Along with the fans, companies that make smartphone accessories are also gearing up for the official announcement of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on February 25 in Barcelona. It is to be expected as the Galaxy flagship phones are only next to the iPhones when it comes to generating business opportunities for third-party accessories.
Even before the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ are officially announced or available in the market, DBrand has announced today a variety of skins for the upcoming devices. DBrand did the same thing last year as well when they launched skins for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ on March 10, before the Galaxy S8 unveiling on March 29. For those who are not aware of DBrand, it’s a Canadian company which makes skins for a wide variety of electronic devices. It is one of the more popular options out there in the market.
Adds more credibility to the leaked renders
A well-known smartphone accessory brand launching its skins for the Galaxy S9 duo adds more credibility to the recent leaks about the Galaxy S9 design. Dbrand is launching its skins for the same Galaxy S9 design we have seen in the recently leaked renders. From the looks of it, it seems there won’t be any design surprises left for the Galaxy S9 pair, and the leaked renders may well be the real deal.

As usual, DBrand is offering plenty of colors and textures to choose from. While the company’s claims about these skins adding more protection to devices are questionable, there is no denying that these skins add a bit of character and grip to otherwise slippery slabs of glass, without any of the bulk associated with cases.
