That didn't stop Huawei from pulling a funny release date stunt for those who queued in front of Singapore's Apple store. Company reps approached people there to lend them "respite from the weather and grueling wait." That respite came in the form of power banks, complete with "Here's a power bank. You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei." writing on the box.
Needless to say, now Huawei fans are getting pissed off, chiming in from the bleachers that the company better give them the $70 power bank, instead of gifting 200 Apple fans with it. You just can't win this thing, but those who were napping at the queue and woke up to a brand new power bank? Sweet.
