Huawei smartphone's AI cameras can tell your cat and car apart

Chinese maker's affordable new handset detects photo subjects and picks best mode

Huawei's Nova 3 can be had for the equivalent of $480, considerably less than Apple's entry-level iPhone XR.

TOKYO -- China's Huawei Technologies is aiming for a younger set of Japanese customers with its newest smartphone, which comes with artificially intelligent cameras and a relatively modest price tag.

The main back-facing camera on the just-released model, the Nova 3, draws on AI technology to recognize 22 kinds of subjects -- food, cars, cats, even pandas -- and automatically choose the appropriate shooting mode.
