Yesterday, Apple held a big presentation where unveiled the smartphones iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, smartwatch Apple Watch Series 7 and tablets iPad 9 and iPad mini 6. Of course, this event could not be missed by Samsung, which is one of Apple's main competitors.
Tweaked During the presentation, Samsung left several caustic posts on its Twitter account, which although did not mention either Apple or iPhone 13, but it was clear who it was talking about.
Overall, Samsung mocked "innovations", on which Apple emphasized. Recall, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max were the manufacturer's first smartphones with displays with adaptive refresh rates up to 120 Hz. That said, the increased hertz is far from a novelty either for Samsung or for many other manufacturers. "We've been using 120 Hz for some time now", - said in Samsung's announcement.
Recall, 120Hz appeared in Galaxy S20 series in March 2020, although the feature did not include a variable refresh rate. The company later introduced "Adaptive Frequency panels" with Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G in August of the same year, and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra allows users to activate 120Hz at Quad HD+ resolution.
"Does anyone still have a sense of deja vu? Or is it just us?" - joked the South Korean giant.
Also, Samsung didn't miss the opportunity to recall that Apple still doesn't have a foldable smartphone, while it - does. "How much cooler would be if it could be folded in half?" - wrote Samsung representatives on social media.
