Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, has been steering his company through difficult times for several years. However, neither he nor his team seems to have lost their passion for photography. The CEO posted this “random photo” of an unnamed Huawei smartphone – which can only be the upcoming Huawei P60 Pro.
If you look closely, you will also find the appropriate references in the Weibo post linked below. The post is marked “from Huawei P60 Pro”. The image is believed to be from the telephoto camera, as were a series of P60 Pro test images from last week. The telephoto camera is said to have a 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor and a 3.5x lens. The sensor reportedly has an RYYB color filter, a longtime Huawei specialty.
The test photo from the Huawei boss was more difficult to take than it might appear at first glance. The dynamic range is quite wide between the artificially lit building and the inky black background. In addition, the Huawei P60 Pro also resolves details in the moon.
Huawei P60 Pro charges with 100 watts
The other cameras are said to be two 50 megapixel modules – a Sony IMX888 under the main camera and an IMX858 for the ultra wide. According to unconfirmed rumors, the Huawei P60 Pro is based on a 6.6-inch QHD+ display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 1,920 Hz PWM dimming. The battery has a capacity of 5,000 mAh and charges with 100 watts. There is also an IP68 rating for protection against water and dust and HarmonyOS 3.0 as the operating system.
The first leak assumed a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, but later reports put a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in play instead. Both are 4G chips due to ongoing trade restrictions. A base Huawei P60 is also expected, which should have a 52/50/16 megapixel camera setup. The matching sensors are an IMX789, an IMX858 and an IMX351 for the zoom camera.
The Huawei P60 series is expected to be officially launched later this month.
