It looks like we won’t be waiting too long for the Huawei P60 Pro to launch, as the phone is rumored to be scheduled to arrive sometime this spring. Over the past couple of years, Huawei has gone from two major flagship launches a year to an annual release schedule, but the company seems to have overcome some of the issues it had with US restrictions, and is going back to the old schedule.
Huawei P60 and P60 Pro appear in first 3D images
Just a few months ago we saw the Mate 50 series, with a slightly more “mannered” design when talking about the camera module. But Huawei seems to want to attract attention again with the P60 series, especially the P60 Pro. New images, based on previous leaks such as development plans and unofficial images of the Chinese company’s next flagship, reveal the full design. These were taken by a 3D artist named NoilNDI, who posted them on his Twitter account.

The Huawei P60 appears to be a flat screen phone, but still adopts a design with many curved lines. The corners of the device are notably curved, while the back has almost no completely straight edges, being made of curved glass on all sides. The camera module appears to house a large main camera, positioned in the centre of the camera island, with two smaller cameras at the top and bottom. The screen is broken only at the top by a punch-hole camera cutout.
Incidentally, that’s what we see on the P60 Pro, too, but it’s all seemingly more accentuated. For example, the Huawei P60 Pro is even more curved, also featuring a screen with edges that continue down the sides, while the main camera protrudes from the camera island groove. We can see, however, that on the Pro model we’re dealing with a periscope-style zoom camera module, as well as more integrated sensors in this area.
Both cameras are decorated with the Ximage logo, Huawei’s new proprietary branding for camera technologies developed in its own labs. Ximage is already replacing the Leica branding since the Mate 50 models and will continue to do so in the future.
Hardware could be comparable to other flagships, but without 5G
In terms of hardware specs, we can expect 120Hz OLED screens on both models, with QHD resolution on the Pro and Full HD on the “standard” P60. New information suggests that Huawei is reportedly getting its hands on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips, replacing the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that was originally slated to be integrated into the P60 series. Of course, these chips will have the 5G modem disabled.

Cameras will feature 50 megapixel sensors for the main and ultra-wide camera and 64 megapixels for the zoom camera.
Of course, all of this information, from the 3D images of the phones to the hardware specs list are based on rumors, so they could be significantly different at the time of the official announcement. However, the history of the last few years has shown us that most leaks of this kind are rarely completely false, being based at least partially on real information.
