Huawei found itself in the center of another scandal when they passed DSLR photos as they were shot with the company’s smartphone. If you think this sounds familiar, you’re right. Huawei did it before, not once, not twice – but three times. And I guess the third time wasn’t a charm so they did it again for the fourth time.
Huawei has recently announced its P30 and P30 Pro phones, aimed to “rewrite the rules of photography.” The four-camera setup of the Pro version offers some impressive features, such as 5x optical zoom, optical image stabilization and excellent low-light capabilities. And while the lenses are co-designed with Leica, a recent teardown has shown that the sensors were made by Sony.
Smartphone makers are racing who will make a phone with a better camera, and more camera modules. The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have just joined the race, offering “phoneographers” a lot to play with. The Pro model features a four-camera setup, with the 40MP main sensor. It allows 5x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. Along with a few more specs, it really seems promising for all those who often shoot with their smartphone.
Huawei was busted two times before for passing off DSLR photos as their smartphone camera images. Well, it has happened again. To show off camera capabilities of the latest P30 phone, Huawei used stock photos, as well as a photo from someone’s portfolio. Needless to say – all of them were taken with a DSLR.
