LG Makes Fun of Samsung with Huge Times Square Billboard

Samsung's marketing team certainly isn't shy about making fun of the competition. The company has a whole series of commercials based around taking shots at Apple and its fans. Not even the struggling BlackBerry is safe. Only fair, then, that Samsung should get as good as it gives. The company is set to announce a brand new Galaxy S4 today and LG isn't about to let the whole day be all about Samsung.

 

Right above Samsung's Galaxy S4 teaser ad in Times Square, LG has put up an almost identical ad that points out that its own Optimus G is already available. Samsung's been running some ads themed around the number 4 in an effort to drum up support for the upcoming launch. LG's ad smugly notes that the Optimus G is 'here 4 you now.'

Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S4 tonight at 7pm Eastern. Though there's been plenty of leaks, the company has kept fairly quiet about the device and its specs. Recent rumors have suggested a 4.99-inch display, 2GB of RAM, a brand new Samsung Exynos 5 processor featuring two quad-core clusters, and a PowerVR SGX544MP3 triple-core GPU.

Stay tuned and we'll bring you the latest news from New York City as it happens.
