Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus might come with this optional QWERTY keyboard case

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus might come with this optional QWERTY keyboard case
Expected to be officially unveiled on August 13 (alongside the Galaxy Note 5, and possibly a new Galaxy tablet), the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus seems to be just a bigger Galaxy S6 edge, having a similar design, and largely similar features. However, Samsung may want to differentiate the new handset in more ways than just by size.

@evleaks today posted a render showing the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus paired with a QWERTY keyboard case. We don't know if this case is manufactured by Samsung, or by a third-party accessory maker, but it's probably a Samsung product, as its Android navigation buttons look a lot like the navigation buttons seen on older Galaxy smartphones. Obviously, this keyboard case gives the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus an unusual aspect. Assuming it will be released at some point, the accessory should be of interest to users who prefer hardware keyboards over software ones.

If this is indeed an official S6 Edge Plus accessory, we're probably going to find out more about it next week. Would you be interested in buying a keyboard like this?

Also seems very impractical, though I haven't used it so I wouldn't know.

This is click bait. I don't even know why this story was even published... Looks completely fake and very badly photoshoped.

With it the phone looks like very similar to one of the first Sony Ericsson touch screen PDAs

I agree! That silver variant though! Maybe we'll have metallic colors this time in contrast to the gem shades we have with the S6/S6 edge.

It would have looked better if they designed the case to be around the whole phone, protecting it, and maybe like a Flip Case but with the lower part a keyboard and the upper part a window... and since AMOLED can turn off the pixels under the window it would actually save battery... Anyway this one is horrendous...

It should cover the part of the screen the keyboard is in, so it is the same size and saves battery by turning off half the screen

The beauty of a keyboard adapter that appears to snap on and off.......it's really come to this. Meanwhile, no one could pick the keyboard to their computer out of a line-up.

The S6 Edge is a sleek, modern looking device. That hideous cheap looking plastic thing completely ruins the asthetics of the device. @evleaks got some bad info lol.
