The dispute between Samsung and Apple is old, and it is also often revealed in the advertisements run by both brands. A new piece involving the Galaxy Z Flip 4 reinforces the rivalry, in a publication made on Samsung’s social networks.
- Apple launches iPhone 14 as the biggest evolution of the last five years
- Podcast: iPhone 14 and all about the Apple event
Not coincidentally, the advertisement was posted on the same day as the launch of the iPhone 14 line. During the story, the main character Elena rejects the Samsung device by stating that she “loves her cell phone” — in this case, the English phrase “I love my phone” makes the last word sound very similar to “iPhone”.
Even so, she becomes obsessed with the cell phone that folds, and starts to visualize the format in various objects and everyday actions. Between books, doors and chairs, everything reminds me of him.
In the end, Elena even “forces” her own cell phone to try to get it to bend. Ultimately, she uses her device to go to Samsung’s website and buy a Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Apple may introduce foldable in the future
At yesterday’s event (7), Apple presented four new smartphone models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. All of them feature a rigid screen format, without major distinctions from previous generations.
However, rumors have already been circulated regarding an alleged foldable iPhone. According to leaker Ming-Chi Kuo, this model would have an 8-inch screen when opened — larger than the 7.6 inches of the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Anyway, the launch of an “iPhone Fold” is still a relatively distant plan from Apple. Some insiders point out that the device will arrive in 2023 or 2024, but Kuo doesn’t believe it will be revealed until 2025.
Therefore, other technical characteristics of the smartphone are still unknown. It is expected to bring advanced performance components and cameras, and rumors also point out that the brand would be testing a compact model with horizontal fold – that is, to compete with the Galaxy Z Flip 4 itself.
