According to the guidelines of Guinness World Record, the selfie should be taken by an individual with the use of smartphone or a digital camera. The world-breaking selfie image was captured in exactly 180 seconds, which means nearly one click in one second. Only Huawei Mate 9 can reach this speed.

In order for Huawei to achieve ultimate selfie for the world record, they have used Mate 9. The device has 8MP front camera, which is equipped with user-friendly auto-focus and smile capture. In addition, Huawei’s Aesthetics Center in France has developed innovative and natural skin beautification algorithms for the camera. 

Moreover, its second-generation dual camera optics technology was also developed by Leica Camera AG. Its 12MP rear camera has monochrome sensor that works well with the enhanced image fusion algorithms, offering unmatched smartphone photography.

UAE Country Manager for Huawei Consumer Business Group David Wang said that their new record in Guinness using the Mate 9 proved that this smartphone is actually 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,” Wang said.

Guinness World Record Dubai officials monitored Huawei’s new record. Guinness World Record Dubai office was opened in February 2013.

The Chinese smartphone maker has a plan of breaking several other records in 2017. However, they did not elaborate the things they would like to experiment with.
