This is especially true in Singapore as Apple fans have started lining up yesterday (20 September) at the Apple store along Orchard Road for the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, and this gave Huawei a cheeky idea to promote their product. 11% of those who told the Harris pollsters that they were going to upgrade their current iPhone with the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, changed their mind after being reminded about the price of those models.
I don't have big hands and have resisted the trend of bigger phones as much as I possibly could over the past few years.
The big jump in iPhone cameras came a generation earlier with the iPhone 6S, when Apple went from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels in resolution. The iPhone XS Max is priced at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB option.
With eight cores in the A12's neural processing unit (over its predecessor's two), the iPhone XS is theoretically capable of 5 trillion operations per second compared to the iPhone X's 600 billion operations per second, Apple claims.
The iPhone XR starts at $749, up $50 from last year's $699 for the iPhone 8.
USA -based Qualcomm, the world's largest mobile phone chipmaker, has in turn accused Apple of patent infringement. The Pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy S9 offer a similar feature, too.
According to reports, as many as 200 power bans were handed out to iPhone fans in Singapore.
As for whether he would ever consider using a Huawei phone in the future, Zheng said: "Maybe one day, when Apple has really screwed themselves up with their hardware, I may make the switch", he added. That version of the dock will work with "all Apple Watch models and iPhone models with lightning connectors".
Look for our review of the iPhone X and XS Max in the later part of next week.
Huawei's flagship certainly offers supreme specs but it also arrives at a very high price with this device starting from around £799.
