After last week’s reveal of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition, there was some speculation as to whether it would reach South African shores. Thankfully, Samsung has revealed its plans to start shipping the unit, which actually be available to purchase later this month. You can visit the official Samsung website, or view the included press release amended to the post for further details.
If you’ve been holding out on getting a new smartphone and were eyeing out something along the lines of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, then there’s a version of the device that may just suit you. It’s called the Galaxy S7 Edge Injustice Edition. Along with the obvious Batman logo in gold on the rear, many of the metal finishes are also emblazoned in gold, with a matching Android theme.
The device has a tie-in with the 3rd anniversary of the Warner Bros. game, Injustice: Gods Among Us. In addition to the phone itself, owners will also receive a Gear VR headset included in the contents, along with a gold-plated Batarang and a rubber, Batman armour-inspired case. The only downside here is that availability is limited to Korea, Japan, China, Singapore, Russia and Latin America, although I’m sure we’ll find a good few on eBay soon after the scheduled June release date. There is a plan to expand these countries in the coming months, assumedly on the back of good sales in the above-mentioned markets.
In a statement regarding the release, Younghee Lee, Samsung Electronics’ executive VP of global marketing, had this to say: “We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and offer a special edition of Galaxy S7 Edge for fans of Injustice: Gods Among Us. Samsung always seeks to provide the best mobile gaming experience for its users, and this partnership reinforces our commitment to the game’s fans.”
