Huawei tries to bend the truth to overhype P9’s dual cameras, fails spectacularly

While Huawei and Leica’s partnership on the P9 and P9 Plus has already come under fire for perhaps claiming to be more than it actually is, there’s no contesting the high quality of the dual rear camera arrangement featured by the two phones.

What the mobile shooters aren’t capable of however is snapping pics quite as sharp and detailed as a professional DSLR system costing several thousands of dollars. That’s perfectly fine by most Android enthusiasts who understand a handheld has to make calls too, play videos and games, all while staying breezy, slender and portable.

But still, Huawei thought it right to suggest the P9 can “reinvent smartphone photography” in such a way that it closes the gap to full-frame CMOS digital single-lens reflex cams like the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Check that, not like the Mark II, but exactly the Mark II.

That’s apparently the machine used for producing the above breathtaking image, and although Huawei never explicitly claimed otherwise, it sure dropped obvious hints, saying the P9’s dual Leica cameras “makes taking photos in low light conditions like this a pleasure.” Ultimately, the G+ pic was deleted, and Huawei apologized for the confusion. Yeah, right, confusion.
