Honor 60 Pro Key Features
Design And Screen
The Honor 60 Pro continues using the design style of the previous generation. But there are new design elements as well. It still uses the quad-curved design, which was first introduced last year by the Honor Magic. The corner transition is more rounded.
The screen size of the Honor 60 Pro is 6.78 inches. It boasts a resolution of 2652*1200 pixels, 429PPI pixel density, screen contrast of 500W:1, DCI-P3 100% wide color gamut, HDR10+ certification, 1.07 billion color display, 120Hz screen refresh rate, etc. It is really a good OLED screen.
At the same time, it also supports 4096-level hardware dimming and 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming. They reduce flicker while ensuring the display effect. Also, the display has passed the Rheinland TUV low blue light certification.
On the opposite side, the Honor 60 Pro continues the previous ring design. But the back shell now has a brand new visual effect. It uses very complex diamond technology and polishing effects to create a unique effect.
Hardware and Performance
The Honor 60 Pro sports the world’s first Snapdragon 778G Plus processor. The latter uses TSMC’s 6nm process technology. It consists of 4 A78 architecture cores, the highest frequency of which is up to 2.5GHz. it supports unique optimizations such as multiple ISPs.
At the same time, the Honor 60 Pro has also created a sub-pixel super-sensing touch experience for FPS games. It improves the direct coordination between touch and screen refresh rates. Every time the finger moves 1/8 pixel, the content of the game screen will be refreshed simultaneously.
Under the hood, the phone also carries a 4800mAh large battery. It comes with an original smart power-saving engine, which can bring a long battery life experience. At the same time, it also supports 66W wired fast charging. In effect, it will charge to 60% in 15 minutes.
In other aspects, the Honor 60 Pro supports the latest technologies such as WiFi 6, NFC, dual 5G, and Bluetooth 5.2.
The imaging system is one of the biggest highlights of the Honor 60 Pro. Its rear camera comes with a 100MP ultra-clear main camera, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens (122°), and a 2MP depth of field lens. The front camera has a 50MP resolution. Thus, this AI super-sensing lens is comparable to a top-level flagship camera.
In fact, the Honor 60 Pro is aimed at vloggers. It can recognize five gestures in the air through the front camera. The phone has further improved the “one-click filming” experience, adding a more simple and easy-to-operate one-click shooting function.
On the basis of the Honor 50 series “micro-movie” mode, the phone has got 20 more video shooting templates. Users can start recording with one button, follow the shooting guidelines to easily complete story shooting, and realize one-click sharing and other operations.
The Honor 60 Pro offers two storage versions, including 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB. They cost 3699 yuan and 3999 yuan, respectively ($581 and $628).
