Given how reliable mobile pay options are in 2018, it’s actually not that big of a deal if you forget your wallet at home. Our phones can now store most credit and/or loyalty cards, with your photo ID being the only physical card you actually need to have on you. This makes a wallet case a fantastic option for the new Pixel 3 XL, and I’ve rounded up some of the best case options from cheaper options made from synthetic leather to the premium Bellroy Leather Wallet Case.
Made of synthetic leather with a clear ID pocket and a hidden money pocket, this folio-style wallet case may just check all your boxes. It can store up to three cards along with some cash, and the front cover doubles as a kickstand.
Plan to use Google Pay for most of your purchases and only need a slot for your ID card? Check out this slim case that doesn’t add much bulk to your pocket carry.
ProCase is known for their wallet cases made with genuine leather, and if you’ve used one before, you’ll know what to expect here. You get the standard folio style with a magnetic clasp and storage for two cards and a cash money pocket. Get that real leather feel for less.
You went all-out on the larger Pixel 3 XL, so why not go the distance with a premium wallet case? From Bellroy, this Made for Google case features four card slots — two on the front cover, and two more hidden between the case and the back of your phone. It’s made from environmentally certified leather and available in five beautiful colors.
This case has great stitching, which is a lovely white contrast to the black. It also has a triangular magnetic closure, and the front cover flips back into a kickstand, so you can watch videos hands-free. There’s room for three cards and some cash, and your Pixel 3 XL is held in place by a TPU bumper.
We’ll be updating this list with other wallet-style case options as they emerge, but for now it’s hard not to swoon over that Bellroy Leather Wallet case. It’s definitely worth picking up if it fits in your budget,
