The Huawei P50 series is over a year old – the Huawei smartphones were launched in August 2021. The company doesn’t seem to have given up on the P-series flagships just yet. According to two new reports, the Huawei P60 and P60 Pro will be launched in March this year. And bring along better cameras, better displays and larger batteries.
The Huawei P60 Pro will reportedly have a 6.6-inch OLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 1,440 x 3,200 pixels. The P50 Pro, on the other hand, had a resolution of 1,228 x 2,700 pixels. The panel from BOE will support high-frequency PWM dimming at 1,920 Hz and will house a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
The main camera resolves 50 megapixels on a Sony IMX888 sensor, while the ultra-wide-shooter is upgraded to 50 megapixels. A Sony IMX858 is being discussed as a sensor. The telephoto camera could stick with the same 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor. The standard Huawei P60 gets a 52-megapixel main camera with an IMX789 chip, a 1/1.35-inch sensor with 1.12 µm pixels. There is also a 50 megapixel ultrawide camera (IMX858) and a 16 megapixel telephoto camera (IMX351).
Huawei P60 Pro with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G chipset
Both Huawei phones use the in-house XMAGE chip for image processing. Rumor has it that the variable aperture from the P50 Pro will also find its way into the new flagships. The P60 Pro is powered by a 4G version of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, powered by a 5,500mAh battery with 100W wired and 50W wireless charging. The P50 Pro had a Snapdragon 888 4G processor and a 4,360 mAh battery with 66 watts/50 watts of charging power.
The Huawei P60 series will likely inherit some features from the Mate 50 series, like the Kunlun tempered glass for the display. The smartphones will also have an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Also, they should support satellite communication. However, the latter will run on the Chinese BeiDou satellite network and may only work to a limited extent outside of China.
Huawei is yet to announce an official date and confirm that the P60 series will even launch. If the date in March is right, the first official teasers should come soon.
