OnePlus mocks Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra price, announces special discount on OnePlus 11 in exchange for Samsung phones

Samsung's Ultra models are much higher spec-ed than OnePlus 11 flagships and do not belong to that segment.

  • OnePlus has mocked the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra price as it was announced.
  • OnePlus USA has also taken a dig at Apple in one of its tweets.
  • OnePlus 11 is scheduled to launch in India and worldwide on February 7th.

OnePlus, which is gearing up to launch the OnePlus 11 in India on February 7th, has taken multiple digs at Samsung and the steep Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra price.  In a series of tweets wherein even Apple has not been spared, OnePlus has gone as far as offering a $200 extra trade-in credit for those exchanging a Samsung Galaxy phone for the upcoming OnePlus 11 5G in the US.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra prices were revealed earlier today, starting at Rs 1,24,999 in India and $1,199 (over Rs 98,000) in the US. The India starting price is a Rs 15,000 bump over the Galaxy S22 Ultra starting price from last year. Meanwhile, a recent report indicated the OnePlus 11 5G is expected to be priced at Rs 54,999 for the 12GB+256GB storage variant. You can check out the Twitter thread below for the banter.

OnePlus has also mocked Samsung for bringing a 200MP primary camera on the Ultra model but not including a charger in the box. The company has also lashed out at the Galaxy S23 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra’s same design, besides tweeting that they are good with just watching movies on phones, not making them.

OnePlus apparently has an explanation for why Samsung phones are called Galaxy. “Why do they call it the Galaxy? Astronomical pricing.” OnePlus USA also rhetorically said, “In what Galaxy are you paying $1199 for ‘Ultra‘?” Ironically, in the past, Samsung has been releasing advertisements taking a dig at its closest competitor, Apple.
