According to leaked images, Samsung is planning to launch a Galaxy Note 7 Injustice Edition, similar to the variant that it released for the Galaxy S7 edge.
The Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition featured the iconic logo of Batman at the back, with the device designed with a gold-and-black palette. The physical home button, the camera bump at the back and the receiver are all gilded, with the rest of the device's body given a glossy black treatment. The smartphone also came with a gold-plated Batarang inside the box, a special case, a black Gear VR headset with vouchers, a Batman theme and a pre-installed copy of the mobile fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us with game credits.
The leaked images, sourced from Chinese social network Weibo, reveal that Samsung will be applying a similar treatment to the Galaxy Note 7 for the smartphone's Injustice Edition. The device will have the same gold-and-black theme for both its externals and its software, and will also likely have a pre-installed copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
There is speculation that the Galaxy Note 7 Injustice Edition will feature the specifications of 6 GB of RAM and internal storage of 128 GB, which is so far exclusive to Galaxy Note 7 devices released in China. The smartphone could also be featuring support for dual-SIM configurations.
It is not yet determined whether all the other inclusions on the purchase of the Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition will also be added for the Galaxy Note 7 Injustice Edition, as details on the device remain scarce aside from what could be seen on the leaked pictures. There is so far no information on when Samsung will be officially announcing the Galaxy Note 7 Injustice Edition, how much it will cost and in which markets it will be available, assuming that the leaked images are actually true.
When Samsung released the Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition, it came with a price tag of over $1,000. With the price of the Galaxy Note 7 already reaching close to that amount, expect the price of the smartphone's Injustice Edition to go well beyond $1,000.
In other news, a teardown carried out by iFixit on the Galaxy Note 7 revealed that the smartphone includes many modular components that can easily be replaced. However, repairs on the device are still difficult, though slightly easier compared with the Galaxy S7, due to the risk of cracking the glass on the device's front and back panels.
