Huawei was again found to engage in misleading marketing practices when a Nova 3 advertisement for selfies apparently used DSLR camera photographs. Smartphone manufacturer was captured through back-scenes images uploaded by female actor. Sarah Elshamy | Imgur )
Huawei was caught attempting to transfer DSLR camera images as selfies taken by Nova 3 camera, in the last case of fake ads from mobile phones.
This is not the first time that Huawei has been found to be engaged in misleading marketing practices, which is a pity because it removes the Chinese smartphone producer's achievements.
Huawei Nova 3 Ad caught lurking
An ad for Huawei Nova 3 shows the smartphone's camera through a couple who take selfies in different situations. In one scene, the male actor takes herself with the female actress while she gets ready to go out, and the Nova 3 camera's artificial intelligence technology made the woman like to make her make.
Sarah Elshamy, the female actor, uploaded several back-scenes images of the ad on her Instagram account. One of the photos, as the Android police discovered, showed that selfies taken by Nova 3 instead were taken by a DSLR camera.
The controversial image, which has since been deleted from Elshamy's account, showed that he plays the extended arm to look as if he took a selfie. However, Nova 3 was not in hand. Instead, a DSLR camera was placed where the smartphone should be, and presumably, take the image used in the ad.
The ad does not explicitly state that the highlighted images were taken by Nova 3, but the appearance of crosshairs and "AI" text on the pictures made major implications. Customers may be pressured to purchase Nova 3 based on advertising, so using DSLR images instead of actual images taken by the smartphone is considered misleading.
DSLR Smartphone Cameras
This is not the first time Huawei was caught for using a DSLR camera in its smartphone marketing, as a Huawei P9 image uploaded two years ago on its Google+ page was discovered to Have been brought with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Huawei should also try to avoid such fake advertising agencies, as it removes company performance, which includes the Huawei P20 Pro being voted the best smartphone for the Huawei P8. 201
