Samsung is offering two variants of wireless chargers – a Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand and a Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible. The latter can be used as a pad to set your phone down, or you can stand it up to keep your phone at an optimal viewing angle.

Wireless Charger Duo

This Samsung wireless charger is designed to not only charge up the Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus, but also charge up a smartwatch like the many Samsung Gear or Galaxy wearable devices you can buy at the same time.

 

 

Portable Battery Pack

Samsung also sells its own Portable Battery Pack with 5100mAh capacity to give your phone a boost while on the move. It’s available in navy blue and silver colors.

 

DeX pad

Want to turn your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus into a work PC? The Samsung DeX Pad accessory will work with both phones to do just that. Just connect the smartphone to the DeX dock, and then connect the dock to a PC monitor, keyboard and mouse. The phone’s UI will then show up on the monitor as a Windows-like desktop UI, ready for you to do some word processing, fill out some spreadsheets and more.

Audio

Earphones tuned by AKG

The Bluetooth earbuds will last for up to seven hours when listening to music, and it even supports voice commands via Samsung’s in-house digital assistant Bixby. Best of all, it comes in black, gray and even pink colors.

Entertainment

Samsung Gear VR headset and controller

Want to play around with virtual reality, but don’t have a high-end PC or an expensive headset? The Samsung Gear VR headset, co-developed with Oculus, may be for you. Just put  your Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus inside the headset and use the included controller to play lots of cool VR games and experiences without having to pay an arm or a leg to do so.

 

Gear 360 camera

If you love your new Gear VR headset and decide you want to make 360-degree video content on your own, you are in luck. The Samsung Gear 360 stand-alone camera allows you to take full 360-degree videos in 4K resolution, plus pictures in 15MP.

Smartwatches and fitness wearables

The newest member of the Samsung smartwatch family, the Galaxy Watch is an excellent mobile wearable device with a colorful display, solid battery life, a host of useful smartwatch and fitness features and support for Samsung Pay.

Samsung Gear Fit 2/Fit 2 Pro/Gear Sport fitness wearables

If you just want a device to monitor your fitness stats, then Samsung has a number of them to check out, including the older Gear Fit 2, and the more recent Fit 2 Pro, both of which have a 1.5-inch rectangular display. The Gear Sport has a smartwatch-like circular display but is more of a fitness device.
