Samsung and Marvel have revealed their global partnership in the middle of 2014. The collaboration will allow the Korean tech powerhouse to showcase new devices with exclusive marvel content. The partnership would also allow Samsung to create tech concepts for films such as the soon-to-be-released “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and other upcoming Marvel flicks.

The featured tech devices on the film paraded on the 2015 CES event in Las Vegas, which include the already released Galaxy Note Edge and other devices which technically do not yet exist in the real world. According to Techno Buffalo, Samsung has created devices for the Marvel character “Tony Stark” which ranges from smartphone to smartwatch with futuristic concepts.

During the press event at the tech show, guests were welcomed by life-size statues of Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor. But what really captured their attention were the Samsung-designed smartwatch, Bluetooth ear pieces, and even a concept hologram phone with fingerprint scanner for use in the movie. Even the Galaxy Note Edge had its share of the limelight during the said low-key event.

Additionally, the Note Edge was described in the event as “tomorrow’s technology available today” with its advanced curved super AMOLED display. But in recent report by CNET, Samsung’s curved smartphone is having a fierce competition with LG’s newly launched G Flex2 which sports an arched form factor.

Not only that, LG has also given a glimpse of a new smartphone concept that has two curved edges. The display at the 2015 CES event revealed the dual-curved device concept which was said to come with 720p resolution and a 6-inch HD plastic OLED display. But besides the impressive look of the two-curved edge smartphone, LG would have to prove the usefulness of such advanced curvature.

Finally, some hope that the featured gadgets in the film will soon come to market, while the existing Galaxy Note Edge costs from US$840 to US$946 and is also available in Australia for AU$1249. Samsung’s devices will hit the big screen via the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in the United States on May 1.
