Honor officially launched its new Honor 60 series at a special event in China. This time, the Chinese company chose to bring two phones into the series, compared to the Honor 50 series, where three devices, including the Honor 50 SE, arrived. However, we could see Honor expanding the series in the coming weeks to provide more options.
The Honor 60 series comes with curved OLED displays, supports 66W fast charging, Snapdragon processors, and some features one would normally associate with high-end devices. Both smartphones include 108MP primary sensors that include special AI features that target vloggers and creators, according to the company.
Design wise, the Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro look similar, with a single punch hole at the top. The Pro model does not feature the capsule-shaped punch hole like the Honor 50 Pro, as it only carries a single camera. Both devices feature curved OLED panels. On the back, the Honor 60 series looks surprisingly like its predecessor, both sporting the round double-hump die.
