Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra: Best cases, screen protectors, and accessories in 2023
Samsung's latest lineup of tablets is here, including the flagship Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Here are all the best cases and accessories to pair with it.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is the newest and best Samsung tablet you can buy. Although it's only an incremental update from the previous Tab S8 series, it is a multitasking, media watch, game-playing powerhouse. Android tablets have gotten better across the board over the years, and that includes the Samsung Galaxy Tab lineup. The Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is one of the biggest tablets available from any manufacturer, featuring a gorgeous 14.6-inch display that can dwarf most thin and light laptops. As such, the tablet could be a laptop replacement for some, especially with Samsung DeX functionality built right in.
However, a tablet this large is made to be used with great accessories, from cases to screen protectors to pens and keyboards. Using these add-ons can not only elevate your Galaxy Tab experience but also make sure your device stays in good shape for years. We've been tracking the best accessories since the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra was first revealed, and we've compiled a list of the best ones available right now and will update it with more when they are released.
Urban Armor Gear has a reputation for making durable and sleek cases, and its offering for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra fits the bill. It has an integrated folio kickstand that supports multiple angles, and it includes magnets for auto sleep and wake functionality. If you're an avid S Pen user, there's a pen holder as well.
If you're looking to show off the sleek and modern design of the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, this clear case from Zeking does the trick. It's made out of soft and flexible TPU plastic, so you can easily place it on your new tablet. Plus, the case material can absorb shocks and scratches to protect the device.
This case from Wogroo matches the design language of the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra while adding a bit of protection. It's extremely thin, with a thickness of just 0.45 inches. However, that's just enough to protect against scratches and maybe even a few drops, which makes this a great buy for your new tablet.
In partnership with Supcase
Supcase has been making rugged cases for a long time, and it has one compatible with the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. It features a plastic back, rubber sides, and a built-in screen protector. Plus, it has an included S Pen holder and kickstand.
Samsung's official case for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is the Smart Book Cover, which includes an S Pen holder. It's also a folio case, so it offers automatic sleep and wake functionality. When you need a kickstand, the origami-style case folds to prop up your tablet in a pinch.
Soke's case compatible with the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra blends a rugged form factor with the traditional folio design. It opens up into a stand, but also has a rubberized design that can absorb shocks. Most importantly, it has an S Pen holder on the back of the folio case.
This case from Poetic toes the line between sleek and rugged, and it fits the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. It's a TurtleSkin case, which means it is rugged and shock resistant. Plus, it has a design on the back that looks like a turtle shell, which is a cool touch.
JETech has created a thin, shockproof Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra case in four color choices. It features a folio-style cover and a clear back to protect the tablet, with two ways to store the S Pen — one on the back for charging it and a spot under the cover to keep it better protected.
The best keyboard case for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra happens to be the official one from Samsung. It's on the expensive side, but it adds a full-size QWERTY keyboard without adding too much thickness. Plus, it has magnets and serves as a folio case when you aren't using the keyboard.
This keyboard case has a separate Bluetooth mouse included with it, which makes it especially compelling for people who want to use their S9 Ultra as a laptop replacement. It's an all-encompassing bundle that gives you everything you need to get started.
This GreenLaw case is compatible with the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra and offers a detachable keyboard. It features a folio design and can double as a kickstand, while it also offers an S Pen holder. The included keyboard isn't anything special, but you do get a lot for a reasonable price.
At an even more expensive price than the Book Cover Keyboard Slim, the standalone Book Cover is the most premium keyboard you can buy. Unlike the other version, this isn't a folio case. It's a standing case with a built-in kickstand and a detachable keyboard. You might compare it to Microsoft's Surface Keyboard, and that's a compliment.
Spigen makes great cases that are both sleek and rugged, and the company's Thin Fit Pro case for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra is no exception. It has a hard plastic exterior and a soft plastic interior that is suited to absorb shocks and drops. Plus, it has an S Pen holder and features raised edges.
SaharaCase's offering provides a lot of rugged features in a slim and sleek form factor. It isn't as thick or bulky as other options on this list, but it still offers amenities like a hand strap, kickstand, and S Pen holder. Plus, it adds a built-in screen protector.
If you're looking for a rugged case that can hold up against kids, this one from Clarkcas should do just that. It has a three-layer design that features a plastic display frame, plastic inner frame, and a rubber outer cover. Plus, it comes with a hand strap, shoulder strap, kickstand, and S Pen holder.
This is the sleekest yet rugged case of the bunch, largely because this option doesn't offer a hand strap or a shoulder strap. Instead, it provides a slimmer form factor while still retaining a rugged design that features reinforced corners and edges. It does offer a kickstand, too.
Supershieldz is known for making high-quality screen protectors, and they've already got one made for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. This option is a PET film screen protector that comes in a three-pack, so you already have replacements if one breaks. Plus, it's ultra-thin, so you'll hardly notice it's there.
Another high-quality offering from Supershieldz is their anti-glare matte screen protector for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. This screen protector is made out of plastic film, which makes it extremely thin. Since it comes in a three-pack, you can replace them multiple times over without having to pay more for it.
If you're planning on doing a lot of writing or drawing on your new Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, this screen protector from Zeking is right for you. It's a paper-feel screen protector that's designed to make writing on the S9 Ultra feel just like paper. These screen protectors add a bit of protection and are a breeze to use.
This tempered glass screen protector from KCT retains that feel you love about the original glass on the S9 Ultras screen but adds a matte texture to cut down on any glare you might get. The kit comes with an alignment tool, so you'll get a perfect installation on the first try.
The Anker 715 Nano II is a 65W charger. It's a compact design with fold-away prongs. It outputs up to 65W from its single USB-C port and provides more than enough power to charge the new Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
Samsung's Galaxy Buds Pro 2 are the best earbuds the company offers, and they're a great pairing for the new Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Since they're in the Samsung ecosystem, you'll get great features like quick pairing.
Anker's USB-C cable is a perfect match for the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, and it'll work great with the power adapter we've included on this list. It's a two-pack, so you can leave one at home and keep another with you.
This tablet stand from Amazon Basics is an affordable accessory that can prop up your Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. It's great for people that want to use the tablet as a desktop workstation. Plus, it's a versatile accessory that can work with your other devices as well.
Samsung's latest Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra has the potential to be your main computing workstation, but you'll need to add a few great accessories to it to make that possible. To both add more functionality to your Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra and keep it safe, you can add these cases, screen protectors, and accessories. Luckily, since the S9 UItra's dimensions are nearly identical to those of the S8 Ultra, you can take advantage of a ton of existing options. But, in the days following the reveal of the S9 Ultra, there have been a ton of new cases released.
If you want to use the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra as a laptop replacement, a keyboard case is a must. There's no better choice than Samsung's own Book Cover Keyboard. At $350, the Book Cover Keyboard is the most premium case option on this list. However, it features a sturdy and slim kickstand and a full-size detachable QWERTY keyboard. By the looks of it, the Book Cover Keyboard is at least as good as Microsoft's Surface Keyboard, which is a huge compliment. If you're looking to save a buck or two, the Book Cover Keyboard Slim is available for $150 less and still offers a full-size keyboard.
If you're looking for a more versatile option, the Spigen Thin Fit Pro is a sleek way to protect your Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. It doubles as a stand, but it can also house a keyboard if you choose to add one separately. Plus, it's just been redesigned specifically for the new Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. From a design perspective, it matches the look of the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, so it'll be a great pairing. There are some other great options from Spigen, but they're sold out at the time of writing. For additional protection, Supershieldz screen protectors are a great choice for PET film, and Zeking's option makes your tablet feel just like paper.
These days, not a lot of products come with great accessories, including even charging cables and wall adapters. There's no company that makes better-charging accessories than Anker, and its power adapter and USB-C cables are more than enough to power the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. If you're planning to use this tablet as your daily driver, chargers should be your first accessory buy.
