The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series is here. There are two models again this year, with the 6.7in regular joined by a 6.9in Ultra variant.
Both are undoubtedly premium phones, featuring the latest Snapdragon chipset, gorgeous HD screens and powerful cameras. They also come with the built-in S-Pen, the defining feature of the Note series.
Samsung has coined the term ‘glasstic’ to describe the back of the regular Note 20, while the Ultra sticks with an all-glass design. Nonetheless, with the cheapest Note 20 configuration costing £849, these are expensive phones that you’ll want to protect.
Ahead of their release on 21 August, here are the best cases that you can buy for both models right now.
Official Samsung Kvadrat
Samsung has a huge range of cases available for the Note 20 series, but this one stood out.
Kvadrat is a celebrated global textile company, and its case has a unique patterned design made from eco-friendly material. It’s perfect for protecting the phone from everyday bumps and scrapes, and its simple look and feel allows the design of the phone to shine.
You can buy it directly from Samsung, costing £29 for both models. It’s not currently available in the US.
Official Samsung LED View for Note 20
At the opposite, Samsung’s LED cover provides complete protection and gives your Note 20 a very different look and feel.
The case has been available for previous Samsung phones, but this version features a larger LED display and touch interaction, allowing you to manage notifications while keeping it closed.
You can buy it now from the Samsung website, costing £59.99 for both models. In the US, pick it up from Mobile Fun for $65.48.
Otterbox Symmetry for Note 20
If you don’t want to go for an official case, you can’t go wrong with the Otterbox Symmetry.
It provides great protection against drops, bumps and fumbles, all while adding very little bulk to your device. Raised edges also mean the screen isn’t left exposed, too.

Spigen Slim Armor for Note 20
Spigen’s Slim Armor has been a staple of our case round-ups in recent years, and the Note 20 variant is no different.

ESR Metal Kickstand for Note 20 Ultra
ESR’s Metal Kickstand for the Note 20 Ultra is a great companion for the “everything phone”, with a premium design and high-end protection.
The freely adjustable kickstand allows for the phone to be angled up to 60 degrees, while it can also operate in portrait or landscape modes. The camera module and screen are also protected by raised bezels.
You can buy it now for £15.19/US$18.99. Available at the same price for the regular Note 20 in the UK and US.
Caseology Parallax for Note 20
If you’re interested in turning heads, Caseology’s 3D patterned case is the one for you.

It’s not compromising on protection though, with the TPU material protecting the phone from everyday scratches and bumps.
