ATLANTA, February 27, 2018 (Newswire.com) - i-Blason and SUPCASE — two leading manufacturers of protective cases for smartphones and tablets — surprised fans by offering to give away two free Samsung Galaxy S9+'s to celebrate their win in CNET's drop test at the Consumer Electronics Show last month.
The announcement came the same day Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the Mobile World Congress, the obvious main attraction at an event where major mobile companies share their latest innovations. Samsung was clearly gunning for the iPhone X, revealing that the S9 would be equipped with "AR Emoji" which copies users' facial expressions and turns them into an emoji they can send to friends. Automatic motion detection ensures every shot comes out picture-perfectly still, while a super slow-mo feature allows users to record video at an astounding 960 frames per second, stretching one-fifth of a second into six seconds that can instantly be turned into a GIF or moving wallpaper.
The giveaways are our way of thanking fans for supporting us and spreading the word that protecting your phone doesn't have to be expensive.

But the biggest star of the evening had to be the S9+'s dual-aperture lens with its unique ability to create professional quality photos, even in low light. Combined with a dazzling infinity display, iris-scanning, facial recognition technology and a staggering 400 GB memory capacity, Galaxy's new flagship phone is the stuff of envy, whether free or full price.
"Not only does the Galaxy S9 and S9+ enable consumers to shoot the best photos and videos anywhere, it's a smartphone that’s designed to help them ... express themselves in a way that's unique and personal to them," said DJ Koh, president and head of the IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung.
Samsung predicts the phones will be in stores by March 16, 2018, however, those looking to get their hands on an S9 but aren't exactly in the market for a new phone still have a chance to win a free S9+ through SUPCASE and i-Blason. SUPCASE, whose cases are sold by i-Blason, made waves recently after its Unicorn Beetle Pro (UB Pro) won first place in CNET's "Best Case Scenario" drop test, where an iPhone X was dropped onto a solid block of concrete from 20 feet in the air. After four nerve-racking rounds, the UB Pro came out unscathed, vastly outperforming cases that were much more expensive and even boasting the lowest price point at just $19.95.
On the heels of the success of their recent iPhone X giveaway, SUPCASE and i-Blason are each giving away a brand new Galaxy S9+ for a total of two free phones. There is no fee or purchase necessary to enter for those who live in the U.S. or Canada, and fans are allowed to enter up to nine times for each giveaway. Not only are there more chances to win but more than one way to win — with second runner-up taking home a premium case of their choice, and first runner-up receiving three free cases.
"The giveaways are our way of thanking fans for supporting us and spreading the word that protecting your phone doesn't have to be expensive," affirmed Michelle Hu, Director of E-commerce at i-Blason. "If you have one of our cases on your S9 or S9+, you can be confident your phone will be protected if it ever drops or falls."
In fact, i-Blason and SUPCASE were the first major brands to offer a line of S9 cases weeks before Samsung's official announcement. For those putting in their pre-order or planning to pick up an S9 in stores, cases are still available at http://SUPCASE.com and http://i-Blason.com.
