Huawei Mate 60 Pro was made official in China a couple of days ago, and now, the company has launched the vanilla model in China. Honor Mate 60 is a slightly toned-down version of the Mate 60 Pro with a ¥5999 price tag, ¥1000 cheaper than the Pro model.

The design and build materials are almost identical to the Mate 60 Pro. So, there is a circular camera module on the rear with a triple camera setup, a two-tone design on the back, and the same four color options.

The main difference is on the front since the Mate 60 has a single hole punch instead of a triple hole punch. The vanilla Mate 60 has a periscope camera on the rear, which the Mate 60 Pro misses out on.

As for the specifications, the Huawei Mate 60 has a 6.69-inch 10-bit LTPO OLED panel with 1-120Hz refresh rate, 1440 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, 300Hz touch-sampling rate, and 2688 × 1216 pixels resolution. The SOC is reportedly the same as the Mate 60 Pro. The phone has a 4750mAh battery and supports 66W wired + 50W wireless + reverse wireless charging.

The triple camera setup includes a 50MP primary sensor with OIS and f/1.4-f/4.0 variable aperture, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 12MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom + OIS. The single selfie camera has a 13MP sensor.

Huawei Mate 60 is IP68 certified and has second-generation Kunlun Glass protection on the front. While the Mate 60 Pro is the world’s first phone with satellite calling, the Mate 60 does not have this feature. Instead, you can send text messages using satellite communication.

Huawei Mate 60 comes in four colors, and the 12GB + 512GB variant is priced at ¥5999 or around $823.
