HUAWEI introduced its flagship Mate 60 series a few weeks ago, which stirred some debate regarding the chips employed in these phones. Early this week, during its Autumn Full-Scenario launch event, the company unveiled the premium models of the series: the Mate 60 Pro+ and the Mate 60 RS ULTIMATE DESIGN.
Early this month, the Mate 60 Pro+ launched with its distinctive design, featuring a Danqing arc design and a leather-like finish achieved through a nano-scale metal double-dyeing process. But, the company didn't disclose the price of the Mate 60 Pro+ smartphone launch time.
In addition to these design alterations, both the Mate 60 Pro+ and the Mate 60 RS share identical specifications. They both boast a fresh 6.82-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate incorporating LTPO (1–120Hz) technology and have an In-display fingerprint sensor.
Conversely, the Mate 60 RS showcases a star diamond pattern on its ceramic back. It boasts an Octagon-shaped camera module and a display protected by the new Xuanwu tempered Kunlun glass. This second-generation Kunlun glass with Xuanwu tempered technology offers a 300% increase in scratch resistance and a 100% increase in drop resistance.
Furthermore, these displays offer an impressive 1.07 billion-color palette and support 1,440Hz PWM dimming. They also feature a triple punch-hole design housing a 13MP front camera and a 3D depth sensor for facial recognition. Notably, they introduced support for satellite calls, marking them as the first smartphones to offer this capability.
The camera setup found on both the Mate 60 Pro+ and the Mate 60 RS comprises a trio of rear cameras: a 48MP ultra-sensing primary camera featuring a variable physical aperture ranging from F1.4 to F4.0 along with a 40MP ultra-wide lens, and a 48MP telephoto camera capable of 3.5x optical zoom, with a remarkable 100x zoom range. Additionally, users have the option to capture macro shots using the telephoto lens.
While the specific processor for these phones hasn't been officially disclosed, it is anticipated to be the same Kirin 9000s SoC as the Pro version. The company has confirmed that the phones are equipped with Ark multimedia, scheduling, and graphic engines, which work together to enhance overall performance. Both devices feature a 5000mAh battery that supports rapid charging of up to 88W, along with 50W wireless fast charging and 20W reverse wireless charging, mirroring the capabilities of the Mate 60 Pro.
