Xenia Sobchak was commissioned by Samsung to market their smartphones in Russia. The television presenter, journalist and politician was commissioned to use the smartphones in public. Under the terms of similar agreements between companies and influential people, they are usually not allowed to be seen in public with competing products, a rule Sobchak broke.
Reality TV presenter and politician Xenia Sobchak is the face of Samsung in Russia and is contracted to use a Samsung smartphone.
However, when she appeared in an interview, she was discovered with an iPhone X. She really tried to disguise it, but did not make it. The actress was seen with a piece of paper trying to hide the phone from view, but many people noticed that they soon promoted a widespread discussion about social media.
It should also be noted that this is not the first time that the actress uses the iPhone, she has been seen on several social occasions with the Apple phone.
The numerous sightings led to Samsung Sobchak suing for breach of contract. It is not known how much Sobchak was initially paid by Samsung, but it is likely that the claimed damages of the suit are much higher, including the penalties for the contract interruption.
Closer to home, Twitterati spotted actress Anushka Sharma, who promoted Google's Pixel 2XL with an iPhone. Sharma shared two photos of herself with a dog on Twitter tagged with Google India and the hashtag # TeamPixel and # Pixel2XL. "Look at this beautiful boy," she wrote. However, the tweet tagged itself as "Twitter via iPhone".
Ok, I do not even want to know what's going on, but it's hilarious https://t.co/sUuHVh4exw
