Samsung advertises the Galaxy S21 by tweeting with an iPhone, oops!

Samsung has been caught in the act of using iPhone again. A few hours before the Unpacked conference dedicated to the new Galaxy S21s, the South Korean brand has indeed published a tweet using an Apple-stamped smartphone. Underneath the post, you can read the annoying mention “Twitter for iPhone”.

This Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 4 p.m. (Paris time), Samsung will finally announce the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra during an online presentation. The manufacturer will take advantage of the conference to lift the veil on the Galaxy Buds Pro, new wireless headphones with active noise reduction, and the Galaxy Smart Tags, bluetooth beacons for locating a lost object.

In order to raise the tension in the run-up to the conference, Samsung has released a tweet on his official American account, report our colleagues from Mac Rumors. The publication asks fans of the brand about their expectations of the Galaxy S21. In a survey, the manufacturer asks what are the most anticipated innovations of this new generation: photography, design, software ecosystem or performance.

On the same subject: the technical sheets of the Galaxy S21 were still leaked the day before the presentation

Samsung tweeted again with an iPhone

Just below the tweet, a specific mention that the post was published by an iPhone. An employee in charge of managing Samsung’s social networks visibly uploaded the post with a smartphone designed by Apple. We imagine that a community manager has inadvertently used his personal iPhone rather than going through planning software.

Anyway, the tweet with “Twitter for iPhone” was quickly deleted by Samsung US. But the damage was done. Many netizens have taken screenshots of the South Korean brand’s new dumpling. It is also far from the first time that Samsung accidentally uses an iPhone to promote its own phones. In 2018, the firm notably tweeted an ad for the Galaxy Note 9 with an iPhone. A few months later, history repeated itself: Samsung was tweeting with an iPhone to promote the Galaxy A9.
