A couple of third-party protective cases seemingly designed specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus emerged recently on Amazon Spain, alongside a price tag of €8.99. The cases seem to follow the expected design for both models and lend more credibility to the idea that the smaller variant will carry a single main camera, whereas the larger Plus model will employ a dual camera setup. Interestingly enough, the cases already seem to be in stock, so, in theory at least, they should match the exact dimensions of the actual real products.
The cases appear to have been manufactured from silicon though they also seem to feature a large leather pad covering most of the rear panel. There are cutouts for the fingerprint scanner, cameras, and LED modules for each specific model, and the renders reconfirm that only the larger Galaxy S9 Plus should adopt a dual camera configuration. The sensor’s capabilities are largely unknown but it’s worth noting that Samsung recently trademarked the slogan “The Camera. Reimagined.” with the Korean Intellectual Property Office, suggesting that even though the Samsung Galaxy S9 might rely on a single sensor, it could still offer advanced camera capabilities presumably backed up by AI. Either way, for readers who may be interested in this early product, the protective cases at hand seem to be available in four colors including blue, black, gray, and red, and each version carries a price tag of €8.99 following a €6.00 discount.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 series is expected to be officially announced at Mobile World Congress in February, and recent reports suggest that the lineup will hit the shelves beginning with March. Spec-wise, most previous leaks revealed that the smaller Galaxy S9 will carry a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440, whereas the Galaxy S9 Plus will employ the same pixel count on a larger 6.2-inch panel. The series is expected to make use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset in some regions including the US, while the international models are likely to rely on an in-house Exynos SoC, most likely the new Exynos 9810 featuring four custom CPU cores clocked at 2.9GHz along with four ARM Cortex-A55 cores operating at a frequency of 1.9GHz, and a Mali-G72 MP18 (18-core) graphics chip.
