Last year, we saw an Iron Man version of the Galaxy S6 Edge as a limited promo edition for the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” . A special Avengers edition of Galaxy S6 accessories were also announced back in May and were soon made available. They’re all too cool and geeky but the most memorable for us was the wireless charging pad fashioned after Captain America’s shield.
This year, there won’t be any new Avengers movie but Samsung is rumored to be launching a 'Batman vs Superman Special Edition' a few weeks after the official launch of the Galaxy S7 which is happening this February 21. This is somewhat expected since the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is 2016’s biggest superhero movie (sorry, Deadpool fans).
The image render above may look nothing like what we imagine Samsung could be designing right now. Rumor has it that only 1,000 units will be produced and released but that’ just like the number of Iron Man Galaxy S6 Edge phones made last year. Expect the usual Batman v Superman-themed freebies like ringtones, media files, wallpaper, video clips, and audio among others. Since the Galaxy S7 Edge will be announced a few weeks earlier this year, we can also expect the special edition to be unveiled a bit earlier.
We know you’re excited about the possibility of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge bearing the Superman shield and the Batman logo but since the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones are not yet official, you can rest your mind for now. Don’t worry about having to hurry when and where to pre-order for one because it’s still less than a week before the Unpacked event. Believe me, you can and will get one when Samsung makes an official announcement. We’ll keep you updated, promise!
