Huawei wastes no time mocking the Galaxy S10 to hype the P30 series
While Xiaomi inexplicably chose to schedule the official announcement of the Mi 9 on the same day that Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy S10 family and the groundbreaking Galaxy Fold, Huawei settled for some good old fashioned Twitter trolling in an attempt to rain on its arch-rival’s parade.

Mere minutes after the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e were formally unveiled, Huawei began mocking the world’s largest smartphone vendor by welcoming it to the “triple camera club.”
Although photography prowess is not always about the number of shooters mounted on the back of a phone (just ask Pixel 3 owners), it’s hard to deny Huawei’s trend-setting role when it comes to multi-camera arrangements.


The P20 Pro was the world’s first phone equipped with three rear-facing cameras, the Mate 20 Pro is also an impressive imaging powerhouse, and now the Galaxy S10 and S10+ sport triple lens layouts of their own.

Interestingly, Huawei made no mention of the upcoming quad-camera P30 Pro, so perhaps that detail wasn’t supposed to be revealed by the company’s CEO after all. Either way, the P30 series teasing games are clearly on, with two new images and a short video reminding us a March 26 event is happening to showcase a “Professional”, “Precise”, “Pioneering”, “Premium”, “Powerful”, and “Playful” device capable of delivering “Powerful zoom” and producing “Perfect night shots.”


Meanwhile, Samsung’s “Standard” Galaxy S10 lineup is none of those things, at least according to Huawei, so you may want to wait for the actual “next big thing” before buying a new phone this spring.

Those are some generic potshots on Huawei’s part, which also took the time to highlight the marginal battery size advantage of the Mate 20 Pro over the Galaxy S10+. Seriously, guys, 100 mAh of extra juice is nothing.
