Honor announces the Honor 60 range

Honor, the former sub-brand of Huawei, drawn from the Chinese tech giant last year, announced the launch of its latest mobile phones in the Chinese market.

Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro are two mid-range phones equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus processor.

Other than that, they are very similar to the Honor 50 series phones released earlier this year, as each phone has a dual-ring camera on the back.

The main new feature of these two new machines is the gesture control support. You can perform playback modes such as OK gestures, raising your hand to control the camera (such as switching between front and back camera), or activate pictures in a picture.

The phone can recognize up to five gestures, and Honor said this feature makes video vlogging easier than ever.

It should be noted that Honor is not the first smartphone company to join the move. Many other companies like Google and LG have tried similar features as well.

These controls are often slow and imprecise. Therefore, the new technology from Honor still has to prove itself quite a lot.

Both phones have a triple rear camera. The Honor 60 Pro has a 108MP main lens, 50MP ultra wide-angle macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The biggest improvement here is the ultra-wide-angle lens, as the Honor 50 Pro has 8MP.

Honor 60 Pro is also equipped with a 50-megapixel HD selfie camera. At the same time, the traditional Honor 60 has a low-resolution 32-megapixel front camera. There is a triple rear camera with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens of low resolution, and there is no mention of the macro function.

Honor is based on the design of the Honor 50

Both phones use curved OLED screens with a refresh rate of 120Hz, but the Honor 60 Pro has a slightly larger screen (6.78 inches) and uses curved shapes on all four sides of the device. Honor 60's screen size is 6.67 inches and the left and right sides of the screen are curved.

Both phones are equipped with 4800 mAh batteries. And the maximum charging power of both phones is 66W, which is the same as the Honor 50, but less than the 100W fast charging of Honor 50 Pro.

Honor has not confirmed the global launch of the phone. However, it is worth noting that although these two phones have been launched outside of China, they can also come pre-installed with Google apps and services like the Honor 50.

At the same time, Huawei is still sanctioned by the United States, which bans the sale of mobile phones equipped with Google's own software.

So far, the Honor 60 series has been launched in the Chinese market, but the global launch has not been firmly planned. However, only a few months pass between the launch of Honor 50 in China and its launch in other parts of the world. So we don't have to wait long if the global launch is soon.

Both phones will be launched in China on December 10th. The Honor 60 8/128 GB version costs around $425 with 8/256 GB and 12/256 GB options, while the Honor 60 Pro 8/256 GB starts around 12/256 GB.
