In one of the most embarrassing cases of spelling mistakes, smartphone giant Samsung is the latest to cause a stir with a billboard displaying ' the penis, mightier than the finger '.

Samsung apparently tried to get creative with the original idiom 'the pen is mightier than the sword', but brought in one of the most awkward phrase by itself, courtesy- lack of one space between the two words.

According to Channel24, the billboard was put up in Egypt, Pakistan, Kenya and France.

Samsung is yet to comment on the matter, the report added.
