We’ve been updating you about the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition over the past week and now the phone has finally been officially announced.
The Iron Man Edition is part of Samsung’s co-advertising campaign with Marvel’s new action movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron. As was expected, the S6 Edge Iron Man Edition features the customary Iron Man colors – red and golden, which makes for a striking device, albeit one only serious fans of the superhero would sport.
The phone, pictured above, has the same specs as the stock Galaxy S6 Edge, 64 GB storage and interestingly a wireless charger designed like Iron Man’s Arc Reactor.
“We are excited to be able to offer our world-class Galaxy S6 edge smartphone designed especially for Iron Man fans through our continued collaboration with Marvel,” said Younghee Lee, Samsung’s Executive Vice President of Mobile Division.
According to Samsung, the Iron Man S6 Edge will be available from May 27, 2015 in Korea, following its release in China and Hong Kong in June. There was however no mention of the phone’s availability in the United States.
As we reported earlier, Samsung intends to release only 1,000 units of the phone, which has its own special packaging and the Iron Man mask etched onto the back.
This isn’t Samsung and Marvel’s first rodeo though – in the past they’ve collaborated over Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and their recent advertisement featuring the Avengers Tower experience also promoted the Samsung Gear VR headset. Recently Samsung also released free Samsung S6 themes based on Marvel’s characters featuring in the Avengers movie.
