A couple of months back, it was rumored that Samsung was going to launch a number of new official first party cases for its upcoming flagship smartphones. That list of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge accessories included a keyboard cover and the usual S View cover, as well as a ‘Glitter’ cover and a ‘Clear’ cover. If a recent leaked list is anything to go by, however, there could be many more to add to that list…
According to WinFuture‘s German retail sources, Samsung will also be releasing an ‘LED View Flip Cover’ in three colors for around 70 Euros (approx $75 USD). At that price, you’d expect it to have far more functionality than the S View Cover, perhaps similar to HTC’s Dot View case, with built-in LEDs for notification display.
Undoubtedly the most noteworthy case on the list is the rumored Backpack Case. It’s claimed to feature a 2,700mAh battery and will allegedly ship bundled with a wireless charging kit, all for 90 Euros ($98). It’s rumored Sammy will also release an ultra-rugged case option and, like Apple, an official leather cover.

If you’re absolutely convinced you’re going to buy the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, it might be worth noting that several cases have already shown up on Amazon and don’t cost anything near what the official Samsung ones will. Those include these Spigen options for just $15, which the manufacturer is planning to ship by March 1st.
As with any rumor or leak, nothing is official until Samsung says so. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Sammy expand its accessory line up as it sees its biggest competitor do the same. Considering how cheap they are to produce, there’s a real opportunity for increased profit margins with a decent selection of first party cases.
