After the “Kamehameha” move by the U.S. over Huawei, the company dealt a major blow. Slowly, it is trying to regain some share with new smartphone launches. Alongside the Mate X3, the brand has now launched the flagship Huawei P60 series. In this article, let’s go through the specs, features, and expected price of the Huawei P60 series in Nepal.
Huawei P60 Series Overview:
The Huawei P60 Series comprises three models—P60, P60 Pro, and P60 Art. All of these phones share similar specs but the P60 Art is a China-exclusive model.
To begin with, Huawei has implemented a uniform design on the P60 and P60 Pro. Both siblings look identical with a rectangular camera module, placing the main sensor in a bigger circular rim in the middle. Both the vanilla P60 and Pro’s White color variants consist of a mother-of-pearl design with some artistic texture. Besides that, the other color options are Black, Emerald Green, and Purple, which has a plain matte finish.
On the other hand, P60 Art features a slightly different camera island with curved asymmetrical sides. While from the front side, all of the models share the same look with an equal dimension of 161 x 74.5 x 8.3mm. They also bag an IP68 rating against dust and water drips. The P60 Art is available in Blue, Gold color options.
Coming to the display, the P60 series sports a 6.67-inch OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Full HD+ screen comes with LTPO tech for switching the refresh rate between 1-120Hz on all three models. On top of that, there are TÜV Rheinland Certifications (Color Accuracy & Precise Color Projection) on the displays.
Likewise, the quad curve display also gets the 1440 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming for eye protection and supports up to 300Hz touch sampling rate. And talking of display protection, the brand has infused “Kunlun” glass on the Pro and Art models while the vanilla P60 misses out on this.
As for the performance, the P60 series get the horsepower of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Due to Huawei’s inability to use Qualcomm’s 5G modem because of the ban and restrictions imposed by the U.S.A., this 5nm chipset can only support 4G connectivity. Nevertheless, the silicon still packs a punch in terms of performance and power with its prime Cortex X2 core at 3.2GHz and Adreno 730 GPU.
Memory-wise, the vanilla P60 is available in three configurations: 8/128GB, 8/256GB & 8/512GB while the P60 Pro can be availed in two configurations—8/256GB and 12/256GB variants. Meanwhile, the P60 Art comes with 12GB of RAM and either 512GB or 1TB of internal storage.
As for the software, the entire lineup boots on EMUI 13.1 for the global and HarmonyOS 3.1 for the Chinese region. And sadly, there is no GMS (Google Mobile Services) support for the OS.

The P-series is always known for state-of-the-art cameras. Here as well, Huawei has provided a capable camera setup across the board. The P60 houses a triple-camera setup with 48MP main (OIS), 13MP ultrawide, and 12MP telephoto (OIS) sensors. The main camera is capable of changing its aperture from f/1.4 to f/4.0.
Moving on, the P60 Pro also features the same 48MP main camera with variable aperture and OIS. Its telephoto camera is also a 48MP shooter backed by OIS. This 90mm periscope lens can digitally zoom up to 200X, aiming to compete against the likes of the S23 Ultra. And there is the same 13MP ultrawide lens here too.
The P60 Art also enjoys a triple-camera setup and borrows the same primary and telephoto lens from the Pro model. The ultrawide sensor gets a megapixel boost, making it a 40MP shooter.
Regardless of the models, all the siblings share an RYYB color filter for better low-light imageries and a 13MP front camera. On top of that, the Huawei Xmage lens branding follows all across.
Battery and Others
Fueling the P60 and P60 Pro is a 4815mAh battery that supports 66W fast charging on the former and 88W on the latter. The Art version packs a bigger 5100mAh silicon carbon cell with the same 88W charging speed support. Likewise, the entire lineup also extends 50W wireless charging support.
Talking of connectivity options, the P60 Series includes 4G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, USB Type-C 3.1, two-way satellite connectivity, and GPS. For biometrics security, there is an under-display fingerprint reader on all three phones.
