While it’s generally safe to reserve judgment on a freshly announced phone until in-depth reviews start coming in, there’s no question about the kind of first impression Samsung’s “refined” Galaxy S9 and S9+ have left on MWC 2018 attendees.

We can totally see why you’d want to rush to one of many authorized retailers this Friday to be one of the world’s first to pre-order these bad boys, but if you do, don’t forget to protect your investment.

You wouldn’t want your precious new “Infinity Display” to accumulate fingerprints, get scratched or, God forbid, crack after just a couple of days of use, and a measly $50 will guarantee a decent level of protection.

Enter the InvisibleShield Glass Curve Elite from market-leading accessories maker Zagg, available now on the company’s official website for both the S9 and S9+ ahead of a nationwide March rollout across Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Best Buy.

Whichever of the two new phones you want to protect against smudges, scratches and impacts, you’ll be paying $49.99, and getting a “custom, curved fit” specially designed to fit the “contours of your screen precisely.” In other words, you’ll slip the Glass Curve Elite in, and forget all about it. Granted, it won’t make your Galaxy S9 completely immune to damage, but it’ll certainly improve the handset’s durability for its entire life.

After all, dropping this beaut feels as inevitable as it did for the Galaxy S8, and if that happens, you’re probably in for a world of hurt.
