Samsung drops teaser image for Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man edition


Recently, Samsung Mobile's marketing chief Lee Young-hee confirmed that an Iron Man edition of the company's flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be released in the near future. Today, the Tizen maker has rolled out a very enticing, albeit not-too-revealing teaser of the Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man edition's packaging. If you happen to be a fan of Iron Man as well as the handsets, you'll be pleased to know that the red and gold devices should be available to purchase within a month. 

Speaking at a screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Seoul just over a week ago, Lee indicated that the special version of the two devices would hit the market by late May or early June. Today, the official Samsung Tomorrow Twitter feed has delivered the first of what will likely be a few teasers as it looks to generate hype, and while there's no glimpse of the device itself, the glowing box will still surely have Iron Man fans frothing at the mouth. 

The above image is captioned "coming soon," which ultimately doesn't tell us a lot, and also adds that "detailed availability in markets may differ by region." This infers that some Iron Man / Avengers fans are going to have it easier than others when trying to land this coveted, limited-edition gadget. But as the finer release details emerge, we'll have them covered at PhoneArena

If the red and gold packaging is anything to go by, fans will be in for a real treat. Sure, the real thing probably won't glow or offer the magical unboxing experience that Samsung has illustrated, but for avid Iron Man fans, this is a release not to be missed. 

Since we're still waiting for that first eyes-on of the Iron Man Galaxy S6, you'll find a set of fan-created images to whet your appetite below. While they're not official, they're still very easy on the eye, and we'd imagine that the first render -- the red device with the gold trim -- offers a fair representation of what we can expect from the eventual Iron Man Galaxy S6 edge. 

Given the seemingly limited nature of the Iron Man variant, it doesn't appear likely that Samsung's cosy relationship with Marvel will spawn special edition handsets for The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, or any other Avengers heroes shown below. Still, a geek can dream, right?

A Batman vs Superman edition would've been even epic for the geek in me :3

It would be awesome to also have the Iron man sounds as well. Like when he shoots his energy beam out of his hand, that sound for messages, and J.A.R.V.I.S. as the voice prompt on the phone. That would be great.

"Speaking at a screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Seoul just over a week ago, Lee indicated that the special version of the two devices would hit the market by late May or early June." maybe the s6 normal will also get it?

Anyone thinks Age of Ultron is s**t compared to the first Avengers? Seriously, they messed up Ultron really bad and the action scenes aren't that epic compared to the first. Biggest letdown for me since Iron Man 3. Least it isn't like Thor: The Dark World.

I agree on this, good thing I didn't waste my money on IMAX. But I still like Iron Man,

It felt like the movie had no climax, it was humdrum action here and there with a billion sub-plots going around at the same time. It never peaked.

All of the sub plots and no climax were done exactly on purpose. All of the recent marvel movies have in a way "lacked a climax". The whole point of all the marvels movies (avengers, captain america, thor, guardians of the galaxy etc.) Are suppose to build up to the final avengers movie Infinity War. That's supposed to be the final climax. All of the infinity stones would be found by then.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I hope they don't go with the civil war angle like they are rumored to be doing with the next movie. They worked hard to turn Ironman from a nobody Punisher/Daredevil or worst level character into one of the most popular heroes in the marvel universe. It would be a shame if they ruined Robert Downy Junior by turning him into basically the equivalent of the Xmen villain in charge of the Sentinnel program from the 2nd Xmen movie. I couldn't stand that guy and his values and turning Tony Stark into that guy is just wrong with a capitol W.

I actually thought the fighting scenes were the only good thing about this movie besides being slightly better than the first one.. I just don't like what they did with the characters and the whole direction they went with the story. I'm more of a guardians guy - one of my favourite movies.

Not sure why he has to mention Samsung as the Tizen maker. But where do I pay for this phone D:

That's a pretty pimp looking package.

My preorder Galaxy S6 Edge is finally getting delivered after a full month of delays and now this is coming? I will not open the box until I see what this will look like. If it remotely looks like the fan render, I dont care if it costs $1000, I will be buying it no matter what country has it. The Red back and front with the gold trim would be insanely unigue, insanely beautiful and I don't care how much you love Apple or hate Samsung, you'd have to admit it was the best looking device EVER!!!!!!!!!!
