The latest event involves an advertisement in Egypt for the company's Nova 3 handset. It has two key characters, one of which is actress Sarah Elshamy. In her ad, her supposed girlfriend attempts to take care of Nova 3 as she hurries to make her makeup. He snaps the picture before she has a chance, and then the ad shows a still image of the couple all dolled up and looks amazing.
In one of the pictures (as the page has been deleted) we see the couple posing for the picture in front of what appears to be an expensive DSLR camera. The supposed girlfriend extends his arm as if he is holding Nova 3 for a selfie, just there is no phone in his hand. His bare hand stretches out of the frame, but is clearly visible in the rear view.

"The photo, which was professionally taken during the filming of a Huawei P9 ad, was shared to inspire society. We realize that we should have been clearer with captions for this image. It was never our intention to mislead, "Huawei said on time.
We must wait and see if Huawei issues a similar sentence for the Nova 3 ad.
