Samsung is Offering its Own Cleaning Cloth in Germany!
Now, it seems that the company’s biggest rival Samsung has taken it upon itself to take shots at Apple with an offer from the company, with Galaxy Club spotting a promotion in the Samsung members app that is giving away a free cleaning cloth to the first 1,000 people signing up for this offer.
The screenshot from the outlet shows that the cleaning cloth measures 20cm x 20cm, which means it is larger than the Apple offering. This is not the first instance of Samsung taking shots at Apple, with the company trolling Apple at times for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and the notch.
