Never ones to miss a marketing opportunity, both Huawei and Xiaomi are having fun on social media to promote its own products at the expense of the other. It all started when Huawei responded to Apple’s event yesterday in preparation for its Huawei P30 Pro launch today and is now getting a taste of its own medicine as Xiaomi respond.
Following Apple’s event yesterday where the company announced a bunch of new services, including the new Apple Credit Card and News+ subscription, Huawei used the opportunity to bring focus on its upcoming event. The company sent the below tweet thanking Apple for its pre-show, but the Huawei P30 Pro launch would be the main event.

As the saying goes, if you can’t take it, don’t dish it, as Xiaomi is now poking fun at the Huawei P30 Pro.

While it’s like comparing apples and oranges since the P30 Pro is powered by the Kirin 7nm 980, while Xiaomi uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 for its flagships, you can’t knock the effort.
The Huawei P30 Pro was launched today with a heavy focus on the camera setup and 5x optical zoom capabilities. Be sure to read our comparison on how it stacks up against the competition.
