Xiaomi has established itself as a brand that unabashedly takes a dig at its rivals. It often takes to its social media accounts to mock its competitors. After bashing Samsung, Apple, OPPO, the brand has now taken a fresh dig at Huawei targeting the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones. Xiaomi posted two consecutive posts trolling the P30 series. Shared on its official handles on Twitter and Facebook, Xiaomi took pot-shots by comparing the Mi 9 with the Huawei P30 and also by questioning the pricing of the latest Huawei phone.
Xiaomi Openly Trolls Huawei Over P30 and P30 Pro, Compares With Mi 9
Huawei recently took the wraps off its new phones – P30 and P30 Pro – at an event in Paris. Xiaomi did not wait for long before launching a troll war on Huawei. Xiaomi’s UK account on Twitter first posted a witty image (meme) on its page. The image shows Huawei P30 Pro going for “Swarovski Crystal Case” over “newest chipset” – the post openly mocks Huawei’s decision to stick to Kirin 980 chipset for both P30 and P30 Pro smartphones. The OEM used the same chipset for its last year’s Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20 X. In contrast, Xiaomi integrated Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 SoC for its Mi 9 smartphone and also the recently launched Black Shark 2.

Coming to the post shared on its Facebook post, Xiaomi shared an image comparing the Mi 9 with the P30. The image had a caption that read, “At Xiaomi, we really believe in giving you amazing products at #HonestPrices. Do you think a flagship smartphone should cost you a fortune? #Mi9. Posts shared on different social media channels by Xiaomi depicts how it has made its first move to mock Huawei. We wonder what Huawei would do in response. Like we said in the beginning, Xiaomi is a seasoned player in the game of trolling. The company has always been at the forefront in calling out its rivals.
Comparing the Huawei P30 With Xiaomi Mi 9
We are yet to review either of the devices, but we can draw a comparison based on their specs sheet. Starting with the display, the Huawei P30 has a 6.39-inch Samsung’s AMOLED FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) display while the Huawei P30 has a 6.1-inch FHD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) Wide Color Gamut OLED display. The Mi 9 is powered by Snapdragon 845 chipset while the P30 has Huawei’s in-house Kirin 980 SoC, both the processors are based on the 7nm manufacturing process. The Huawei P30 sports a 40MP+16MP+8MP triple rear camera setup while the Mi 9 has a 48MP+12MP+16MP triple rear camera setup. On the front, the P30 has a 32MP selfie snapper while the Mi 9 features a 20MP Beautify selfie camera. A 3,300mAh with QuickCharge v4.0 and wireless charge support backs the Mi 9 whereas the P30 has a 3,650mAh battery with 40W SuperCharge support.
As one can ascertain from the above-made comparison, the Mi 9 seems to have the upper hand. However, we cannot reach a verdict just by comparing the spec-sheet. We will wait for getting our hands on both the phones before concluding which phone takes the cake. Until then, we can grab some popcorn and wait how the troll war pans out between the two major OEMs.
