Honor has officially announced a pair of new devices: Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro about six months after the previous generation. The Pro model is the first device in the world to come with the Snapdragon 778G Plus chipset, an upgraded 778G edition from Qualcomm that guarantees an improvement of up to 20 percent in performance. The regular model, however, is left with the familiar Snapdragon 778G processor.
The Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro have an OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, but in the Pro model it is 6.78 inches and slides to the sides, according to the manufacturer for a “smoother” feeling in the hand. The Honor 60 comes with a convex display just left and right, measuring 6.67 inches.
Another difference was recorded in the field of photography. The Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro have a main sensor with a resolution of 108 megapixels, but the Pro model comes with a 50 megapixel sensor with a wide lens. In the standard model, the wide lens comes with an 8-megapixel sensor identical to that of the Honor 50. Both devices also come with a depth sensor, and a selfie camera capable of detecting hand gestures for running non-contact applications (50 megapixels in the Pro, 32-megapixel Pixel in the regular model).
Both devices have a battery with a capacity of 4,800 mAh, with support for fast charging with a power of up to 66 watts, which allows charging of the battery up to half in about 15 minutes. Both also come with the relatively new Android 12 operating system, which has the Magic UI 5.0 interface installed.
In terms of prices, in China the Honor 60 will sell starting at $ 425 for a model with 8 GB of working memory and 128 GB for file storage, while the Pro model will start at $ 580 for a model with 8 GB -Beight memory and 256GB of storage. There are currently no details on the pair’s global marketing plans.
