Given the recent release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Samsung has decided to leverage the hype surrounding the film by deciding to launch a new Iron Man edition of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Reports suggest that these limited edition variants will be unveiled next month with availability hopefully starting shortly after that.
“The color of the new Iron Man phones will be red,” said Samsung’s mobile marketing chief Lee Young-hee. “We will decide on other details soon after discussions with Marvel Studio. It will be released either at the end of May or early June.”
It is obvious that this variant will be pretty expensive, so don’t expect it to go easy on your wallets. A move like this makes sense considering that Samsung has a partnership with Marvel for product placement in its films. We even saw the extensive use of Samsung products in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Considering the popularity of Iron Man, we can expect a lot of fans to be interested in these new models.
Apart from the color of the device, we don’t expect there to be any other changes with these special edition smartphones. There have been mockups floating around the internet telling us what to expect, so we have some idea as to what the design will be like on this new variant of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.
