Samsung’s gleefully riding the Avengers: Age of Ultron hype by announcing Iron Man versions of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. They’re coming out soon too, as early as this month.
While no official renders have come out, the phones will definitely be red. Lee Young-hee, head of marketing for Samsung Mobile, confirmed the release to be as early as the end of May or early June.
It’s not surprising, considering Samsung and Marvel Entertainment signed a deal for a global partnership last year in June. The deal was, for the most part, about product placement where if you look carefully you’ll see the Galaxy S6 Edge as well as a Samsung tablet PC in the film. Captain America actor Chris Evans has also been heavily promoting the S6 Edge on his official Twitter account.
It'd be interesting to see if Samsung creates other variants besides Iron Man. Alcatel not too long ago had its own Iron Man promo tieup to promote its Idol phone, though that was nowhere near as flashy as the Samsung S6 range. But fans of the other Marvel characters, don't lose heart. You can always, after all, find your own custom skins and wallpapers instead of waiting for Samsung.
