Samsung has teamed up with Marvel and has launched the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition smartphone in select countries.
The red and gold S6 Edge comes with 64GB of storage as well as a matching wireless charger, and while Tony Stark is more than happy to get his suit scratched, Samsung has thrown in a clear cover for the device so your armour stays protected.
The Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition also has a custom Avengers theme preinstalled. And the wireless charger in the Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition was designed to look like the 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 Samsung’s Executive Vice President of Global Marketing of the IT & Mobile Division Younghee Lee.
The handset will be launched in South Korea on 27 May along with China and Hong Kong in June.
The price range for the special edition device is not known yet.
The special edition S6 Edge has a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, an Exynos 7420 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 3GB RAM.Galaxy S6 edge is distinguishable from all the other smartphones on the market because of its dual edge display. By curving the display on both sides of the device, the Galaxy S6 edge is able to show its users social media notifications, text messages, e-mails and call history even when the phone is face down.
The model, which comes as part of a long-running tie-in between Samsung and Marvel for its Avengers movies, also comes with a wireless charging pad made to look like one of Stark's arc reactors.
SIron Man's face appears on the back side of the device, his high "eyebrows" and downturned mouth giving him a look of glum surprise.
