Some of the first leaks of the newly announced Galaxy Note 5 were renders that Samsung sent to some accessory manufacturers so that they would have their products ready when it launched. The Galaxy S6 Edge+, on the other hand, was leaked in official-looking renders and some dummy units. Either way, these phones already have some official accessories like the keyboard cover, which was mentioned during the presentation, others were seen where they showcased the new phones. Some of them are expected to be created with some artists or designers, but there are also third-party makers that offer options with different materials and with more levels of protection.
