Samsung will be releasing several new cases and other accessories for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Here's a look at many of the new ones. Expect them to hit stores in late April and May after the new phones become available.
These AKG wired earphones, which will be included with the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, will also be sold separately for $100. The bundled buds don't include a carrying case, but you get one if you purchase the headphones separately.
The Clear View Standing Cover, which comes in a few translucent color options, is pretty slick. It retails for $60.

This new in-ear noise-canceling headphone will sell for $150. The sound is tuned by AKG engineers.
The noise-canceling circuitry is embedded in a little box that's integrated into the headphone. This is a wired headphone.
The DeX Station allows you to use your phone as a desktop computer, connecting it to a keyboard and monitor in desktop mode. It also wirelessly charges your phone. Price: $150.
It's unclear if this mobile printer will ever make it to the US market (it's available overseas). If it does, it'll cost around $100. You can wirelessly print to it simply by tapping it with your phone, using the Galaxy S8's NFC tap-to-pair technology.
This is a simple translucent case that comes in multiple color options and will cost a little less than $20.
The slick, high-tech Galaxy S8 LED View Cover will retail for $60.
The outside of the Alcantara is coated with a microsuede material that feels soft to the touch but also has a bit of grip to it. No word on the price of the cover but it's expected to sell for around $25 to $30.
The simple silicone cover will retail for $20.

The U Flex is Samsung's new neckband-style headphone. It'll retail for $70.
No word yet on how much this 5,100mAh battery pack will cost, but Samsung hopes to distinguish it from other battery packs with its built-in carrying handle.

Samsung will bring out a keyboard case for the Galaxy S8. Like the one for the Galaxy S7, this one will also list for $60 when it first launches (the one for the S7 is being discounted to $30 now).
Internally at Samsung this was known as the "bikini case." Its two pieces slip on and offer corner protection. If you're in the mood, you can go topless or bottomless. Price: around $20.
The Level Box Slim is a slim Bluetooth speaker that may or may not make it to the US market (it's being sold outside the US). If it does make it stateside, it'll cost around $100.
Samsung's Wireless Charger Convertible not only charges the S8 and S8 Plus, it converts into a stand. It'll retail for $70 and comes in a couple of different color options.
This is Samsung's existing Wireless Charger Stand. You can pick it up for around $30.
The new Gear 360 camera is set to ship in late April or early May. It features higher resolution than the original model and will supposedly be more affordable. The original started out at $350 but is now discounted to $250.
There's a new controller for Samsung's Gear VR headsets. It was announced earlier at Mobile World Congress back in February along with a new Gear VR. No word yet on pricing.
