No, it’s not the Galaxy S6 Active that appeared in many leaks so far. Instead, it’s a special edition smartphone that superhero fans will likely appreciate, especially if they’ve been holding out from buying the smartphone in anticipation of this particular version.

Samsung recently confirmed that a special Iron Man Edition of the Galaxy S6 will be launched soon, just as it was previously rumored. The move isn’t surprising, as Samsung products are featured in the latest Avengers movie. In addition to this special Iron Man Edition Galaxy S6 smartphones, the company is expected to also sell several other accessories based on the characters in the movie.

Galaxy S6 sales have apparently been a bit slower than expected, so now it’s apparently time to see if a superhero can save Samsung.

Samsung on Friday shared more details on its official Facebook page about the actual release date. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man editions will be “coming next week,” according to Samsung’s post, which included a teaser image for the special version of the Galaxy S6 edge smartphone.

However, Samsung has yet to specify how much these Iron Man Edition versions of the Galaxy S6 will cost, or which markets will get them. It’s likely the phone will be available at least in South Korea, considering that Samsung used its local Facebook page to release the teaser image below.
