Huawei posts DSLR-clicked image for touting Nova 3 camera

Huawei does it again, passes off a professional photo as a selfie from its new phone

HUAWEI nova 3's camera has a set focal length of 35mm for selfies providing the best-in-technology to capture a stunning AI selfie.

Huawei said in a statement that its disclaimer at the end of the ad-which refers to "product characteristics and actual specifications" as well as "presentation contents"-absolves them of the subterfuge". In the case of Huawei, the company decidedly used a DSLR camera to take what was supposed to be selfie camera shots during a commercial shoot for its Nova 3 smartphone.

Sniper rifles added in the latest Fortnite update
It is located in Salty Springs and if you head there and collect the Battle Star you have then completed the challenge. PUBG Mobile is available now for Android or iPhone and is hands-down the best battle royale title for mobile gamers.

This is not the first time that Huawei has been found to have engaged in deceptive marketing practices, which is a shame because it takes away from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer's accomplishments. Although Elshamy was quick to pull down the photo from her Instagram account, it was already too late as the readers got their hands on the image and started sharing it.

Don't always believe what you see. AI and smart cameras aside, the level of detail that a DSLR promises is far more than what a smartphone can deliver. Samsung Brazil was recently caught trying to pass off stock photos as pictures taken with the Galaxy A8. The new, trendy and fashionable HUAWEI nova 3i is powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) in its overall functioning and camera features. Or in post-processing. Rare, however, is when the magic trick is revealed, like when Sarah Elshamy, the actress from the ad, accidentally posted a "behind the scenes" picture on Instagram. which has now been immortalized on Reddit. Once it had cropped bezels from the P8 smartphone renders which was done on Photoshop, as revealed by IANS. "Numerous photos we post are taken using our smartphones, but some, like this one, comes from a database of images that resonate with our target audience", Samsung Brazil responded to the user who had revealed the fake Samsung images. The Nova 3's AI feature doesn't care if you're not wearing makeup, and as such as can just adjust your face to make it look like you are! Instead, a DSLR camera was positioned where the smartphone should be, and presumably, taking the photo that was used in the advertisement. The company is in the news again for promoting its Nova 3 smartphone dishonestly. Both the Nova 3 and the Nova 3i are Amazon India exclusives in the country.
