onight clearly belongs to Samsung. The company is set to reveal its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S IV, during tonight's "Unpacked" event in New York City. But according to Reuters, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, had some choice words for Samsung and the Android platform.

Claiming to use Google's own data, Schiller told Reuters the majority of Android users are still on older versions of the mobile OS. The Apple VP claims varied, customized versions of Android -- like those used by Amazon -- are the root cause of the problem.

"With their own data, only 16 percent of Android users are on [a] year-old version of the operating system," said Schiller. "Over 50 percent are still on software that is two years old. A really big difference."

But Schiller didn't stop there. He also pointed to a rumor the Samsung Galaxy S IV will launch with an older version of Android, while "more than half" of iOS users have updated to the latest version of Apple's mobile OS.

"And that extends to the news we are hearing this week that the Samsung Galaxy S IV is being rumored to ship with an OS that is nearly a year old," said Schiller. "Customers will have to wait to get an update."
