Remember the Iron Man edition Galaxy S6 Edge? Samsung’s limited run Marvel-branded smartphone launched a few months after the flagship device and ended up going for as much as $91,000 on the second hand market. Now the two companies could be teaming up again on a new device.
According to one Chinese tipster, Samsung may be prepping an Ant-Man edition Galaxy S6 edge Plus. If history is any guide, the new device will offer the same specs as the original model, but with a fresh coat of paint to match the shrinking superhero’s costume. It could also cost a good deal more than the regular version; the Iron Man Galaxy S6 was priced at a little over $1,000.
The Galaxy S6 edge Plus is already a pretty powerful phone. It packs a 5.7-inch Quad HD display with curved edges, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, a 3000mAh battery, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of RAM, wireless charging and a fingerprint reader. Toss in a new color scheme and you have yourself a pretty sweet device. Then again, you might be better off grabbing the non-Marvel version and saving a few hundred bucks on the price.
Of course this is just a rumor for now, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be true. The Ant-Man Galaxy S6 edge Plus could easily arrive in time for the holidays, though hopefully this time Samsung produces more than just 1,000 units.
