Apple is not new to trolling. Smartphone companies have been trolling Apple for years. Only recently, Samsung mocked iPhones “features” in a bunch of YouTube videos. Later, we saw Xaiomi getting things spiced up. And now Huawei is following the same footsteps.

But instead of taking it to social media, Huawei did a little fieldwork. The Chinese manufacturer handed free power banks to people who were queuing outside the Singapore Apple Store. And not just that, the portable charger box stated “Here’s a power bank. You’ll need it. Courtesy of Huawei.”

According to a company representative, the gesture was to “offer respite from the weather and grueling wait,” CNET reports. Apple devices are infamous for having low battery issues. Huawei field representatives offered more than 200 Huawei Supercharge power banks which have a capacity of 10,000 mAh.

At the gather round September 9th event, Apple unveiled three new iPhones namely iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and a relatively cheaper model iPhone Xr. Many Apple fans were quite disappointed since the new models didn’t reflect any major change from the iPhone X.

Seemingly, Huawei went even further and posted a bunch of tweets mocking the Apple event. Huawei also has an upcoming event in London on October 16th. The company will unveil Huawei Mate 20 series and Apple AirPods-like FreeBuds 2.

While we don’t how the iPhone Xs buyers reacted to the Huawei stunt, the company surely has made its phone users infuriated. Their anger seems legit since those “gifted power banks” cost up to SD80 (approx. $59) per unit.
