Samsung Teases an Iron Man Edition of Galaxy S6 Edge
Haven’t you heard? Here is what Samsung has teased about the new Iron Man Edition of the Galaxy S6 Edge!
Samsung recently published a message on a social media website revealing that an Iron Man Edition of the Galaxy S6 Edge will be released soon.
The tweet contained a photo of what appeared to be the box of the Iron Man edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge headset.
The phone is the result of a partnership between Samsung and Marvel. With everything that is going on with Marvel and their new films listed everywhere, a gadget was the next big thing.
The photo that Samsung tweeted was of a red and gold box containing the Iron Man edition of the Galaxy S6 Edge and the logo for the film Avengers: Age of Ultron and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge written in the bottom corners.
And there is also a large Iron Man face emblazoned in the center.
Because in the past, Marvel has partnered with Samsung, this isn’t their first rodeo, and you can tell that they know what they are doing.
The first time they made the partnership, Samsung gave away four limited edition Avengers cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and there a ‘Battle For The Avengers Tower’ experience available for the Gear VR headset.
For this partnership Samsung is offering an ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ theme for the Galaxy S6, including a set of wallpapers, lock screens and icons.
However, it is known whether there will be additional editions of other Avengers characters for the Galaxy S6 line, but that will be decided based on how well the Iron Man edition does.
When it comes to the hardware and software, the Iron Man edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will probably have the same hardware specification as the original Galaxy S6 Edge.
Which means that it would have a 5.1-inch Quad HD display (577 pip), Exynos 7420 processor, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB RAM and 32/64/128GB storage options along with the signature Galaxy S6 Edge dual edge display.
Another thing that is uncertain is the price of the Iron Man edition which is not known yet, but there will be an update soon. Let’s hope so.
The phone is not yet released but we know that Samsung has prominent product placement throughout the film.
Brand tracking company Concave reported that Samsung is the most visible brand in the film over Audi, Harley-Davidson, Beats By Dre and Under Armour.
Even though Samsung posted a teaser of the box, the Iron Man edition of the devices does not come as a surprise. In an interview with Korea Times earlier this month, Samsung’s head of marketing Lee Young-hee said: “The color of the new Iron Man phones will be red. 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.”
Samsung started selling the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in 20 countries last month. It is believed that the sales of the Galaxy S6 line of devices are expected to surpass 70 million, according to a company official.
