According to a screenshot posted by tipster Abhishek Yadav, OnePlus India’s Twitter account posted a tweet promoting the all-new OnePlus 9 series of smartphones. The tweet was posted using an iPhone. Needless to say, OnePlus’ social media team deleted the tweet immediately but not before some eagle-eyed Twitter users had spotted the embarrassing mistake.
OnePlus 9 series has been launched in India this week earlier and comprises OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9R. Not just that the Chinese tech brand has also launched its first smartwatch in the country.
Prior to the launch, OnePlus didn’t waste too much time in taking a dig at Apple. Showcasing the wireless charging prowess of the new OnePlus 9 series.
In one tweet, OnePlus posted a 45-second clip in which it shows the OnePlus 9 Pro 5G and “Another” Phone, which is the iPhone.
The video starts with two models being plugged into chargers starting at a 1% charging level.
In an interval of 15 minutes it shows that while OnePlus has charged 35%, iPhone is at 27%. The next check it makes is at a 30 minutes interval, where the OnePlus 9 Pro 5G has charged 71% and the iPhone is at 53%. Then, after about 43 minutes, the OnePlus 9 device reaches 100% charging value, while the iPhone is at 72%.
It is then at the end of the video, it can be seen that the OnePlus 9 Pro 5G was placed on a wireless charger, while the iPhone was being charged via standard Lighting cable.
“Some things are worth waiting for. Charging isn’t one of them. Charge faster, No strings attached,” is the message given to viewers at the end. Clearly, iPhone’s slow charging doesn’t seem to be an issue for OnePlus’ social media team!
