Samsung plotting Iron Man editions of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

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.
