Huawei recently published P30 teaser Photographs hinting at its super zoom capabilities.
But now it has come to light that the photographs were actually taken from a DSLR, rather than the Huawei P30. Among the photographs was taken from a photographer’s portfolio and one was even sourced from Getty Images. This unethical practice by Huawei for a marketing campaign for the P30 show is in bad taste, and undermines the telephone’s real photo-taking skills. Sadly, this is not the first time that Huawei was captured using a DSLR to misrepresent smartphone sample photographs, with the firm causing controversy when it submitted fake Nova 3 selfies.
These fake photos passed off as taken from the Huawei P30 series indicates the company in bad lighting, and it was spotted by GSMArena. The volcano image was taken from Getty Images, along with the kid playing with ducks photo was shot from a photographer called Jake Olson’s portfolio. It’s fairly possible that the firm bought copyrights of the photographs used in the teaser campaign, and did not outright steal them, but it still is not an specific representation of what the photos will probably look like if taken in the Huawei P30.
Huawei was caught up in a similar controversy a year ago when it used a DSLR misrepresent them as Nova 3 sample photographs. Back then, Sarah Elshamy, among the actors in the ad, posted photos on her Instagram page, and one image revealed a photographer shooting on the”at-home selfie with a DSLR”.
Huawei was teasing macro shots capabilities since some time now, and the most recent teaser did just that. One would assume that an OEM would utilize the photographs taken from the telephone for the campaign, ahead of the launch, but that is not the case with Huawei.
Huawei had recently even shared a photo of the moon, claiming that it was taken from the Huawei P30, and the particulars of the moon suggested an upgrade in zooming capabilities. Huawei’s VP of International Product Marketing, Clement Wong says that the photograph was shot on-device, handheld, without any extra help.
The Huawei P30 will sport a triple back camera setup in the trunk, whereas the P30 Pro will game a quad camera set at the back. The sensors will be aligned vertically accompanied by a dual-LED flash module.
Past rumours suggest the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro smartphones will sport OLED screens using a waterdrop-style top notch and optical in-display fingerprint sensors. The Huawei P30 is said to possess a max of 40-megapixel and support for 5x lossless zoom. In the front, it is expected to have a 24-megapixel selfie camera. The Huawei P30 is thought to be coming with a 6.1-inch OLED panel with 8GB of RAM, whereas the Huawei P30 Pro will include a larger 6.5-inch screen with 12GB of RAM.
