Ah yes, iPhone 11: None of the new features you wanted, and 40% less attractive.

So in other words it was just some fake news pushed out by Apple, and it's hype and propaganda crew, to try and stall the Note 10 sales, or some other Android smartphones. Now if it's missing pencil support and reverse wireless charging. Then the 11 pro's, are really not worth the upgrade, or even the new pro.

Lol Apple doesn’t need to push out fake news to stall Note 10 sales. Samsung made a crappy overpriced phone and did it to themselves hahaha

Yeah, sucks that Samsung greatly compensated the note 7 owners. And surely, not one iphone has ever caught fire or exploded.. Nice try troll :D

"by Apple, and it's hype and propaganda crew, to try and stall the Note 10 sales," Wait what :D you are talking about phone which will sell around 10 million overall. Do you really think Apple cares about Note 10 sales at all?

Lol, Apple don’t need to stall any Android flagship sales, most Android users don’t even buy Flagships.

Reverse wireless charging is useless,, no one will put other phones or even a watch or airpods on their premium phone. A mini pencil support could be good but phone displays are very small to make the best out of pencil. It's more suitable for the ipads

I use reverse charging at least once a week on my Galaxy Buds so your argument is invalid.

Stall Note 10 sales? Even Galaxies S10 didn’t make as the best selling phone every quarter. Its always the Xr that tops and A series of Samsung comes next.

The Apple hype is thick and fake. Nothing new.

The Apple hype is alive and well in your mind, that’s why you comment on every single Apple article.

Do you sleep at nights or you are so obsessed with apple that you can’t even close your eyes without seeing that gorgeous logo in your sick mind?

Wow! I saw this news about 2 hours ago reported by Kuo! If true, I’m skipping this crap upgrade.

For a company who is responsible for some great looking devices ... This thing was designed by a guy named Budd Tuggly! Who thought this look was a good idea? I'm sure the phone will be good. But, what a camera module!

Huawei Mate 20 Pro had the same square camera module on the back. Why didn’t you make a fuss when it was released?

1. Huawei did it first (No innovation there). 2. Huawei's photo abilities are superior (And will probably always be). 3. Not overpriced. (Profit, profit, profit) My just be me, but it seems Apple is playing catch up. Again. Time to humble up, and expect the lower sales. Btw, I'm content with my S9+ and dual cameras.

If you're so content with your S9, then why do you obsessively follow and comment on every single Apple article? I don't think you're as content as you claim.

Maybe the same reason you troll every Samsung article.

What’s wrong sissy, the Note 10+ isn’t enough to keep your mind off of Apple?

Im no huge fan of the Mate 20, but at least they had the sense to center the giant camera module.
