Precog Samsung Takes a Pre-Emptive Swipe at the iPhone 6

By Gerald Lynch on at

Considering Samsung's apparently been tapped up for chip manufacturing duties on the iPhone 6, it comes as no surprise that it may have a mole or two that's aware of Apple's smartphone plans for the year. What's more surprising is that Samsung's already slinging mud at Apple's next device, before it's even officially been announced.

"You know that thing you've been waiting on for like two years, and how it's supposed to be awesome and how it's going to blow your mind?", says the advert's narrator. "Well, it's been here the entire time - but maybe you just like waiting."

That 'thing' is the iPhone 6's supposedly-larger screen sizes. It's said to come in two different sized models, a 4.7-inch edition and a 5.5-incher. And Samsung is quick to point out that it's Galaxy line has long offered larger screens than the current iPhones have, with the Galaxy S5 sporting a 5.1-ich display. There's more separating a Galaxy phone and an iPhone than just screen size, but you can't help but feel Samsung will be on the money here when it comes to Apple inveitably promoting the iPhone 6 like there's never been a phone bigger than 4-inches before.
