Last week, a rumour surfaced online indicating that Samsung might soon unveil a limited edition Marvel Universe super-hero series Galaxy S6 Edge+ Ant-Man. Now, giving credence to report the company has formally unveiled the aforementioned device in China.
The new Galaxy S6 Edge+ Ant-Man series is now available on e-commerce site T-mall for a whopping ¥5887 (around $928/€845/Rs.60,552).
However, the new Galaxy S6 Edge+ Ant-Man series is not that different compared to the original model. It just comes with Ant-Man themed package, Ant-Man Wallpaper and a protective back case with super-hero's image engraving. There is no custom wire-less charger.

The Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man series, which was released earlier this year had numerous custom features. It came with the gold hued Iron Man's trademark armoured head mask insignia engraved on the rear-side. The phone package contained matching wireless charger, identical to the power source (Arc Reactor) we see on the chest of the armour suited Avenger.
We believe that Galaxy Edge+ Ant-Man series as claimed by T-mall is not the official Samsung-Marvel product as it is only limited to China.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man series was far more expensive and was made available in select developed markets of America, Europe and Asia.
Samsung is yet to release an official statement with regard to the launch of Galaxy S6 Edge+ Ant-Man series. Watch this space for more updates.
