Looking for truth and facts in advertisements has mostly been a murky job, and Huawei's latest stunt goes a long way to prove how little advertisements can be trusted. The male actor is supposed to be holding a Nova 3 in that shot, snapping a selfie with Elshamy in the photo as well.
The advertisement features several "selfie" shots that appear to be taken on the Nova 3 device. The video revealed that the footage was actually shot from a high-end camera, rather than the Lumia 920's video camera.
