Huawei Caught Using DSLR Shots in P30 Marketing

Some eagle eyed readers over at GSMArena recently discovered that Huawei used professional DLSR shots to market the periscope zoom camera on the Huawei P30. Much like Samsung's fake Galaxy advertisements from last year, the posters weren't marked as DSLR shots at first, and they were clearly implied to be shots from the P30, but the Weibo photos were seemingly updated with disclaimers after various media outlets started catching on. In an official statement, Huawei claims the photos "are only intended to hint at the unique new features."

We've been made aware that there might have been some misunderstanding regarding our recent HUAWEI P30 Series teaser posters. We would like to reiterate that those are, in fact, only teaser posters, and are only intended to hint at the unique new features that will come with the HUAWEI P30 Series. Huawei has acquired the licenses to the original images and the posters are artistic renditions of said features only. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the media for their interest in our posters. We have much to announce in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned!
