Huawei Faked It?!

Allegedly Huawei faked an advert for their latest smartphone the Nova 3. Instead it is said that a full sized DSLR was used to take photos. A shot in the company’s latest commercial for the Nova 3 shows a couple arguing and then stopping momentarily to take a ‘selfie’.

The aim was to show how Huawei’s AI and camera technology can make it so that the woman doesn’t need to put her make up on. Yet it can be said that it Huawei faked it as shown by a behind the scene’s photo which was discovered on instagram by reddit user AbdullahSab3.

Caught Out?

The photo, which has since been deleted was posted on instagram by Sarah Elshamy (whom is the actress in the scene) highlights that no phone is present in the scene. Yet allegedly Huawei faked it. The gentleman is putting his hand up to the lens of the DLSR as if he is holding a phone.

While it can be stated that the ad never explicitly stated that the picture was shot on the Nova 3. However, it is implied and you can be forgiven if you didn’t think otherwise.

Yet, Android Police have pointed out that Huawei have history doing this. They were once caught photoshopping out bezels on renderings of the P8. Furthermore Huawei posted a shot on its Google+ page taken from a P9. While the EXIF data revealed that the shot was taken on a Canon EOS 5D MarkIII.(Verge)

Allegedly faking photos is one thing, but people actually use Google+? Who ever used Google+?
