Honor's latest Android phone has a 6nm Snapdragon 778G+ and a 108MP camera

The Honor 60 series could make its global debut sometime early next year.

What you need to know

  • The Honor 60 series is now official.
  • Honor 60 Pro is the first to feature Qualcomm's upgraded Snapdragon 778+ chipset.
  • The new Honor 60 series phones also sport 108MP main cameras and support 66W fast charging.

Back in June this year, Honor announced the world's first phones powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 778G chipset. The company has now unveiled the first phone featuring the Snapdragon 778G+, a slightly faster version of the 778G.

The new Honor 60 Pro sports a 6.78-inch quad-curved OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Like the best Android phones on the market, the 60 Pro's display supports HDR10+ and touts 100% DCI-P3 coverage.

In the camera department, the Honor 60 Pro has a triple-lens setup featuring a 108MP main sensor with 9-in-1 pixel binning, a 50MP ultra-wide lens that doubles up as a macro shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone has a 50MP camera on the front with a 100-degree super-wide-angle lens.

The phone promises the "ultimate vlogging experience," thanks to its AI-powered gesture recognition technology. Content creators can use hand gestures to switch between the front and back cameras, picture-in-picture modes, and single and dual lenses.

The Honor 60 Pro packs a fairly large 4,800mAh battery with support for 66W wired charging. Honor claims a 15-minute charge will get you to 50%, which sounds quite impressive.

The vanilla Honor 60 comes with a 6.67-inch OLED display that is curved only on the sides. However, it offers the same FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 778G chipset, just like the Honor 50 series phones.

The Honor 60 also has a triple-camera setup on the back with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. As for selfies, the phone is equipped with a 32MP camera on the front. The rest of its key specs are more or less identical to the Pro model. On the software side of things, the new Honor 60 series phones will ship with Android 12-based Magic UI 5.0 out of the box.

The Honor 60 Pro has been priced at 3,699 yuan (about $580) for the 8GB/256GB version and 3,999 yuan (about $628) for the 12GB/256GB version. The vanilla Honor 60, on the other hand, starts at 2,699 yuan (about $424) and goes up to 3,299 yuan (about $518) for the top-end 12GB/256GB version.

Although the company hasn't confirmed any details yet, the new Honor 60 series could make its global debut sometime in early 2022.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race.

It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
