Beating the record by a milestone, Huawei used the Mate 9 to capture the most selfies taken in three minutes 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 10 January 2017:  Today, at The Palace Downtown Dubai, Huawei broke the Guinness World Record for the most selfies taken with different people in three minutes. The image featuring 160 participants was captured using the Huawei Mate 9 with the iconic Burj Khalifa as a backdrop. 
The record breaking attempt took place at The Palace Hotel in Downtown Dubai, United Arab Emirates. As per the Guinness World Record guidelines, the image was a selfie taken by an individual using a smartphone or digital camera and was captured in exactly 180 seconds. To achieve this feat, Huawei naturally selected their all-new flagship device the Huawei Mate 9 and put the device to the ultimate speed test. 

To capture the ultimate selfie for the world record attempt, the team utilized the 8-megapixel front camera on the Mate 9 which is also equipped with user-friendly auto-focus and smile capture. Additionally, the camera used the new, natural looking skin beautification algorithms developed by Huawei’s Aesthetics Center in France.

With its’ impressive second-generation dual-lens technology co-engineered with Leica Camera AG, the device was the ideal choice to shoot the recork breaking image. The 12-megapixel RGB sensor and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor work in tandem along with the enhanced image fusion algorithms to offer unparalleled smartphone photography. 

Commenting on the achievement, David Wang Country Manager of the UAE for Huawei Consumer Business Group said, “Breaking the Guinness World Record with the Mate 9 cements our belief that this smartphone is truly unbeatable. We’ve set international standards before and the fact that this achievement was set here in the UAE makes it even more special for our region. We’re proud to hold the Guinness World Record title and view this as a testament to the standard-setting work we do on a daily basis.” 

The previous record held by Donnie Wahlberg and his fans on board the New Kids on the Block Cruise in the Gulf of Mexico featured 122 people in October 2016. Huawei’s victory by 38 additional people makes the record even more difficult for attempters to try.

The Guinness World Record using the Mate 9 marks a major achievement as 2017 begins. Look out for more of Huawei’s record-breaking attempts for 2017. For more information on this follow the hashtag #Mate9WorldRecord.
