See what happens when Samsung tries to sell Galaxy phones at iPhone 6s queue
While thousands of Apple enthusiasts queued outside an Apple Store in London hoping lay their hands on their much-awaited iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus darlings today, guess who showed up? No friend, it wasn’t Steve Jobs — Samsung showed up!
Of course it wasn’t J.K. Shin that turned up for the show. The big CEO didn’t have to leave the comfort of his spacious office at the top floor of a big building in Korea to see an annual Apple event, members of the company’s marketing team were there to rep the Samsung flag.
TheInquirer reports that several people were seen parading outside a London Apple Store carrying huge banners with large pictures of Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge plus. The fans who were already queued in the lines waiting for their dear iOS devices nearly didn’t even bat an eye.
Samsung was said to have pulled another stunt at Regent Street where the phone maker handed out blue-colored pillows and blankets that were boldly inscribed with the hashtag “#NextIsNow.” The color tone on the gifts matches the kind of blue dresses Apple Store staffers do wear and many Apple enthusiasts present gladly fell for the hook without knowing what and who was behind the hashtag.
Here’s a Samsung Galaxy S III commercial trolling Apple fans in 2013:
The Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus flagships were released across 12 countries today. Customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK and the USA can place their orders right now via the Apple website or at brick and mortar retail outlets in their various countries.
