Samsung isn’t a stranger to launching products that have themes, especially recently with superheroes. Last year the company launched a Galaxy S6 edge with an Iron Man theme. This year, Samsung’s decided to go with the Distinguished Competition.
Samsung took to Twitter to officially tease a new variant of the Galaxy S7 edge is on the way, this time with a Batman theme. There’s a big “Coming Soon” emblazoned over the silhouette of the phone, along wit the Batman symbol for good measure. The tweet reads “Coming soon: A new device for the battle against the Gods Among Us,” including several different Twitter accounts.
The interesting part here is that this Batman edition of the Galaxy S7 edge isn’t a themed device in line with marketing for the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, like the Iron Man-themed phone was for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead, the Batman phone is marketing Injustice: Gods Among Us, a fighting game that’s been available for consoles for quite some time (since 2013!). It’s also available on Android.
If the Iron Man edition of the Galaxy S6 edge is any indicator, then this Batman edition of the Galaxy S7 edge will have all sorts of tweaks to help it match Batman’s color scheme and other elements. Plus plenty of software, including wallpapers, on board to really spruce it up, too.
