Samsung carries the Dark Knight's theme to the always-on display. It's pretty subtle.

The dialer is where the real nod to the Batphone takes place.

The theme extends to every crevice, including the Settings menu and notifications shade (shown).

Batman's famed logo is molded onto the back, of course.

Some regions will also get an all-black version of the Samsung Gear VR headset as part of the package.
