Samsung considering whether to build limited edition Avengers-themed Samsung Galaxy S6 edge variants

Samsung considering whether to build limited edition Avengers-themed Samsung Galaxy S6 edge variants

Renders of various Avengers-themed versions of the new Galaxy S6 edge and word is that Samsung is still considering whether it should make them. The devices would be offered as limited edition variants and Sammy would also sell matching cases to boot.

This isn't the first time we've seen Samsung and the Avengers cross paths – the Korean giant has had its name placed in the Age of Ultron trailers, and has announced to be working on penvatars – Avengers-themed avatars for the Galaxy Note line. So it isn't inconceivable that Samsung would make a line of phones dedicated to Marvel heroes, though, assigning the more expensive and niche Galaxy S6 edge to that cause may backfire, which is probably the reason why Samsung is yet holding back on a final decision.

Well, check the renders out below, and do note the cool Captain America and Iron Man covers, too!

Yeah, count me in. They would probably sell 10% more just having all those colors available, especially with the nice color shift of the S6.

The only problem is the USA would only have white and black, and the rest you'd have to likely order direct from Samsung. But yes, I think that would encourage sales.

I'm not that big of a comic geek, but these look awesome! And having a 'Jarvis' would help make it worth extra money with the better looks, they could even use all the different character's voices with s-voice (which I would never use otherwise).
Seriously though, since they have a Gear VR that will work with these phones, we could have an app that looked like we were inside Iron Man's suit!

I would say that if they are going to do a special edition of this phone and presumably charge a bit extra, they should include the case in the package and give us a few other goodies, just my opinion.

Yes do Ironman for Verizon. Then do a racing yellow and gold for Sprint, Blue for ATT and for T-Mobile? Use the chick, I can't think of her Avenger name.

That would be fun. Then we can watch the guys on eBay/Swappa/Craigslist try to sell these for a premium, trying to say things like "limited edition" and "only *insert number here* made"

1. Captain America
2. Iron Man
3. Thor
4. Fury
5. Hulk
6. Hawkeye/Black Window

Black Window should have been jet black with that iron man gold trim.

These are gadgets for adults. If you really want to talk about kids and their must-have toys, head over to an iPhone article, please. That is not meant as an insult to mature iPhone users, by the way. What I mean is that, one hardly ever sees children asking for the latest Android handset or tablet. No, as far as I have seen, the little children are always asking or even begging for their iPhones and their iPads.

I'm not for the gold trim even though i like the red. I'd have to go with Thor or Hulk. Very nice.
I sure hope Sammy actually does this. If they want sales this is probably more incentive than almost everything else inside the phone to most consumers. I happen to like the inside even more than the outside, but with the nicest specs on the market and external sex appeal like that, wow, nothing else would stand a chance. (which is actually really sad and a little disturbing, cuz i don't like a monopoly)

The render was initiated by a user "기립갤식 Girip Galsix" in a Korean Tech site (seeko.co.kr) and when the image went real popular, few days later Ms. Young Hee Lee (VP of Samsung the lady who was at the keynote) recognized it and told the press that she is well aware of the awesome idea.

She said that Samsung will review the idea positively. She also said that it is not too difficult to realize this since Marvel and Samsung already have partnership deals.

No Ultron, Thanos, Loki, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Vision?

I thought Vision will be big in this Age of Ultron movie, if it's based on comics book.
Only hero who deserves an edition over Thanos at all is Thor.

Well the guys above are the most popular of the Avengers in general, because these guys are already heros in US comic books. In the USA, those alone would sell to college geeks.

In fact if Samsung made about 1M of each they would all sell out in minutes.
I would certainly by Ironman for me and my wife loves green so Hulk for her.

If they came out with this with a limited edition run, like say 10,000 for each character, and sell these at a premium ($100 more), they would probably sell these out and you will see them on eBay for going about double. Look at the Hello Kitty limited edition HTC Butterfly from a few years back. Those are still selling for a premium on eBay as collector's items.
