New Delhi: Xiaomi and Realme’s top comrades are fighting tooth and nail. The war of words has now further heated up with the chief marketing officer (CMO) of Realme India and Europe Francis Wong hitting back at Xiaomi’s Redmi business director Sneha Tainwala’s allegations on how the rival smartphone brand is copy pasting ideas.
In a tweet on August 18, Xiaomi’s Tainwala had alleged that rival Realme has copied the Xiaomi’s Mi Fan Festival. “Mi Fan Festival” >> “#CopyCat Fan Festival” It has now stopped being funny. Kitna copy karoge @MadhavSheth1 sir?” she said in the tweet while tagging Realme India and Europe CEO Madhav Sheth.
“Waise event page mock up bhijwaon – will save your team some time,” she went on to add in her tweet mocking the rival smartphone brand.
In response to her tweet, Realme’s Wong tweeted, “Sigh. Can’t believe this is coming out from a director of a proper brand. It’s time for everyone to focus on their own business. keep our mouth shut and let products speak.
