  • Samsung is running a new promotion in Germany that takes a jab at Apple's $19 cleaning cloth.
  • The company is giving away a free cleaning cloth to the first 1,000 people who sign up for the offer.
  • It remains to be seen if Samsung will expand the offer to other countries in the future.

Apple unveiled a ton of new products at its "Unleashed" event last month, including MacBook Pro models with M1 Pro and M1 Max processors. It also announced a $19 cleaning cloth to clean your Apple products.

Samsung has now launched a new promotion that takes aim at Apple's cleaning cloth. As spotted by the folks at Galaxy Club, the promotion is now live in the Samsung Members app in Germany. The first 1,000 users who sign up for the offer will receive a free cleaning cloth for their Galaxy phone.

Samsung says the "must-have" accessory measures 20 x 20cm in size, which makes it slightly larger in size than Apple's cleaning cloth. Just like any other microfiber cloth, you can also use the Samsung cleaning cloth to clean your PC monitor or tablet.

The promotion appears to be available only in Germany right now, and it isn't clear if Samsung plans to offer its cleaning cloth to users in other countries as well.

This isn't the first time that Samsung has taken a dig at Apple. Back in 2017, the company poked fun at the iPhone X's notch. It also made fun of Apple for removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from iPhones. However, just months later, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 10 series without a headphone jack.

Samsung had even mocked Apple last year for selling the iPhone 12 series without a charger in the box. It later deleted those posts and decided not to include chargers with its best Android phones to cut costs and also "help the environment."

  • Given Samsung's history, in 3 months they'll pretend this didn't happen and start selling their own 19 doll hair cloth.
  • In three years Apple will start selling folding phones and tell everyone it's the world's first.
  • Then they can tell everyone they are folding the phone wrong.
  • You can bet on that.
    Specially if they keep that m0ron of a CEO for much longer.
  • The Apple folding phone will be the most advanced Apple foldable device ever, with 100% more functionality than any Apple foldable before, and it will have a gift in the box: introducing Apple Air Air, powered by Air Inside 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤫
  • ROTFL!
    Once again apple is testing customers synapses;D
