Huawei Is Faking Pictures Once more, This Time For The P30 Professional

Huawei Is Faking Pictures Once more, This Time For The P30 Professional

The Huawei Nova 4 was among the first smartphones to be announced featuring a punch hole. And the Chinese company has done it again.

Huawei was busted two times before for passing off DSLR photos as their smartphone camera images.

Days after Huawei shared a teaser for the Super Zoom feature of Huawei P30 Pro, we now have some leaked camera samples of the device from multiple locations and sources.

The Band 3 Pro is resistant to water and dust to up to 50 metres and can track your swim strokes, notify you about the calls/texts and reject or mute them as well.

In case you're eyeing on the new P30 Series already, you should know that Huawei is planning to include the 1TB external hard drive as a free bundle so that you can automatically, or manually back up your precious memories and documents!

To make matters worse, as spotted by an eagled-eyed GSMArena reader, some of the images weren't even Huawei's own - they came from a professional photographer's portfolio. Maybe the company is deliberately trying to mislead users with its questionable marketing.

Update, March 13, 2019 (12:15AM): Huawei has issued a statement after it emerged that it was using stock photos in its P30 promotional material.

This screw-up comes from right from the top, too, as it's Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer biz, that's the culprit. Apparently, these images were simply used to display the features included rather than the actual capabilities of Huawei's technology directly.

The images now feature a disclaimer - "Image exclusively for advertising" - but it was only added after the photos caught the attention of the Internet. It also mentions that no post-production editing has been done with the pictures.

The rear camera will also come with laser autofocus, dual LED flash, and a 3D Time-of-Flight sensor.

Huawei responded to the whole episode by saying that there could have been a "misunderstanding". In addition, the spokesperson added that Huawei has acquired the licenses to the original images and the posters are artistic renditions of said features.

An isolated incident or a habit?

It could have avoided the whole embarrassing incident.
