Samsung teamed up with Marvel to create a phone that looks , smells and probably fights like Iron Man.
The themed S6 Edge is as they said “a celebration of the technological innovation and creative visual storytelling in Marvel’s Avengers : Age of Ultron”. There aren’t any hardware changes , although we all wanted an Arc Reactor instead of a 2,600 mAh battery but then the handset would cost more than a heart in the black market.
Customers get a special edition box with the Iron Man mask stamped in the front in a vibrant red and gold tones.
The 64GB storage themed S6 comes with everything that you would get on a normal one, but inside the box there is a wireless charger that looks exactly like an Arc Reactor found in Tony Stark’s chest , and a clear cover to protect the back of your phone.
The themed Galaxy is going to be released first in Korea, while Hong Kong and China will be getting it still this June.
Samsung didn’t provide any information about this variant to be sold in other markets , specially Europe and North America.
Samsung has also announced that 1,000 units ( all numbered) will go on sale tomorrow in South Korea for KRW 1,199,000 ( around $1,100). The first 100 buyers will get a special Avengers Briefcase , while the next 100 buyers will get two tickets to Marvel Avengers Station Exhibition.
