Huawei’s recent launch of the new P9 put a lot of attention on the brand, with claims that the smartphone camera can match DSLR quality shots.
This image recently posted by Huawei on its Facebook page, promoting the P9. Even though Huawei never directly claimed it was clicked with the P9. The caption read :

The reason being was from a video they approved that promoted the OIS (optical image stabilization) features in the 920. If you remember, the video showed a girl riding a bike and the pleasant moments were all captured on camera by a friend, who was led to believe to be using the 920. However, the reflection in a window proved otherwise and revealed that the video was actually shot with a DSLR, not “the latest innovation from PureView technology.”

Cloning a SIM card requires physical access to it or the interception of the communication between the caller and his or her cellphone [...]
