Huawei once again became the focus of attention when claiming the photos “taken with Huawei phones” but in fact they were taken with “genuine cameras” DSLRs.
According to Android Authority, Huawei recently promoted a photography contest on China’s Chinese microblogging platform Weibo, which posted a video with some stunning photos. The company claims these images were taken with Huawei phones. However, one of those images was actually taken with a $ 3,000 Nikon D850 DSLR.
The misleading photo was discovered by Weibo user Jamie-hua. When he watched the video, he recognized images he had seen before. After a bit of research, he found one of the photos on the 500px photography platform. The origin of the image clearly shows that it was taken with a Nikon camera and its EXIF data proves the same thing. That is the picture below:

For its part, Huawei apologized for the mistake. The company said an editor had mislabeled the photos in the promotional video as photos taken with Huawei phones. The company also thanks Weibo users for pointing out the difference.
Huawei changed the video and said it will be more careful in the future to prevent the same thing from happening.
Sadly, this is not the first time Huawei has been caught in a situation like this. This has happened at least three times in the past. The last time the company published a series of photos on Weibo implied that they were taken with a P30 phone. This issue was later resolved when the company acknowledged that its brochures were misleading.
