Back in June, Honor announced the Honor 50 series with Google Mobile Services (GMS). The company has now announced its follow-up with the Honor 60 series. Here, we will be discussing the key specs, features, expected price in Nepal, and availability of Honor 60 and 60 Pro.

Honor 60 Pro Overview:

Design and Display 

Let’s start with the more premium of the two. Honor 60 Pro’s design is in line with its predecessor. It sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED panel with curves on all four sides and a resolution of 2652 x 1200 pixels. It’s a 10-bit panel with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. The display also supports HDR10+ and has a 120Hz refresh rate.

At the back, we get the same pill-shaped camera bump with two protruding circular rings. The phone is available in four colors: Bright Black, Jade Green, Starry Sky, and Juliet.

Performance and Memory

Honor 60 Pro is the first smartphone to feature the new Snapdragon 778G Plus chipset. As with other Plus refreshes from Qualcomm, this chip has overclocked Prime core. In addition, its GPU boasts 20% better performance than the standard 778G. The phone is available in two memory configurations: 8/256GB and 12/256GB.

Camera

Compared to its predecessor, Honor 60 Pro’s primary camera has remained unchanged. You get the same 108MP main sensor as the Honor 50 Pro. That being said, the ultrawide sensor has been upgraded to 50MP. It can also double as a macro camera. Completing the setup is a 2MP depth sensor.

Over on the front, there is a 50MP selfie camera with a 100° field of view. This time, Honor has gotten rid of the second ultrawide sensor. It also has AI-backed gesture recognition that Honor believes will help vloggers. Here, you can use gestures to control the camera.

Rest of the specs

60 Pro’s battery is now larger at 4,800mAh, but the charging speed has been lowered to 66W. To compare, its predecessor brought a smaller 4,000mAh battery but a faster 100W charging speed. Honor 60 Pro will ship with Magic UI 5.0 based on Android 11 out of the box. As for wireless connectivity, there is support for 5G, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, and Bluetooth 5.2.

Honor 60 Overview:

Moving on, the regular Honor 60 sports a marginally smaller 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2400 x 1808 pixels. But this one has curves on the sides only. Besides these, the rest of the display properties is the same as the Pro variant.

Honor 60 Color options

There is no performance improvement over its direct predecessor—the Honor 50. It still packs the vanilla Snapdragon 778G chip. There are no changes in the camera department either. It has the same 108MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, and 2MP portrait camera.
