(Samsung has shown us the handset in its full glory and has also mentioned the fine details. The batman edition comes with a bat symbol, vouchers for the game and oculus VR content. The retail box also includes a special Gear VR headset and the Galaxy S7 with all back and gold hints along the edges making it look sleek and beautiful.
“We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and offer a special edition of Galaxy S7 edge for fans of Injustice: Gods Among Us,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung always seeks to provide the best mobile gaming experience for its users, and this partnership reinforces our commitment to the game’s fans.”)
The dark knight is an important figure in comic history. He is so important that Samsung has decided to make a Galaxy S7 based on batman theme. We have seen leaks in the past that this phone will make its debut during the premiere of the movie, Batman Vs Superman but months after the movie released, Samsung has chosen to show us the phone.
The teaser curiously shows the branding of the game Injustice: Gods Among Us. The arcade game that was released a couple of years back. So why would Samsung and Warner Bros release a phone that honours a game released long ago?
I think that the phone is indicating a sequel for the game and will release simultaneously with the console release. The teaser said the following words.
“Coming soon: A new device for the battle against the Gods Among Us.”
It is curious that Samsung has only introduced us to the Batman Edition while superman and wonder women are also the major characters in the game. Maybe it has plans for other editions and will unveil them at a later stage.
This isn’t the first time that Samsung is releasing a phone that compliments a superhero. We have seen last year that the Galaxy S6 Edge had an Iron Man Edition that sold out as soon it was released. The limited edition of the handset sold for as much as $6000 on eBay.
The pricing and the availability of batman edition are unknown but Samsung said they will update us very soon.
