After several rumors about specs and sample photos of the cameras, Huawei has finally announced the launch date for its P60 series. The new flagships will be launched on March 23 at 2:30 p.m. Beijing time. Also on stage will be the Mate X3 foldable smartphone and several other new products.
Huawei’s official Weibo post above left doesn’t give any further details. In the days leading up to the event, more Huawei P60 teasers are likely to appear. Based on the latest rumours, the P60 series will consist of at least two devices – a base model and the P60 Pro.
The Huawei P60 Pro should bring two 50 megapixel cameras with a Sony IMX888 main sensor and an IMX858 chip for the ultra wide camera. There’s also a telephoto lens with a 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor with 3.5x magnification. The regular P60 should launch with a 52-megapixel main camera (IMX789) alongside a 50-megapixel ultrawide (IMX858) and a 16-megapixel telephoto camera (IMX351). Both Huawei smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 chipsets. It’s likely an LTE-only version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The foldable Huawei Mate X3 is rumored to offer next-gen satellite communication capabilities. Apparently, you can use it to not only send text and voice messages via satellite, but also to receive them.
