The US tried, but Huawei is still alive and kicking. In a surprising twist of fates, Huawei showed that it is still powerful as a technology company at this year’s MWC 2023. The company had to deal with multiple constraints, that severely affected its smartphone business. However, some of the brand’s iconic flagships are still around and kicking. Apparently, Huawei found a way to bring flagship devices at a faster pace, and now it’s moving up to launch the Huawei P60 Pro. As usual in the industry, we are starting to get a lot of teasers about smartphones. Today, Huawei CEO Richard Yu decided to build some hype for the upcoming device.
Huawei P60 Pro can take impressive nightscape shots
Huawei flagships may lack certain key features like 5G connectivity and Google Mobile services. These are two missing aspects for global customers. The latter is quite easy to bypass if you know the right methods, but it’s impossible to add 5G connectivity. While Huawei searches for a way to enable 5G on its devices, it keeps bringing flagships with just LTE. For some customers, LTE is more than enough. Despite these missing aspects, Huawei smartphones are still pretty good with their hardware, HarmonyOS features, and photography. Yeah, the Huawei development team has an undeniable passion for photography. Hence, these devices are always trying to innovate with new features and high quality. Apparently, the upcoming Huawei P60 Pro will follow the company’s legacy.
Gizchina News of the week
Richard Yu shared a “random photo” on Weibo showing the capabilities of a new phone. The Weibo post pretty much reveals this belongs to the Huawei P60 Pro. As per the report, this seems to belong to the telephoto camera. The phone is coming with a quite nice technology to enhance the zoom capabilities and keep the details. As per the report, this camera is a 64 MP OmniVision OV64B sensor with 3.5x zoom. Interestingly, the phone also brings an RYYB color filter.
The photo shows how impressive this phone can be for photography. Well, first it starts with a night environment – the biggest challenge is cameras. The second detail is that this is a zoomed photo. The device had enough dynamic range to keep the lights realistic and give enough detail. Of course, it’s up to you to believe in these “teaser photos”. But if the phone actually can shoot this kind of picture, then we will have a tough competitor for the flagship market.
Pro’s alleged specifications
The leaks also point to a 50 MP Sony IMX888 as the main camera, and a 50 MP IMX858 acting as the ultrawide shooter. The Huawei P60 Pro will also bring a 6.6-inch QHD+ display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 100W charging. There will also be an IP68 rating and HarmonyOS 3.0. Some rumors have been pointing to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU. However, new leaks point to the use of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Of course, the company will still keep using the 4G-only version of its CPU.
We will keep following the rumor mill and checking Richard Yu’s moves on Weibo. So far, the rumors point to the release of the Huawei P60 Pro later this month. Right now, the rumors also point to the launch of more devices under this series. The Huawei P60 is expected to complete the series. Also, we have high hopes for a Huawei P60 Lite. All these phones will be one more attempt to show that Huawei is still alive and well to bring good flagship devices. We expect these photos to hit the Chinese market at this first moment, but we can’t discard a global release a few months later. The rumors are pointing to the launch in late March.
The advantages of the Huawei P60 Pro: plenty of memory, large battery, fast charging, clear picture, smooth interface. The rest of the mobilespecs are also on top of the game. Unfortunately, the brightness margin of the Huawei P60 Pro will not be enough in most situations. However, in indoor conditions or on a cloudy day, brightness of Huawei P60 Pro is enough for comfortable work. On the other hand, low peak brightness is beneficial for Huawei P60 Pro battery life.
