Realme India's CEO Was Spotted Posting On Twitter With An iPhone
Karamchand Rameshwar - Nov 18, 2019
After Huawei CEO & OnePlus' ambassador, Realme's CEO Madhav Sheth also got caught using an iPhone in his latest Tweet about Realme smartphones.
- Nokia 2.3 Announced With Dual Rear Cameras & Two Days Battery Life
- iQOO Neo 855 Racing Edition Goes Official With Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC
- Motorola One Hyper With 32MP Pop-Up Camera & 45W HyperCharge Launched
Realme India's CEO Madhav Sheth uses an iPhone to post new information about the brand's smartphones on Twitter.
In his Tweet on 16 November, Sheth introduced the next operating system update for Realme 3 and Realme 3i. However, at the end of the message was the line Twitter for iPhone, which clearly indicates that the device used to post the Tweet was an iPhone. Currently, this tweet has been deleted but many websites have promptly saved the image and shared it widely.
It is unclear at the moment whether this tweet was posted by Madhav Sheth himself or an assistant assigned to manage his account. However, it clearly has a negative effect on the company's branding. Some comments on Twitter suggest that this shows that Realme CEO does not even believe in his product. Realme has been getting massive success in the Indian market. According to Counterpoint Research, the brand was the fourth biggest brand in terms of smartphone shipments during Q3 this year in the country. It is also said to be one of the world's fastest-growing smartphone brands and ranked 7th in the global ranking.
This is not the first time Android phone brand ambassadors have made the same mistake. Last month, Ren Zhengfei, Huawei CEO was caught pulling iPad out of luggage when conducting airport security procedures. In May, he also admitted his admiration for Apple and Steve Jobs, even buying iPhones as gifts for family members on every business trip abroad.
Last year, Gal Gadot, the star of the Fast and Furious series and Huawei’s brand ambassador in the US, used an iPhone to post promotional videos for Mate 10 and P20 Pro. Earlier, Bollywood star Anushka Sharma shared a number of photos taken from Pixel 2XL on personal Twiter with an iPhone.
