Published

on

A few days back, Apple launched a polishing cloth priced $19 alongside the new MacBook Pro 14/16 and AirPods. Even after such higher pricing, Apple’s polishing cloth sold out entirely. Well, if you have a Galaxy S20 series phone in Germany, then here’s good news for you as Samsung bringing the cleaning cloth for free.

Recently, Samsung has also launched its own cleaning cloth, but it’s different from Apple as it has decided to give away the cleaning cloth for free to Galaxy S20 users in Germany. Currently, Samsung offering cleaning cloths to Galaxy S20 owners in Germany, while the giveaway quantity is 1000 pieces.

No doubt, Samsung may have made this strange decision to compete Apple but the effective scope of the activity is very limited because the activity of distributing cleaning cloths is the devices launched in Germany only, so it is not sure why Samsung did this.

At the moment, the gift of polishing cloth is available for Galaxy S20 series phone users in Germany, however, Samsung believes that possibly it is because this flagship phone is around to be used for two years. The company worried that these users will be affected by Apple’s new iPhone 13 series and polishing cloth.
