A couple of days ago Evan Blass posted what looked like a render of the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge+ – Samsung’s new flagship expected to be announced at the Unpacked event on August 13th – wrapped in a gadget that doubled as both a phone case and a Blackberry-style physical keyboard. We passed on the story at the time, but more evidence has come to light that makes it seem a bit more plausible. Here’s the original tweet from Blass:

Today Dutch tech blog noticed an odd entry on a local web retailer: a listing for what looks like an official Samsung keyboard for the S6 Edge+. It’s rare for mobile manufacturers to release full keyboards for phones, even for large ones like the (still unconfirmed) Galaxy S6 Edge+ – they usually reserve those for tablets, and leave tiny phone keyboards to third-party accessory makers. If Samsung really is making a keyboard for its new flagship, an unconventional form factor seems more likely than not. There’s no photo on the listing, though the description says it’s colored silver.


The retailer lists the keyboard at a price of 48 Euro, about $52 at the current USD exchange rate, or 60 Euro with taxes. That would mean a $50-60 price for the US market. The listing says the gadget will be in stock on Monday, August 24th, which roughly matches the expected launch of Samsung’s new phones, though retailers are known to make guesses on that.

Samsung’s Unpacked event and expected Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ announcement is scheduled for Thursday, August 13th in New York City.

    You are a very ignorant individual. Go take a look at the glassware or clothing in your home, guaranteed you will find a good portion of that ‘made in China’. Don’t go slandering the name of the chinese when a typical Amercan has 45% of their stuff coming from China. People go with chinese knockoffs when they can’t afford the real thing. You are clearly a racist.
    PS- I’m not chinese.
    As for the game, i think it shoudnt have been pulled. Its like having two flashlight apps. Should one be removed because someone thought of the idea fi1t? If there was no code stolen then whats the issue? Has anyone actually played both games to see if there were any differences. I doubt fruit slice is connected with openfeint, that could be a selling point. I hate openfeint and the fact that it pops open every damn time. So if fruit slice removed openfeint then i would call this a feature. A feature that clearly makes it different than fruit ninja and i would have purchased it. Its like trying to remove the app fruit kaka fom the store as well. Did you guys forget that fruit ninja didnt even exist till the late part of 2010. Where were the develope1 then? Ya thats right, still on iOS4. Sometimes we do get these ‘cheap knockoffs’ but when he dev doesnt want to bring their app to our market, dont expect me to wait forever. If fruit slice is better would have no reason to not buy it. Guess ill never have the chance now.
