These days, we get to see the accessories for a smartphone before it’s launched. Case in point, we just had a look at the range of Montblanc accessories for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Fair warning - the following accessories aren’t your usual under S$50 types. You do get what you pay for, mainly for the workmanship and brand recognition. The most obvious and matching accessory for the Galaxy Note 4 would be a Montblanc pen. There are two of them - the Pix Pen and e-Starwalker Pen - that are compatible with the Galaxy Note 4.
If you do own either of these pens, you can just get the e-refill (price to be confirmed), swap it into the pens and there you have it, a working stylus for the phablet. Think of the e-refill as a modified S-Pen, except it fits into either of the Montblanc pens. If you are in the market to get one of the premium pens, they will be sold along with the e-refill. The Pix Pen is priced at S$460 while the e-Starwalker has a higher price tag at S$690.
Also, you can finally stick real leather onto your new Samsung phablet. Sort of, with the Meisterstuck Soft Grain Cover and Montblanc Extreme cover. Both flip covers have a digital ID chip that links up with the Galaxy Note 4. This triggers exclusive downloadable Montblanc digital content for the Samsung phablet, plus unique pen settings for the S Note app.
The Soft Grain Cover is made from refined black calfskin leather. A minute of silence for the poor cow, everyone. The Montblanc Extreme cover, as its name suggests, has a higher tolerance towards abrasion. The high-performance leather surface is also able to repel water and heat. Definitely useful if the phone heats up.
Both flip covers for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are priced at S$320, and will be available during the launch of the phablet. That, by the way, is pegged sometime in October, and we understand the first week is most likely.
