After several weeks of various teasers and leaks, the HONOR 60 series has launched in China. Do note that HONOR will launch at least one of these two phones in global markets as well, if not both.
That being said, this series consists out of two phones, the HONOR 60 and 60 Pro. These two devices do resemble their predecessors quite a bit as far as the design is concerned. Even if you take a look at the specs, you’ll see a lot of similarities.
Having said that, both phones are made out of metal and glass. The HONOR 60 Pro is a bit larger, thanks to a larger display, while both feature curved displays.
The HONOR 60 features a 6.67-inch fullHD+ (2340 x 1080) curved OLED display. This display supports HDR10 content, and has hardware-level dimming.
The Snapdragon 778G SoC fuels the phone, while HONOR included 8GB / 12GG of RAM here. The 8GB RAM model comes in 128GB and 256GB storage options, while the 12GB RAM variant includes 256GB of storage.
Android 11 comes pre-installed, with Magic UI 5.0. A 4,800mAh battery is also a part of the package, and it supports 66W fast wired charging. The device does support 5G connectivity, and it has an optical in-display fingerprint scanner.
A 108-megapixel main camera (f/1.9 aperture) is included on the back, along with an 8-megapixel ultrawide unit (112-degree FoV, f/2.2 aperture). A 2-megapixel depth camera (f/2.4 aperture) also sits on the back. A single 32-megapixel camera (f/2.4) is used for a front-facing shooter.
There are two nano SIM card slots available here. The HONOR 60 includes Bluetooth 5.2, and it measures 161.4 x 73.3 x 7.98mm, and weighs 179 grams.

The HONOR 60 Pro, on the other hand, includes a 6.78-inch fullHD+ (2652 x 1200) 120Hz OLED display, which is also curved. It also includes hardware-level dimming, and has support for HDR10 content.
