Samsung has directly attacked Apple’s iPhone 5 in a US newspaper ad campaign as tensions escalate between the two smartphone giants.
According to SFGate, the already controversial ad features the headline “It doesn’t take a genius” above a photograph of the front of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 smartphone alongside the back of Apple’s iPhone 5.
The ad then lists a number of technical specifications where Samsung’s phone is more powerful than Apples, followed by the tagline “the next big thing is already here”.
