Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 get luxury accessories from Montblanc and Swarowski
For its past few flagship smartphone generations, Samsung partnered up with luxury brands to launch limited edition premium accessories. Earlier this year, we've seen Samsung launch luxury accessories created by Swarovski and Montblanc for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, and just recently, Samsung announced that the newer Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are getting the same treatment.
The Montblanc accessory range for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 include two leather covers, including one with a flip wallet style, as well a few hard-shell covers with handmade tattoo designs created by artist Mo Coppolettta.

Swarovski, another traditional Samsung partner, has announced a couple of premium covers for the two Samsung phablets. The first one, called the Crystal Silver cover, comes with 1,300 encrusted crystals and is available for both the Note5 and the S6 edge+. The second cover - part of Swarovski's Edelweiss collection - employs crystals on a transparent cover and will only be available for the curved-screen Galaxy S6 edge+.
The Swarovski and Montblanc accessories for the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ will only be available for purchase in select countries. At the moment, Samsung and its partners have yet to disclose any information regarding pricing or release dates, but if history is any indication, don't expect these accessories to come cheap.
