On March 23, 2023, the highly anticipated Huawei P60 series was launched, marking the triumphant return of the mobile camera champion to the industry after a two-year hiatus. The Huawei P60 series is comprised of three phones: the Huawei P60, Huawei P60 Pro, and Huawei P60 Art. Each phone boasts its own unique features and capabilities, catering to the diverse needs and preferences of users.
At the rear of the phone, the Huawei P60 series features a revolutionary innovative camera layout, which emphasizes the thought and precision that went into designing the camera setup. This exquisite design is brought to life by XMAGE technologies, taking mobile photography to the next level.
Huawei P60 Series Display
The Huawei P60 Pro is a smartphone that features a quad-curved OLED display, providing a seamless viewing experience. It has a large 6.67-inch screen that supports high-dynamic photos and videos, with a 1-120Hz LTPO adaptive refresh rate that reduces power consumption by 29%. Additionally, the P60 Pro comes with X-True Huawei’s immersive display technology, which helps it achieve dual certification of professional color accuracy from TUV Rheinland.
One of the standout features of the P60 Pro’s display is its ability to perform well in different lighting conditions. It offers higher contrast in bright environments and more detail in dark environments. The phone also has an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 93.1%, meaning that most of the front of the device is taken up by the display.
The P60 Pro is also built to withstand the elements, with an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Overall, the combination of a quad-curved OLED display, adaptive refresh rate, and immersive display technology make the Huawei P60 Pro a compelling choice for those seeking a high-quality smartphone display.
Huawei P60 Series Cameras
The Huawei P60 series boasts impressive camera capabilities, including the industry’s first super-spotting main camera with F1.4-F4.0 ten-speed physical smart variable aperture technology. This allows the camera to capture more light than other flagship phones, resulting in clearer photos in low-light environments. The P60’s camera setup includes a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom and OIS.
The P60 Pro takes things even further with a 48-megapixel 3.5x optical zoom periscope telephoto camera and a world-first super-large aperture of f/2.1. This camera also features the industry’s first super-concentration optical image stabilization hardware, ensuring that zoomed-in shots remain steady and shake-free. Additionally, the P60 Pro’s periscope camera can capture impressive details even at 200X zoom, making it possible to photograph subjects like the moon and other far-off objects.
The Huawei P60 series comes with a new XD Fusion Pro texture engine for the main camera, which helps capture clear and detailed photos in low-light environments, as well as during sunrises and sunsets. The engine also helps record moving moments more effectively, resulting in smoother and more natural-looking videos.
The Huawei P60 series supports a variety of video shooting modes that enable users to capture high-quality and colorful videos. One of the key features is the telephoto night mode, which makes it easy to shoot ultra-clear night videos with delicate textures in every frame. Additionally, the HDR Vivid high-dynamic video mode helps make night images more layered and vibrant.
Other video shooting modes supported by the P60 series include telephoto night scene video, super macro time-lapse photography, HDR Vivid high-dynamic video, and 4K time-lapse photography.
The Huawei P60 series is the world’s first mass smartphone that supports two-way Beidou satellite messages, which is a notable feature for communication in areas without ground network signals. This means that users can send and receive messages even in remote locations or areas with weak or no mobile network coverage.
In addition, the P60 series is equipped with Lingxi communication technology solution, which includes the Lingxi antenna, Lingxi network, and Lingxi algorithm. This triple innovation technology adopts new antenna technology and a multi-mode low-radiation antenna. The low-frequency signal enhancement is 2dB+, and the mid-high frequency signal enhancement is a super signal of 1.5dB+.
The Huawei P60 Pro features a built-in 4810mAh battery that supports 88W wired fast charging. With this charging technology, the battery can be charged up to 50% in just 10 minutes. The P60 Pro also supports 50W wireless charging and 7.5W wireless reverse charging. Additionally, the phone comes with an 88W charger that has both an A-port and C-port 2-in-1.
