Comprehensive Description About the Topic

Through this article, we will discuss the big news about the Huawei Mate 60 series’ reaching the mark of 30 million sales in China. We also talk about the company’s achievement despite the US ban, and how the company managed to bring back its Kirin chipset series and 5G for its newest flagships. We also talk about the Huawei Mate 60 Pro which is the flagship device in the series and draws most of the attention.

The Huawei Mate 60 sells strongly in China as the company overcomes the US Ban with Innovative Tech

Huawei saw its market share shrink with the US ban that severely affected its business. The company’s smartphones lost relevance, and the brand had to reinvent itself in the market. After some troublesome years, the company managed to overcome the challenges. We’re seeing a revival in the smartphone business with the Huawei Mate 60 series’s strong sales.

Huawei is gaining strong traction in its home market. Since Google services are banned in China, Huawei smartphones which lack them are not disadvantageous for users. The Huawei Mate 60 series runs on Harmony OS. The OS includes Huawei Mobile Services and the company’s proprietary App Store. This is a limitation for some users in foreign markets, where Google has a strong domain with its Mobile services. However, in China, the company is growing strongly.

The sanctions meant to halt Huawei’s growth, boosted their innovation

Interestingly, the sanctions meant to halt Huawei’s progress, have instead fuelled innovation. The company managed to overcome the challenges and bring back the Kirin series, even though it has a 7nm manufacturing process that lags behind the current 4nm cutting edge. Even though, this shows Huawei’s strength in responding to the sanctions. The company also developed its HarmonyOS NEXT which means a final goodbye for its past in Android.

The US decision not to restrict older but critical pieces of lithography equipment like DUV machines produced in the Netherlands and elsewhere from being shipped to China was a massive loophole that China took full advantage of. Thanks to this loophole and the efforts to overcome challenges in production, SMIC managed to produce new 7nm chips and deliver for Huawei’s Mate 60 series.

Huawei Mate 60 Pro – Meet Huawei’s latest flagship

It’s a big comeback for the smartphone series, and looking at the high-end Huawei Mate 60 Pro we can see the device’s appeal.

In terms of optics, the phone features a 50 MP main camera with OIS, a 48 MP periscope telephoto shooter, and a 12 MP ultrawide snapper. The company’s XMAGE camera division fine-tunes the camera setup. The front-facing setup brings a unique design; It’s like a triple-punch hole without any notch.
