Samsung has created a keyboard case for your new S6 Edge+

Samsung just announced the most ridiculous accessory for its new S6 Edge+.

The South Korean tech giant is launching a keyboard cover for its Galaxy S6 Edge+.

The case effectively turns your shiny new phablet into a BlackBerry circa 2007. Great.

In fairness, Samsung is looking to solve a real problem, and that’s the awkwardness of typing on a flat, undistinctive touchscreen.

With the case, you get a whole QWERTY keyboard, which means it’ll be easier than ever to hack out lengthy e-mails on your smartphone.

The keyboard works via Bluetooth, and offers up hard physical buttons, including duplicates of the Android home screen and navigation buttons.

The case is also available for the Galaxy Note 5, although that particular handset is not actually coming to the UK.

It’s expected that the case will retail at somewhere around the $60 mark.

Samsung announced the oddball case today at its Samsung Unpacked event.

The company used the occasion to launch two new handsets, and a number of cases and wireless charging accessories to pair with the devices.
