Yesterday Samsung Mobile tweeted that there would be an Injustice limited edition version of the Galaxy S7 Edge coming soon, and the device is now official as Samsung has just announced the phone, unveiling its unique Batman-themed design and colors. This wouldn’t be the first time that Samsung had created a device with a superhero theme, as last year they announced and launched an Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6 Edge device, and although the two heroes are based on different comic universes, the idea is that both are superheroes. One was also created to promote the Avengers Age of Ultron movie while this new device is promoting the Injustice Gods Among Us mobile game that you can download from the Google Play Store.
While there are tons of heroes and villains in the Injustice mobile game, Batman is arguably the most popular hero from the DC Comics universe, making him a clear choice for the themed design. The device comes in a deep black color with gold accents around the edges of the frame, as well as gold accents on the home button and fingerprint sensor, and around the rear camera lens, flash, and speaker grill. The Samsung logo on the front is also gold, and on the back, you’ll find a familiar Batman logo in gold as well.
This limited edition design has all of the same components of the original Galaxy S7 Edge, so there is nothing different here internally it seems, although Samsung doesn’t mention if this has the 32GB of storage or not. As part of the package the phone comes with a themed box, and what looks like a small metal plate Batman logo in gold, and Samsung states that in “select territories” the device also comes with a Samsung Gear VR headset, an Injustice game credit, and vouchers for Oculus VR content. Samsung doesn’t mention which territories will have those extras included, nor did they mention a price point or exact launch date yet, but they have mentioned that the device will launch in China, Singapore, Russia, Korea, and Latin America, and it will be launching in June. While they haven’t mentioned a launch for North America, the UK, or Europe, they have mentioned that in the near future they will be announcing other launch regions.
