Huawei released a bunch of promotional images for the P30 Pro last week. These images all showed incredible zoom and the public may have been fooled into believing them to be a display of the P30 Pro's purported 10x hybrid zoom. Well, those images were taken by a DSLR.

A few days ago, more promotional content for the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro surfaced, showing shots with incredible zoom meant to advertise the device’s reported 10x hybrid zoom. Some may have assumed that those images were taken by a P30 Pro but that isn’t the case, as it’s been confirmed that the images were taken with DSLRs.

While we’re not sure why anyone would think those images were taken by a smartphone—most are just too good to be, and considerably above the current limits of smartphone photography—confirmation is still nice to get.

That said, the still image of the moon from a few weeks ago is all but certain to have been taken with a P30 Pro, as it’s the only one to have the phone’s watermark on it. The actual quality of the shot is entirely subjective, though.

The Huawei P30 phones will debut on March 26, at an event in Paris.
