Huawei caught using stock images to promote smartphone's camera


New marketing for Huawei's upcoming P30 smartphone has been caught trying to pass stock images as photos taken by the product's camera. Last Friday, Huawei's CEO for its consumer business group, Richard Yu, posted a collection of sample images for the upcoming phone through his account on Sina Weibo, a popular social networking service in China. All nine ads hyped up the P30's camera by featuring individual images presumably taken by the phone and it's powerful "periscope zoom" camera. However, a few users noticed the sample images appeared to be too good to be true. It turns out they were right.
