Samsung and Marvel. At first, it does sound a bit strange. After all what can a smartphone manufacturer have in common with one of worlds leading comic and movie producer. Well, as it turns out, plenty.
The past few weeks have seen Samsung and Marvel as thick as thieves with Samsung recently signing a tie-in promo deal with the upcoming Marvel Avengers film that will allow it to use characters from the Marvel universe to create brand new icons for its devices. Not only that, Avengers: Age of Ultrons will also feature some highly futuristic and sophisticated looking gear that Samsung specifically conjured up for Marvel — and which it showcased at the CES.
However, all this pales in comparison to a recent rumor that we heard. We recently got hold of a whole bunch of pictures that depict Avenger-themed custom S6 Edge phones and while the person behind them clearly admits that they are not official, he also confidently goes on to state that the South Korean giant is actually considering something of the kind. Be that as may, the devices look absolutely fabulous and have gotten folks very excited sparking long discussions about every one’s favorite superheroes.
The movie premiers soon so if there really are some such plans underway, we should get an official statement soon — unless of course Samsung goes to the whole hog and releases them along with the movie — but then, it may just as well be simply a rumor.
Well, we will know about it soon either way, and in the meanwhile we leave you with more of the avengerized Galaxy S6 Edge — knock yourself out.
