Peeping Tom’s, amateur spies, and the generally creepy have a new smartphone to crave. The Huawei P30 Pro boasts a 50x zoom camera that is going viral on social media and making tech publications scream in every direction imaginable.
In reality, cameras with this capability have been around for a long time, but not on a smartphone. There’s something sinister about a smartphone with these capabilities that have people saying, “This is awful and dangerous… I want one!”
This may seem like no big deal to some, but the way technology has become a useful tool to those with nefarious intentions is growing as a problem in western society every day. This isn’t just a better camera on a smartphone. This is a benchmark issue, one that will drive other companies to improve their own camera capabilities until they become truly dangerous.
If Huawei can make such a wave, imagine when Apple and Samsung match or exceed them.
The paranoid and the private must be more careful as this technology improves. It’s easy to imagine someone far enough away to not be easily seen with the naked eye spying on someone at the computer or in their dressing room revealing things they don’t want others to see. On top of that, it’s a smartphone with the capability of transmitting images and videos in real time.
I understand the desire to have these capabilities, but I’m also terrified by the implications of such technology in the hands of bad people.
“It can zoom in like a DSLR, and it can quickly snap low-light photos that would normally require a tripod and a lot of patience. It has every feature you can imagine, and then some. In short: The phone can take photos that other smartphones can only dream of.” – Stan Schroeder
Technology is empowering people to do things they only dreamed of being able to do in the past. With privacy concerns already a big issue in western society, the Huawei P30 Pro will add more fuel to that raging fire.
