Covers designed for the S III will not fit the newest member of the Galaxy family because of differences in size and back cover.
A range of styles including folio wallets, and flip and snap-on cases in splashy and sophisticated designs are available.
Here are some popular trends to look forward to:
Crystal phone cases are becoming increasingly popular, with many models incorporating cartoon, 3D, animal or flower patterns. The use of aluminum, fabric, PU leather or wooden trimmings is also on the rise.
To cater to diverse preferences, DIY sets are available that allow users to create their own style using pearls, rhinestones or fabric.
Leather mobile phone cases for the Galaxy S IV are available in various grains such as lychee, nappa, crocodile-skin, leopard or rhombus.
In terms of design, clamshell, flip-top and notebook styles are very popular. Some other common designs include pouch, sock, sleeve and armband.
Many of the new S IV cases offer functional features and add-ons. These include pockets for holding keys, money, earphones and SD cards. Some have a display stand, stylus pen sleeve, hand strap and even a built-in mirror.
Classic black and white remain popular, but bright hues are catching on as are diverse themes and motifs.
Here is a selection of cases available for purchase in bulk:
