In a ceremony on April 16, Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S6 smartphone in Tehran, Digiato reported on Thursday.

The event, held at Iran's newest electronics mall Charsou Bazaar, was attended by journalists and dignitaries, including the Korean embassy's Ambassador Song Woong-Yeob and Commercial Attaché Kim Sung Wook.

The Seoul headquartered company has also announced it has struck a deal with MTN-Irancell, Iran's second largest mobile phone operator by number of subscribers.

Samsung said it is offering the phones with the 4G LTE SIM cards to "enhance user experience by the use of fourth generation mobile internet." The new USIM LTE enabled card will allow users to talk via VOIP services and other high-speed internet activities whilst on the move.   

Based on the recent contract between Samsung and MTN-Irancell, the clients of Galaxy S6 will receive special offers of free internet access for a yearlong as well as an MTN-Irancell SIM for free. The offered special packages will only support Samsung products that are legally imported and distributed through official channels.

This is not the first cooperative contract between the two companies. During summer last year, Samsung also cooperated with MTN-Irancell when releasing the Galaxy S5 in the country. Last week, Samsung has also provided MTN-Irancell subscribers with software by which they are able to connect to 4G LTE services.
