Xiaomi India chief Manu Kumar Jain on Tuesday trolled its rival Realme by calling it a copycat brand and also shared a comic video. This is not the first time that both the companies clashed and got into an argument.
Earlier this month Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India CEO again started an argument by calling its Rival company Realme a copycat brand. He tweet reads, “Funny! A copy-cat brand mocks us. Later this brand brings ads & some ppl start blaming us. Most brands push ads but only Xiaomi is bashed. Because we’ve been transparent about our business model. If any journalist wants to understand our internet business, I’m happy to talk!”
Further adding fuel to this Head of Online Partner Sales at Xiaomi India shared a video via its Twitter account humiliating Realme.
