Mobile users who love Android smartphones, comics, and Marvel movies should be delighted with this news -- Samsung has just officially released its special Iron Man edition of one of its newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 Edge.
The Galaxy S6 Edge is the curvy sibling of the South Korean phone maker's Galaxy S6 device. The Galaxy S6 Edge used to be only available in Black Sapphire and White Pearl color options. But with this new special Iron Man edition of the handset, fans are treated to a version that sports the familiar fiery red shades of the fictional high tech metal armor worn by the world's only genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Avenger.
This special edition Galaxy S6 Edge handset is obviously debuting in light of the recent release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the sequel to the mega-blockbuster Avengers movie from 2012. True to its moniker, this model comes with some of the looks and feel of the Tony Stark's armor. Thus, the smartphone is equipped with a unibody rendered in metallic red color, and is accented with gold flourishes around the buttons, the camera, and along the curved border of the handset itself. Hardcore Marvel fans will surely be glad to know that the rear side of the device is printed with a graphic depicting the Iron Man mask just between the camera and the handset's Limited Edition serial number.
And it is not only the hardware that screams Iron Man. Samsung has teased a user interface that actually incorporates some Iron Man graphics, including matching fonts, as well as red and gold colored phone and camera icons. As for those who are hoping that the device comes with J.A.R.V.I.S., they might be asking a bit too much. But one can still dream.
Still, the fact that the handset comes with a custom paint job, 64 gigabytes of internal storage, and a limited edition wireless charger accessory that features an arc reactor graphic on top, it is not such a bad offering. At the least, it should sate every fanboy's dream of owning an Avengers gadget, bragging rights notwithstanding.
But there is a big caveat though. The handset is being released for now in Samsung's native South Korea, with sales starting in China and Hong Kong in the latter part of June. This means that for American mobile users, there might be some waiting to be done, that is, if the device ever gets to US shores at all (there is no release date for the US yet).
