A new model of the Galaxy Note, of course, means a new line of cases to consider. For the business person who wants to use the tablet-phone hybrid, knowing which case best suits their needs can be a difficult decision. To help parse the already wide array of cases that have been released ahead of the Galaxy Note 9, Business News Daily dug in to find some of the most useful and elegant ones on the market.
The Ringke Fusion-X is a heavy-duty case for anyone wanting to ensure their Galaxy Note9 will be protected from any kind of damage, even that from serious falls. This case features an impact-resistant back bumper that absorbs the shock of any drop. It also lifts the display when placed face down, effectively protecting the screen from any scratches or damage.
For all its heavy-duty design, the Ringke Fusion-X isn't overly bulky and retains a manageable shape, an important feature for a large phone like the Galaxy Note 9. It is available for $13.99 on Amazon.
