Samsung has confirmed it will soon release new versions of its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones in Iron Man colours.

Quotes attributed to Samsung Mobile’s marketing chief Lee Young-Hee, in the Korea Times, reveal the new red and gold editions will arrive at the end of May or in early June.

The release will apparently be an official tie in with Marvel for the Avengers: Age Of Ultron film currently playing in cinemas around the world. Of course, the film heavily features Tony Stark’s billionaire superhero Iron Man.

“The colour of the new Iron Man phones will be red,” Lee said. ”We will decide on other details soon after discussions with Marvel Studio. It will be released either at the end of May or early June.”

The planned release is great news for Samsung fans with a leaning towards the hit movies or comic books. However, it’s strange the firm has waited until the new Avengers flick is out before releasing the custom paint job.

The Galaxy S6 appears to be resonating with consumers since its launch last month, with reports the firm is attempting to ramp up production in order to meet demand.

Samsung aims to sell a combined 70 million S6 Edge and S6 handsets before the end of 2015. Early reports had indicated a potential 20 million pre-orders for the new-generation flagship devices, while Samsung itself said “the first week looks impressive” back in April.

You can't even get your hands on the Topaz Blue, Emerald Green or any 128gb standard model, so it will be interesting to see what the availability of this will be like. Hopefully it will be released before the Galaxy S7.

I can't think of anything sadder than waiting for an Iron Man edition of any phone. Unless it's for your kid (or you are a kid). I mean come on would Tony Stark really rock an S6? Especially after Downey's excruciating HTC advert. Anyway, Iron Man is beginning to grate on me. And the Age of Ultron was the weakest of all the Marvel films in my opinion. If you are that big a fan then download one of that film's themes from the Theme Store. They are pretty cool and more important...temporary. Now what would be really cool would be a AI Jarvis app. Until it took over your phone...and the rest of the world.

I didn't notice. But not suprising. Was it an Iron Man edition?

Erm I don't think so, black widow uses one as well and I think it was black sapphire version.
