In the past few years, Huawei’s phones have been quite popular for their powerful smartphone’s camera. They are said to be packed with the best camera sensors that capture DSLR like photos. However, the company has been caught again of promoting images captured using an expensive DSLR camera to be shot using a Huawei smartphone, this time with the Huawei P40 Pro.
As of now, Huawei is running a contest for its fans in China to promote the Huawei P40 Pro. From this contest, Huawei has shared a video on the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, which includes a bunch of stellar photos that Huawei claimed had been shot on its smartphones.
However, one of the Weibo users noticed that he has seen one of the images earlier shown in the video. After doing some research, he found the exact photo on 500px with complete data on what actually took the shot. In short, the image which Huawei claimed to be shot on Huawei P40 Pro was actually taken from a Nikon D850 DLSR camera which costs over $3,000 on its own.
In addition to this, South China Morning Post points out that two shots were taken from the same photographer to be used in this video as seen in the gallery below. This clearly puts Huawei in the center of questions of why claiming those photos to be shot using Huawei P40 Pro.
The company responded to the situation claiming the photos were “wrongly marked” due to “an oversight by the editor.” In the same statement, the company said that these images were intended to encourage people to share their works on Huawei’s online gallery. And just after the statement, the video was altered to remove the line that says the photos came from Huawei phones.
Still, this statement looks to be untruthful. Over the past few years, Huawei has been doing the same mistakes and every time they excuse the matter claiming that it was a mistake of others. Well, Huawei is not the only company that has been caught doing this. However, we already know, Huawei P40 Pro has a powerful camera and takes stunning shots. So, there’s no need for the company to fool customers with some DSLR-shot images.
