Samsung trash-talks upcoming Apple iPhones with a 30-second YouTube video

Samsung's 30-second 'diss track' ends with two 2022 Galaxy flagship devices.

Why does Samsung repeatedly spend advertising and marketing money to trash-talk another brand? Honestly, we don’t know its reasons, but it’s a thing that keeps happening. 

It’s barely a couple of days since Apple announced its 7 September 2022 event, but Samsung U.S.’s official YouTube account was quick to act on the upcoming keynote. 

It uploaded a short 30-second clip about its Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy Z Flip4 5G handsets. The clip mentioned some of the Galaxy phones’ key features, while taking jabs at how these innovations aren’t available in Apple iPhones (like 108MP cameras and Space Zoom).

Is it unnecessary? Overcompensating? Or a legitimate critique of Apple’s incremental upgrades over the years? At any rate, it got a lippy smile out of us before we moved on to the next cat video.

For posterity’s sake, we also included a screenshot of the YouTube listing, in case Samsung chickens out like how it walked back on its in-box charger diss made just two years ago.
