The best official Galaxy S21 Plus cases:
Editor’s note: We’ll be sure to add to this list of the best official Galaxy S21 Plus cases if new options launch.
Samsung’s simple silicone cover is one of the most basic official cases you can get for your Galaxy S21 Plus. It’s a single, flexible piece of material that you can apply or remove in seconds. You can also choose from a few different shades to match your phone, including violet, pink, gray, and black. The silicone cover also covers part of the Galaxy S21 Plus’ large camera housing to protect it from harm.
If you’d rather show off your Galaxy S21 Plus than cover it in silicone, this clear case is your best official option. It’s another TPU case, though it pairs a crystal clear back panel with a matte bumper around the edges. You can choose from either black or white finishes, and the textured pattern should keep your phone snug in your hand. Samsung also added a small loop on the back, presumably for a lanyard.
Leather Galaxy S21 Plus official case
Our next case adds a premium feel to your Galaxy S21 Plus in the form of an official leather cover. Available in either black or brown, this case adds some solid protection without the bulk you might expect from a durable case. Samsung’s official leather case also features small aluminum accents that add even more of a premium touch and contrast with the overall construction.
Samsung introduced its Kvadrat case, made with recycled materials, a few years back. Now, the bumper is back with a few new shades to match the color palette of the Galaxy S21 family. You can grab yours now in either Mint Gray or violet. If your Kvadrat case should get damaged, the entire unit is compostable so you don’t have to create extra waste. However, the soft material may not stand up to scratches well.
Clear Galaxy S21 Plus official case with kickstand
The next official Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus case worth considering is this clear option. It’s more flexible than the previous clear option in that it includes a metal clear case for hands-free streaming. Better yet, the kickstand works either vertically or horizontally, so there are no limits to what you can stream.
S-View flip cover
Samsung’s S-View flip cover is a great option if you want to protect your Galaxy S21 Plus from all angles. It relies on a tough bumper and a folding folio cover that features a clear strip for your notifications. You can easily check your texts and emails without ever unlocking your device and answer calls with the cover closed. Like the other official cases, the S-View flip cover comes in four shades to match your phone.
LED wallet cover
We’ve already mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is a big, beefy device. You might be looking for a way to free up some other pocket space, and that means leaving your wallet behind. This LED wallet cover is an easy way to do just that, though you won’t find a cash pocket built-in. It only features one card slot, though it appears to expand and hold more than one credit card for your convenience.

The last official Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus case on our list is also the most durable. This rugged cover offers some serious protection with textured side rails and a series of raised ridges on the back panel. You can get the case in black or silver, and the rugged cover features a folding kickstand for hands-free streaming. You can adjust the kickstand between two different positions too for the perfect viewing angle.
