Samsung recently made a PR gaffe when the marketing team unintentionally tweeted about the Galaxy Unpacked event from an iPhone. The post was taken down in short order, however.

In a hilarious PR gaffe, Samsung's marketing team unintentionally posted a promotional tweet about the Galaxy Unpacked event from an iPhone. While the tweet was taken down quickly, AppleInsider managed to get a screenshot. 

Samsung's US Twitter handle told users that they were "working hard to bring you exciting news." Unfortunately, the Twitter for iPhone stamp showed that this piece of news, at least, was brought to users from a competing Apple device.

Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked gaffe isn't the first time we've seen users getting called out for promoting competing brands from iDevices. A few years ago, Russian socialite and Samsung brand ambassador Ksenia Sobchuk was sued by Samsung for nearly $2 million for allegedly appearing in public on a TV show, with an iPhone X. The current gaffe was in-house, evidently by Samsung staff. 

While Samsung might’ve tweeted about Galaxy Unpacked from an iPhone, the event - and the Galaxy S21 Ultra - seem to be genuine steps forward. The 5nm Exynos 2100, with a Mail G78 GPU, together with a 120 Hz 6.8-in display promise a premium gaming and media consumption experience, while S Pen support augments productivity. 

Not everyone at Samsung appears to think so, but the S21 Ultra looks like a solid Android-based alternative to the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
