It’s obviously a big day for Apple but as usual rival tech firms are taking the opportunity to engage in some light trolling. This time Huawei has mocked Apple’s battery life with a juice van.
Fitted with charging sockets to top up your device, the van was spotted on Regent Street this morning and made a stop right outside Apple’s flagship store.
The van which was festooned with the words “Huawei JU%CE that lasts” was offering a selection of drinks, none of which contained any Apple.
Customers could pay for their drinks by posting on Twitter with the hashtag #HigherIntelligence. Drinks on offer included “Huawei Supercharged”, “OK GO!’ and “Vitamin Max”.
Huawei is due to release a new phone on the October 16 this year, and will no doubt be hoping people will consider it instead of Apple’s iPhone.
The Chinese company recently passed Apple to be the second largest smartphone manufacturer globally. Samsung still occupies the top spot in spite of a recent slump in sales.
Apple sits at number three on the list with 21 per cent of the global smartphone market. Huawei has seen large growth recently with 40 per cent growth year-on-year.
