Following some heavy hints, Samsung has outed a new special edition Galaxy S7 Edge with a Batman theme.
Samsung threw out a few hints of a fresh Batphone via a couple of tweets yesterday. Okay, so ‘hints’ is something of an understatement.
Still, today sees the company revealing all on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition. That’s its official name, by the way.
This decidedly black Galaxy S7 Edge (seriously, even the metal edges are noir) has gold detailing for its earpiece, Samsung logo, and home button. Around back there’s more gold around the camera and flash, and a telltale golden bat symbol etching.
We also get an unboxing video of the special edition phone:
The package will also include a Gear VR headset in some territories, as well as an Injustice game credit and Oculus VR content vouchers. Is that a chunky Batman armour-styled rubber case in there? Looks like it.
Samsung’s TouchWiz UI appears to have had an Injustice-themed spruce up (or should that be Bruce up?) too.
We were a little puzzled about the timing of this Batman phone before this big reveal, and to be honest, we’re a little puzzled now. Apparently, it’s been released “To commemorate the third anniversary of the popular mobile game, Injustice: Gods Among Us”.
Commemorating a mobile game’s birthday? That’s a new one on us.
Samsung will only be releasing this limited edition Galaxy S7 edge in select territories in early June, including China, Singapore, Korea, Latin America, Russia. The company promises that more territories will be “announced soon”.
