Huawei has already warned us not to consider it dead. Although the inability to use Google apps or strike commercial deals with American companies has done a lot of damage, the company believes it can find its own path thanks to its HarmonyOS 4 system and other in-house developments.
But Huawei is also aware that it needs to attract more attention to make up for the other shortcomings. Perhaps for this reason, the latest mobile phones are very eye-catching and come with unique or rare features in the industry.
The new Huawei Mate 60 Pro announced today in China also goes in this direction. While it appears that this isn’t the rumored Huawei 5G phone, it will feature other design quirks and components that set it apart.
Huawei and its three holes in the screen
The most striking feature of this Mate 60 Pro is undoubtedly the three holes in the screen, each for a different sensor. It’s something we’ve never seen before, but it makes perfect sense out in the world. Actually, this isn’t the first Huawei phone to feature three sensors on the front, but the Mate 50 Pro has been grouped into a notch or “notch” that pierces the top of the screen like iPhones. It was a necessary sacrifice to have more front cameras and one of the best Android facial recognition devices.
With the Mate 60 Pro, Huawei has succeeded in accommodating the sensors in their own hole, thus eliminating the “notch”. The result is a cleaner design, although seeing those three holes is also a bit odd. That’s probably because the idea involves holes to “merge” with the new notification island. HarmonyOS 4, a version of the iPhone 14 Pro’s “Dynamic Island.” However, Huawei has not yet shown any images of this device running HarmonyOS.
In fact, the launch of the Mate 60 Pro came as a bit of a surprise, and at first it wasn’t known what “hardware” it was based on. Initially, it was even thought that it could have 5G, but for now, it seems that it is based on the same eight-core Kirin 9000 processor, although the graphics are a recent development, a Maleoon 910. What has been confirmed is that the phone will have satellite communication, so you can make and receive calls from remote locations. However, it relies on the Xuanwu network, which is currently only available in China.
Photography has always been important to Huawei, and the Mate 60 Pro has a 50 MP main sensor with optical stabilization and variable aperture, a 12 MP wide-angle lens, and a 48 MP telephoto lens with optical stabilization. In addition to Huawei’s well-known technologies, it includes a new 4D prediction mode aimed at preventing blurry images once and for all. All the sensors are located in a circle on the back of the phone, an evolution of Huawei’s design line with the Mate. The back is two-toned, mimicking the circle of cameras. Depending on the color combination, the top can be made of glass or leather.
The Huawei Mate 60 Pro does not yet have a confirmed date for Spain. In China, it will be available in three versions: 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB, although only the price of the 512GB version has been confirmed at 6,999 yuan (888 euros).
