However, after the contract with Samsung expired,BLACKPINK suffered a wave of criticism by posting on social media with the members using iPhones. At the time, BLACKPINK member Jisoo said, “Wow, I barely changed it with a selfie photo taken with the iPhone 13. Regarding the new phone, cute case”.

On the other hand, V, a Samsung model, is still using the Galaxy. V’s past selfies, taken in the same place as the photo that ignited the romance rumor, included a smartphone with three cameras arranged vertically and side by side. When looking at the rear design, it is assumed that this is a model of the ‘Galaxy S22’ series.

As BTS has been working as a Galaxy model for Samsung for a long time, it seems that he is using Samsung products in real life. Samsung also is active in collaborating with BTS for marketing with the release of ‘Galaxy S20 BTS Edition’. BTS also appeared as a video at the Galaxy S21 unpack event in February last year. Furthermore, the purple color, which symbolizes BTS, has become the representative element for Galaxy products. It is also showing the color of “Bora Purple” in the fourth generation series of the recently released foldable phone “Galaxy Z“.

However, there are rumors stating BTS can also transfer to Apple’s iPhone after the Samsung contract expires. An official from the telecommunications industry said, “BLACKPINK’s contract with Samsung has expired for two years, so it is not something to criticize the use of Apple products. Other ambassadors will also be able to use their preferred personal smartphones depending on the contract situation.”
