According to new leaks, Huawei is working on reintroducing pill-shaped selfie camera cutouts on the Mate 60 series. The feature was last seen on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and P40 Pro in 2020. But at the time it was in the top-left corners of the displays. The new Mates could now come onto the market in autumn with a separate module for the dual selfie cameras and the 3D ToF sensor again. This time, however, for the first time with a center-positioned dual selfie camera design, which Apple introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
Two cameras and a ToF sensor are basically not a new feature for Huawei cell phones. Huawei first showed such a setup on the Mate 30 in 2019. The P series also had it for a short time. The difference in the new model lies in the design. In previous Mate smartphones, the module was either on the left side or in a full-fledged notch.
When the new Apple iPhones launched last year, they also brought with them a new software feature called Dynamic Island. With that, Apple wanted to make the most of the pill-shaped cutout that was required for Face ID. Huawei could now follow a similar path with the Mate 60. And make the most of it with notifications and apps specifically for the small segment.
