"Here's a power bank. You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei"
Huawei is trolling Apple by giving out free power banks to those queueing for the latest iPhones.
According to CNET, Chinese phone company Huawei has been trolling Apple by handing out free power banks to people queueing for the latest iPhone.
Recently, Apple’s latest iPhones were released – iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, with the iPhone XR to be released next month.
Although the announcement of the new phones received lukewarm excitement, Apple fans still queued up to get their hands on the latest iOS devices.
Android competitors Huawei decided to take the opportunity to troll their smartphone rivals.
In Singapore, Huawei representatives were seen handing out 10,000 mAh Huawei Supercharge power banks to people queuing for the latest iPhone outside the Apple Store.
Huawei claimed the company simply wanted to “offer respite from the weather and gruelling wait.”
On the packaging, Huawei cheekily wrote, “here’s a power bank. You’ll need it. Courtesy of Huawei” – taking a dig at the iPhone XS’ inferior battery capacity.
Huawei’s flagship smartphone, the P20 Pro has a 4,000 mAh battery, compared to the iPhone XS’s 2,658 mAh battery.
On the other side of the world, Huawei was also seen trolling Apple in the UK. Near an Apple Store in London, Huawei representatives were seen in a van giving a way free fruit juice and offering charging stations with “no traces of Apple.”
