Huawei surprised everyone today and launched the Mate 60 Pro without a big teaser campaign or event. You can already pre-order the new smartphone at Vmall, the company’s online store in China. The most interesting feature are three small holes in the display, where Huawei places the selfie camera and the 3D ToF sensor.
The Huawei Mate 60 Pro is based on a 6.82-inch LTPO 10-bit OLED display with 2720 x 1260 pixels. It supports an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz and is also protected by second generation Kunlun glass. The front cameras follow the same setup as the Mate 40 Pro and Mate 50 Pro. That means a 13-megapixel ultrawide selfie camera is accompanied by a 3D ToF sensor and laser autofocus to provide 3D scanning for Face ID functionality.
The main camera module on the back of the Huawei smartphone accommodates three additional cameras. This includes the same 50 megapixel wide camera with a variable aperture from f/1.4 to f/4.0 and OIS that Huawei also uses in the Mate 50 Pro and P60 Pro. The ultra wide camera has a 12 megapixel sensor and an f/2.2 lens. Finally, you get a 48 megapixel telephoto camera with an f/3.0 aperture and also optical image stabilization.
The 5,000 mAh battery supports 88W wired charging, 50W wireless charging and 20W reverse wireless charging. The operating system is HarmonyOS 4.0, which makes the Huawei Mate 60 Pro the first smartphone with this user interface. Unfortunately, there is still no information on the chipset.

The Huawei Mate 60 Pro comes with a two-tone back and four color options. In the white and green variants, the upper part is made of glass and in the purple and black variants, faux leather is used. All four versions got their names from places in China whose nature reflects each colour.
