India general manager
took a dig at rival Realme and called the upcoming
smartphone a “creep”.
recently confirmed that the company’s next flagship would be the Realme X3 which will be launched on June 25.
Responding to a Twitter user, Poco’s Manmohan tweeted, “Which one would you choose? X2 with the super"smooth" mode or X3 with the super"creep"mode? Why jump on a bandwagon when the train is already here? Remain #SmoothAF [SIC].” The “SmoothAF” hashtag is meant for the Poco X2 smartphone.

This is not the first time that Manmohan tried to make fun of Realme on Twitter. Manmohan has always claimed that Realme is in some way inspired by Poco when it comes to marketing, at least. Recently, he had shared a video taking on arch-rival Realme’s recent smartphone Realme 6 Pro. The video which at the outset appears to be a mere comparison between Realme 6 Pro and Poco X2 goes on to make fun of Realme. It suggests how Realme got inspired by Poco X2 and launched a phone with similar specs (Realme 6 Pro) but still failed at offering a better device in terms of processor, cooling technology and pricing.
In another instance, when Realme launched India’s first 5G-enabled smartphone, Manmohan had tweeted a photo soon after the launch of Realme X50 Pro which implied that users in India do not need 5G support yet. “Now that we have your attention. Just letting you know - we're here to give you everything you need, nothing you don't,” tweeted Manmohan.
In another incident, Realme's chief marketing officer Francis Wang 'accused' Poco of cheating. "Cheating is not right, in case customers understand the difference between fast charging standards," said Wang in a tweet.
