OnePlus launched the OnePlus 9 series in India on March 23. The company’s latest flagship smartphones go on sale in April. Ahead of the sale, the company continues to market various features of the 9 series. However, in once such instance, it chose to do so from an Apple iPhone.
A OnePlus India tweet is grabbing a lot of attention on social media. The tweet, which read “Describe the #OnePlus9Series using a movie name. Go!!”, has now been deleted. Reason? Because it was posted from an iPhone.

OnePlus, at the OnePlus 9 series launch event, took several shots at the iPhone for its slow charging speeds and other features. The company left no chance and made several references that showed the OnePlus 9 Pro as a superior device over the iPhone. However, netizens on Twitter got a chance to troll the company when the tweet was made using an iPhone. While this could be an innocent mistake from the social media agency handling the company’s account, it does give Twitter users a reason to joke and laugh.
