    Iron Man phone sold for US$91k

    THE Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition is already commanding a premium price of US$1,079 (S$1,450) at launch, but one Chinese customer was willing to go to pay even more.

    According to Business Korea, the model was sold for a whopping US$91,635 at an auction. If you do the maths, that is almost 85 times the official price. It received over 92,400 bids.

    This particular phone attracted an overwhelming interest because it has the serial number "66". The number six is auspicious in Chinese culture.

    What about one with the serial number "88"? We reckon the winning bid would be even higher.
