Huawei has become the second largest smartphone brand in the world, pushing popular brand Apple down to number three.
According to the chart created by Counterpoint Research for its monthly market sales, the Chinese tech manufacturer took the lead as the second largest mobile brand in June 2017 and July 2017 — though the increase for the latter month is only by a margin.
A woman in China might’ve just won the 2016 “hustler of the year” award.
A blog was recently published on Tian Ya Yi Du, a popular blogging platform in China, by user “Proud Qiaoba”, who tells a story of a woman who bought a house after selling 20 iPhone 7s that her 20 boyfriends bought for her.
Despite heavy criticisms of the new iPhone 7, it seems that many crazed Apple fans are still out there.
Hundreds of fans have been camping up to two days outside of Apple’s flagship store in Sydney to get their hands on an iPhone 7, according to Daily Mail.
The iPhone 7’s popularity in Hong Kong has taken a naughty turn when its new marketing slogan was translated in Cantonese, a language mostly spoken in Hong Kong.
The slogan, “This is 7” — roughly translates in Cantonese to “This is penis” as the character for “seven” is pronounced tsat (or “chat”), an alternative slang word for the male sex organ. Jokes about the phone being a penis for its lack of significant features have emerged in social media.
Despite many tech experts doubting the new iPhones’ marketability, there’s no doubt that there are still many hardcore iPhone fans out there.
