Samsung is among the firms that rushed to mock Apple a number of years in the past when the Cupertino-based tech big eliminated the headphone jack from the iPhone.
At that point, Samsung rolled out an advert known as “Growing up” and exhibiting what they claimed to be a smartphone person pissed off with all of the modifications made by Apple, together with how he was pressured to make use of a dongle as a result of the iPhone not featured a headphone jack.
The advert was humorous, there’s little doubt about that, particularly as the entire world was indignant with Apple eliminating the three.5mm audio connector, and it was seen as a promise Samsung would retain this characteristic in the long run.
But quick ahead to 2019 and right here’s Samsung doing just about the identical factor on the Galaxy Be aware10, the corporate’s newest and best which not encompasses a headphone jack both.
Looking again on the November 2017 advert, every thing appears to be like embarrassing now, doesn’t it?
Samsung clearly tight-lipped
And as a result of Samsung clearly doesn’t wish to be thought-about a follower, the corporate tried to one thing that it definitely isn’t happy with: delete the 2017 advert and hope no one notices it.
Unfortunately, the WWW caught Samsung doing the soiled factor, and now every thing is getting worse.
By the appears to be like of issues, Samsung eliminated the advert from its largest YouTube channels, however the video continues to be out there on others. And even when the corporate takes them down all over the place, count on different mirrors to floor in the approaching days, particularly as its modus operandi makes the headlines.
For the time being, Samsung simply prefers to stay tight-lipped on every thing, so we will’t anticipate what the corporate desires to do given it obtained caught attempting to delete that advert.
As I see it, the one approach to go proper now could be to deliver again the advert and recover from it, as everybody will neglect about this blunder in a few weeks anyway.
We embedded the video beneath, however don’t be shocked if it quickly finally ends up with a useless YouTube hyperlink.
