The company didn't mention other markets, which might leave many Iron Man fans disappointed. The price of the S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition wasn't unveiled, but it's probably higher than the price of a regular S6 edge 64 GB.
Samsung said nothing about an Iron Man edition of the Galaxy S6, which might mean that the curved S6 edge is the only one that's getting the superhero treatment.

After 70 years of technological advancements have lead us to a point where pocket-sized devices now pack enough computing power to put to shame supercomputers of old. A recently published infographic by Experts Exchange shows some intriguing comparisons between supercomputers, consoles, smart watches and smartphones.
For example, the current top dog on the supercomputer front, the Chinese Tianhe-2 is capable of a staggering 33.86 PFLOPS (peta floating-point operations per second), which would take 18,400 Sony PlayStation 4s consoles to match.
The Samsung Galaxy S6, which at the moment is the smartphone with the highest raw performance, is more than five times as powerful as the PlayStation 2, which was released in 2000. More impressively though, the 138g phone's 34.8 GFLOPS are 2,900,000 times as much as the 12,000 FLOPS the IBM 704 room-sized supercomputer could produce back in 1954. Check the Infographic below (Click to Enlarge).
Today, the first Press Photo (above) of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has been leaked on twitter, The Photo showcase the device in a light and dark camouflage color schemes, which are likely designed to further enhance its already rugged appearance with AT&T logo on the back.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, model number SM-G890A, is said to pack a generous 3,500mAh battery. The latter is significantly larger than the 2,600mAh unit of the Originial Galaxy S6 SM-G920.
Battery capacity aside, we can reasonably expect that Samsung Galaxy S6 Active will keep the same top notch specs as the Galaxy S6. They include 14nm Exynos 7420 SoC, 5.1" QHD Super AMOLED display, 16MP main camera, and 5MP front-facing unit.
