A number of interesting example photos recently appeared on WeChat Moments, together with a cryptic caption that is something in the way of “New phone makes great photos”. The pictures come from He Gang, COO at Huawei Smart Devices. He took the photos apparently during the Mobile World Congress 2023. Sources speculate that they come from the still unannounced new flagship Huawei P60 Pro. More precisely, from the new telecamera of the P60 Pro.
Industry insider Digital Chat Station has recently commented on this new telecamera of the Huawei P60 Pro. According to DCS, it is a 64 megapixel sensor from Omnivision (OV64B) with 3.5 times optical zoom. In addition, the telecamera uses a RYYB pixel arrangement, so exchanging two green pixels for yellow pixels. This should increase the light collecting skills by up to 40% and, accordingly, shoot better night photos.
DCS also states that the new telekamera has several newly developed camera algorithms that support dynamic aperture adjustments. This function should primarily be used for portrait photos.
In addition to the new 64 megapixel telephoto lens, previous rumors about the Huawei P60 Pro also assume a Sony IMX888 main camera with 50 megapixels. In addition, a Sony IMX858-ultra-wide camera with 50 megapixels is also said to be on board. Other rumors state that an LTE limited Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-chipset takes over the drive. There is a 6.6-inch OLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate and 1440p resolution as well as IP68 protection against water and dust. The battery has a capacity of 5,000 mAh battery and charges with 100 watts by cable and 50 watts wirelessly.
The Huawei P60 series should arrive in March.
