Wang Leehom attends Apple launch event

Technology giant Apple held their annual launch event earlier this week (September 13, local time), where they unveiled the designs and specifications for the new iPhones, amongst other things.

Taiwanese singer-actor Wang Leehom was one of those who had scored an invite to the exclusive event itself, which was live-streamed worldwide. The 42-year-old is currently on paternity leave in America to take care of his wife, Lee Jinglei, who gave birth to the couple's third child, a boy, on August 24.

According to reports, Leehom, who is close friends with Facebook’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg, is also closely acquainted with Apple’s Chief Executive Officer, Tim Cook.

After the launch event, Leehom took to Weibo to wax lyrical about the new iPhones, uploading a video of him trying out the new gadgets. Said to be the “biggest iPhones” in history, the singer could not help but to marvel at the beauty of the phones, repeating “how beautiful” three times in the video.

However, the presence of Leehom at the event left fans scratching their heads at the absence of another well-known Apple fanboy - Taiwanese singer-actor Jimmy Lin.

When contacted for a comment after the launch event, Jimmy cut to the chase and shared that he has no intentions to purchase the newest iPhones, as the phones are too big to store in one’s pocket. He also shared that in his opinion, the iPhone 3GS, which was released in 2009, is the best iPhone to him.

Local singer JJ Lin, who had attended last year’s Apple launch event, shared through his manager that while he had received an invitation to this year’s event, he was sadly unable to fit the event into his packed schedule. As a result, the singer had to give the event a miss.
