Planning to buy a Galaxy Note 9? You might want these leaked accessories too
- Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 accessories have reportedly leaked, including several cases.
- We also see a heavy-duty protective cover that’s tipped to have MIL-STD 810G certification.
- The new accessories join previously leaked peripherals, such as a new wireless charger.
We know an awful lot about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 already, owing to leaked renders, FCC filings, and other reports. The leak train hasn’t stopped just yet though, as WinFuture (translated version) has uncovered images of various accessories.
First up, we have the new S-Pen stylus, which seems to be available in various colors (from yellow to violet and black). The images also give us a good look at the stylus in general. It’s believed Samsung is switching to a Bluetooth-powered S-Pen that can be charged via the Note 9 itself.
The next accessory is a “clear view” flip cover, seen below, which also allows the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to be propped up for hands-free viewing. The front of the cover is transparent (hence “clear view”), allowing you to check your screen without actually opening the cover.
Like the idea of a flip cover but need something more durable? Then the protective standing cover (below) might be for you. WinFuture notes that this cover has MIL-STD 810G certification — it certainly looks the part — so it should withstand some abuse.
Then there’s the “LED view” cover, which was previously released for the likes of the Galaxy S9 and Note 8. This might be up your alley if you miss HTC’s Dot View cover, delivering an LED-style effect for your Note 9 screen. Finally, we have a no-frills silicone cover, wrapping a protective rim around your Note 9 but leaving the front exposed otherwise. Both accessories can be viewed below.
These new accessories are just the latest peripherals to be leaked ahead of the launch. We saw a “Wireless Charger Duo” surface earlier this week, allowing users to either charge two phones or a phone and a smartwatch on one pad.
At this stage, it seems like most of the Note 9’s secrets are out of the bag. We’re expecting a phone with an Exynos 9810 processor (or Snapdragon 845 in the U.S.), 6.38-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery. The phone is also set to pack two 12MP cameras on the rear, an 8MP selfie snapper, and an IP68 water/dust resistant design.
We’ll have to wait until August 9 for Samsung to reveal all, but previous leaks point to an August 24 release date. While it seems like virtually all the specs have been detailed, we’re likely to see a few more software features revealed at the event, such as DeX improvements and Bixby 2.0.
