Huawei P60 Pro expected in spring with high-end specs but no Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

Rumors that Huawei might launch two smartphone series in early 2023 seemed odd to say the least at the time they started circulating online, but now being closer to a possible launch, they are supplemented with new information. It looks like Huawei is going back to its old habits, which involves launching two flagship smartphone series a year, the first being the Huawei P60, which could debut in the next couple of months.

Huawei P60 Pro could launch in March

The company launched the Mate 50 series just a few months ago, continuing the company’s tradition of delivering high-performance cameras in a premium-built device. Even though it’s been almost a year between the Mate 40 and P50, and over a year between the P50 and Mate 50, it looks like we’re back to releases every six months, as we saw in Huawei’s pre-U.S. restrictions release schedule.

The P60 series looks set to debut sometime in March with a surprising design, if the new images we see online turn out to be real. Huawei is still adopting a largely rectangular island for the P60 Pro, which uses three sensors, with the one in the center equipped with a larger, somewhat centrally positioned lens. To perhaps accentuate the performance of this sensor, Huawei even makes its lens go a bit outside the confines of the camera island.

The Huawei P60 Pro is expected to come with a not quite next-gen chipset, but a last year’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, along with a 6.6″ display with 120Hz OLED panel and 3,200 x 1,440 pixel resolution, the first upgrade in years in resolution, and three advanced photo sensors: Sony IMX888 50-megapixel main camera, Sony IMX858 50-megapixel ultra-wide, and an OmniVision OV64B 64-megapixel zoom. This also suggests that the zoom will likely be a 3x optical, not 5x periscopic. The variable aperture function on the Huawei Mate 50 Pro will be retained on the P60 Pro.

With a 5,500 mAh battery and ncharging at 100W wired and 50W wireless, this could be one of the best devices when it comes to battery life, especially when you factor in the software optimization on HarmonyOS that uses AI to extend battery life. Of course, we don’t expect to see this phone equipped with 5G technology.

The Mate 60 model is thus not expected until the fall, with a new chipset, probably Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, also equipped with limited 4G modem. It will probably be a few more years before Huawei can again produce proprietary processors on modern manufacturing processes, so that it can integrate its own 5G modems, developed with proprietary technologies, without having to be subject to other countries’ restrictions.
