Samsung reveals how the custom S7 edge Injustice Edition got designed



Samsung is no stranger to outing overpriced custom versions of its high-end handsets  - it had a $2500 Iron Man Galaxy S6 edge just last year, for heaven's sake, and this year is no different. The company unleashed an "Injustice Edition" Galaxy S7 edge to satiate our thirst for comics superheroes, with Batman references on the phone's exterior and packaging.

Now, the designers in charge of the Batman-themed S7 edge are out swinging to explain how the special edition was made. Based on the Warner Bros Injustice: Gods Among Us game, the phone prominently features the Batman logo on its back, as that's one of the game's main characters. As per Junwon Lee and Kwangmoon Kim, two of the phone's lead designers:

As a collectors item? Yeah actually! But you're not just getting a phone. You're getting a Gear VR as well, free games, and its theme with batman Logos and its limited edition. It doesn't offer any consumer value whatsoever, it offers collector value. Don't you collect unique items?

Compared to the ironman edition and upcoming iphone 7 plus, injustice way more affordable. I would buy one if it come to my country.

People who think and troll that this S7 batman edition is overpriced, just think what apple would have priced if they have made iPhone 6s-Batman edition! 1250$ S7 edge despite has Unique black VR, Batman logo, batman cases come in a beatiful custom box.

They should reveal how the hell did they came up with that ludicrous price... just for a Batman logo. If at least was a 18k gold plate... My only guess is that it classifies as a fast cash-grab.

I agree it is a little over priced but really not that much. It is targeted for the collectors not the everyday users.

MAX 1000$ anything over is pure ripoff! they have to make it accessible for everyone and batman fans not making it a stupid overpriced phone! I mean clearly no one in budget range of that phone (2500$ or close) will get a comic book hero phone!

I heard it has a larger battery as well and overclocked CPU. Any truth to those rumors?
