Top Galaxy S6 Edge Plus accessories ups device functionality, audio, display, charge speed; Samsung clip-on keyboard case emulates Blackberry
Users of Samsung's new flagship device, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, may customize their Android device with the most raved Edge Plus accessories including a keyboard case that takes after Blackberry's. These add-ons will boost the Edge Plus' charging speed, audio and display quality, and functionality.
IT Pro reports details of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus' release and features. The device launched on August 13 along with the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" tablet in an Unpacked event. It hit UK stores on August 18 and presumed to be available to the public on September 4.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus sports a dual-curved 5.7" AMOLED screen bigger than that of S6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It has the same 2560 x 1440p resolution as the S6 but is considered heavier than its predecessor. The device comes with a 5MP front camera and a main 16MP snapper at the back. It runs on 3000mAh battery and is equipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The Edge Plus has a metal finish similar to the S6 and originally came in gold and black. However, Samsung hints to more colors to come soon. Samsung's flagship device has 4 GB RAM and a 32/64 GB storage but no slot for SD cards.
Digital Trends mentions a new keyboard accessory that is rumored to be bundled with the Edge Plus once it goes on sale. Samsung is believed to have provided a new, specialized tactile keyboard perfect for people finding it difficult to type on-screen. The QWERTY keyboard's ergonomic design comes with plastic and blocky physical buttons.
The Samsung keyboard emulates a previous design by Blackberry in the sense that its clip-on function attaches it to the phone's screen. The keypad overlays and extends a bit from the bottom. Leaks showed the keyboard in silver along with a Samsung phone with the same color.
Aside from the keyboard, Bluetooth headphones are expected to come with the Edge Plus as seen on Samsung's French website. Android Central also named some popular accessories for the flagship such as a wireless Samsung charging pad which can re-juice the device by 100% in less than an hour and a Spigen Slim Armor case with sleek dual-layer design to protect the device from hard impacts. The case comes with four color options: gold, slate, violet, and gunmetal.
Samsung's Level Box for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus provides quality audio playback. It comes with SoundAlive feature for sound equalization. The speaker device works with NFC and can last for 15 hours.
The 10,000 mAh Dual-USB Slim Power Bank by Aukey may come in handy when the Edge Plus drains out of power. It functions as an external emergency back-up with two USB slots: one providing Quick Charge and the other one with a typical charging rate.
Samsung's Galaxy S6 suffered decline in market share as demand for Chinese-manufactured phones went up, with Apple's iPhone 6 also a major factor. However, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus along with its in-demand accessories, brings new hope to the company which is fourth on the list of top OEMs.
