Samsung teased the new Galaxy S6 Edge model on Twitter Friday, sharing an image of the device’s packing, which features Iron Man’s helmet embossed on the lid. Samsung has said little about the device's release, only stating in the teaser that the smartphone is “coming soon and that availability will “differ by region.”
The Iron Man edition Galaxy S6 Edge will be released as a part of Samsung’s ongoing global partnership with comics publisher Marvel. Many of Samsung and Marvel’s recent promotions revolve around the Marvel film “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which hits theaters May 1.

Renders of the Iron Man edition Galaxy S6 Edge leaked back in March. They showed the device’s metallic red front and back panels and gold trim, which are very similar to the design of Iron man’s suit. Reports suggest that there might be special editions of the Galaxy S6 Edge for each member of the Avengers team, including the Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Black Widow and Thor.
Other Samsung and Marvel copromotions include a giveaway of four limited edition Avengers cases with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The giveaway ends June 1. In January, Samsung showcased several concept devices featured in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” including Tony Stark’s (Iron Man) custom smartphone. The device appears to be simply a glass panel with Samsung branding, but includes many high tech features that help Iron Man protect the world from evildoers.
