Samsung S View Cover
The official case for the Galaxy S4 looks much like the old flip cover the S3. This time, a letterbox cut-out at the top of the case displays part of the screen when the case is closed, so to speak. The phone recognises when the cover is on, and it displays important info - time, notifications, that sort of thing - at the top of the screen, so it is viewable through the letterbox apps.
