Samsung is teasing a new Batman themed Galaxy S7, but as far as we’re able to tell, it does not have any correlation to the recent Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film. Instead, the new custom phone is being released as a promotional effort for the mobile version of the DC fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The new phone was teased by Samsung via their Twitter Account, with a Batman symbol over a blank phone with the words “coming soon” written across it. The caption to the post says: “Coming soon: A new device for the battle against the Gods Among Us. @InjusticeGame @WB_Games @DCComics.”
It may seem odd that Samsung would release a device to promote the Injustice video game now, considering the game has been available on every platform -including Android- since 2013. Though with recent rumors of a sequel to the game being developed and E3 approaching faster than The Flash, some new content and an update wouldn’t be too farfetched. Not to mention, Suicide Squad, Justice League and other DC films coming soon, it’s very likely that the mobile version of the game will be getting some more content.
Fans haven’t gotten a look at the phone quite yet, but some time ago, Samsung released an Iron Man themed Galaxy phone to promote Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron that came with an arc reactor-themed charging station, keypad skins and wallpapers, topped off with an outer shell coated in red and gold so it’s very likely that this device will have Batman versions of the same features, encased in a black and grey shell and a Batman-themed charging station.
An official release date has not yet been given, so keep the phone you already have close to you know when to pre-order this new mobile device!
