR’s case offers crystal-clear protection and a heavy-duty kickstand that’s perfect for media streaming. You can prop your phone vertically or horizontally and get lost in your favorite shows. The case itself is made of a flexible TPU material that you can apply or remove in seconds, and it supports wireless charging easily. However, ESR recommends keeping the metal kickstand off of your charging pad.
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra isn’t exactly a pocket-friendly phone, so why not look for an option that frees up some of your other pockets too? The FYY wallet case does exactly that with three card slots and a large cash pocket for storage. It’s made of genuine leather with a TPU bumper to lock your phone in place, and it feels as good as it looks. The folding cover doubles as a kickstand to make hands-free streaming more comfortable.

Spigen Tough Armor
Most of the other Spigen options for the Note 20 Ultra are designed to protect with a slim footprint. The Tough Armor, on the other hand, is built for maximum protection. It may add a bit of bulk to your phone, but the two-piece hybrid design provides superior protection against drops and everyday scratches. Available in black and gunmetal, the Tough Armor has a kickstand that makes streaming comfortable and easy.
The UAG Plasma is one of the toughest cases around, with a solid polycarbonate back panel and thick TPU bumpers at the top and bottom. It’s a clear hybrid option, and it comes in both Ice and Ash to show off your Note 20 Ultra. UAG opted for a combination of air cushioning and an impact-absorbing honeycomb pattern just in case you drop your new phone. The Plasma is thin enough to support wireless charging as well.

Otterbox has been a top name in tough cases for as long as we’ve had smartphones. This latest version of the Defender is no exception, though it no longer includes a built-in screen protector. The Defender relies on a rough hybrid design, and it has a convenient belt holster as the case itself may prove too large to fit in your pocket. You can grab the Otterbox Defender in black, blue, or red.
You can also get 10% off site-wide, along with free shipping with code OTTER10 at otterbox.com. Some exclusions apply.
