Honor 60 Pro: New mid-range smartphone revealed in four colours with a quad-curved display
Honor has revealed the Honor 60 Pro, a device that bears many similarities with the Honor 60. As expected, the Honor 60 Pro has a Snapdragon 778G Plus SoC, a minor revision of the Snapdragon 778G found in the Honor 50 series. As Qualcomm shows on its website, the Snapdragon 778G Plus has a 100 MHz higher CPU clock speed than the Snapdragon 778G, but also considerably slower peak upload speeds over 5G.
The Honor 60 Pro relies on a 6.78-inch AMOLED display that has a steep curvature on all sides. Honor describes this as a quad-curved display, for reference. The large display has a 120 Hz refresh rate too, along with HDR10+ certification and a 50 MP front-facing camera situated beneath it.
Honor complements the front-facing camera with another 50 MP sensor on the back, used for ultra-wide-angle shots, and a 108 MP primary camera. Seemingly, Honor has opted for Samsung's ISOCELL HM2 camera that is popular among mid-range smartphones. Additionally, the Honor 60 Pro has a 2 MP depth sensor as a third rear-facing camera, although the other two cameras will do most of the heavy lifting.
Honor has equipped the Honor 60 Pro with a 4,800 mAh battery that supports 66 W fast charging, as well. For context, the Honor 50 Pro relies on a 4,000 mAh battery. Wireless charging continues to evade Honor's flagship smartphone series, though.
The Honor 60 Pro will be available in China in Bright Black, Jade Green, Juliet or Starry Sky. The handset starts at CNY 3,699 (~US$581) with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, but there is a 512 GB edition that costs CNY 3,999 (~US$629). There is no word on when Honor will unveil the Honor 60 Pro globally.
