The Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 will soon be upon us and thus it’s a given that leaks are going to be heating up. We’ve seen an abundance of both devices already, and the latest comes from @evleaks and reveals a keyboard cover for the Galaxy S6 edge+. Hardware keyboards are hard to come by in Android devices these days — they’re basically extinct — and while most seem at peace with that evolution, there are always those that come out of the woodwork when we post even the vaguest rumor of a hardware keyboard and wax poetic about what a wonderful and superior experience they offer. samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-plus-keyboard-cover Well it looks like the Galaxy S6 edge+ keyboard cover could finally give you the opportunity to own a modern smartphone whilst also enjoying the pleasures of a hardware keyboard. Naturally, you will have to pay a bit for this luxury, as it is going to add some length to the bottom of the device, but you do get the standard Android buttons at the bottom along with pretty full device protection from the look of things. While I think it will cause some people physical pain to see a device that looks as nice as a Galaxy S6 edge+ saddled with what seems like a rather unfortunate-looking keyboard and case combo, I have no doubt there are physical keyboard diehards that will fly to its defense. So are you still out there keyboard lovers and if so has Samsung appeased you with this compromise?
