Apple has yet to announce the iPhone 6, but that isn’t stopping the competition from busting the company’s chops about the device.

In a new commercial published to Samsung’s YouTube account, the hardware manufacturer takes a shot at the rumored larger screen on Apple’s anticipated iPhone 6. Samsung, of course, points out that its Galaxy smartphones have always had larger screens, but that’s pretty much it.

I know Samsung is all about ridiculing Apple (especially after all the legal drama the two have been through over patents the last two years), but talking about anticipation for a competitor’s product seems like a waste of time and money. That said, I’m sure this won’t be the only Samsung commercial to make fun of the iPhone 6 as we get closer to September, which is when Apple typically announces new smartphones.

Check out the Samsung commercial embedded below and let us know what you think in the comments section.
