In addition to announcing the Huawei Mate X3 foldable flagship, and the Huawei Watch Ultimate premium smartwatch, Huawei also launched its P60 series today. All of these devices got announced during a press event in China.
The Huawei P60, P60 Pro & P60 Art got announced as the company’s new flagships
Huawei announced three devices as part of the series, the Huawei P60, P60 Pro, and P60 Art. These three devices are very similar in many ways, but there are some differences between them. The ‘Art’ is the most premium one, actually.
The Huawei P60 and P60 Pro do look basically the same, but the ‘Art’ stands out with its odd–looking camera island, and different finish on the backplate. Let’s first see what are the similarities here.
They all have the same exact LTPO AMOLED display
All three phones do have the same 6.67-inch fullHD+ (2700 x 1220) LTPO AMOLED display. Its refresh rate goes from 1Hz to 120Hz on all three phones, while they offer a 300Hz touch sampling rate.
All three phones also have a centered display camera hole up top, and very thin bezels. All phones have three cameras on the back, but there are some differences between them we’ll talk about. The ‘Art’ also has a special backplate that reflects light in interesting ways, Huawei wanted to mimic the water here, in a way.
They also shared the dimensions, all three phones measure 161 x 74.5 x 8.3mm, but their weight is a bit different. The Huawei P60, P60 Pro, and P60 Art weigh 197, 200, and 206 grams, respectively.
The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC is also something they have in common, with 4G support. 5G is not on offer here due to the US ban, pretty much. The Huawei P60 and P60 Pro offer up to 512GB of storage, while the ‘Art’ goes up to 1TB. RAM info is still unknown.
The Huawei P60 series supports wired charging up to 88W, and up to 50W wirelessly
The Huawei P60 features a 4,815mAh battery, the same as the P60 Pro, while the P60 Art has a 5,100mAh unit. The Huawei P60 supports 66W wired charging, while the other two phones offer 88W wired charging. 50W wireless charging is supported on all three phones. And yes, a charger ships inside the box with all three phones.
IP68 certification comes with all three phones, as does Bluetooth 5.2. You will also find an in-display fingerprint scanner in all three phones, along with two nano SIM card slots. An IR blaster also sits at the top of all three devices.
Huawei’s XMAGE camera setup is included on all three phones, but there are differences
All three phones have the same main camera. A 48-megapixel unit with adjustable aperture (f/1.4-f/4.0 aperture, OIS). The Mate 50 Pro took the same approach, and the results were outstanding. The Huawei P60 and P60 Pro have a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera (f/2.2 aperture), while the ‘Art’ has a 40-megapixel ultrawide unit (f/2.2 aperture).
The Huawei P60 includes a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto camera (f/3.4 aperture, OIS, 5x optical zoom, 24.5mm, 13mm, and 125mm focal lengths, 50x digital zoom) for its third camera. The Huawei P60 Pro and P60 Art, however, have a 48-megapixel super-spotting night vision telephoto camera (f/2.1 aperture, OIS, 3.5x optical zoom, 24.5m, 13mm, and 90mm focal lengths, 100x digital zoom).
The Huawei P60 series will be coming to global markets
The Huawei P60 starts at CNY4,988 in China. The P60 Pro starts at CNY6,988, while the Hauwei P60 Art starts at CNY8,988. The Huawei P60 series will be coming to global markets, but we still don’t know which models exactly.
