Once again we hear that Huawei could introduce two flagship models as soon as March
P60 series renders from Twitter tipster @RODENT950
The P60 Pro is rumored to sport a BOE-produced 6.6-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate carrying a QHD+ 1440 x 3200 resolution. That is an improvement from the 1228 x 2700 resolution used on the P50 Pro screen. A 50MP Sony IMX888 sensor will anchor the camera array on the back of the handset and a 50MP Sony IMX858 sensor could drive the ultra-wide camera while the telephoto camera could employ the 64MP OmniVision OV64B sensor. Once again, variable aperture will be a feature.
The P60 Pro will also connect to satellites when cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity is impossible in order to send and receive messages. And in emergency mode, the flashlight, GPS, and camera will still be available even when battery life is extremely low. The device will have an IP68 rating making it impervious to dust and able to be submerged in nearly 5 feet of (non-salt) water for up to 30 minutes. A front-facing 32MP selfie camera is available for selfies (which is why it’s called a selfie camera) and video chats.
Huawei still is blocked from offering 5G support on its phones
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will be under the hood although once again the chip has been tweaked to prevent it from working with 5G signals. This is part of the U.S. export rules that prevent the company from receiving cutting-edge chips from foundries that use American technology. At one time Huawei was TSMC’s second-largest customer after Apple, and Huawei does have its own HiSilicon semiconductor unit.
