While it has been barely six months since HONOR announced the 50 series, the brand announced the 60 Series with a vanilla and Pro model in China. The 60 series may look similar to the 50 series, but the former settles for a triple rear camera setup and both variants go for curved displays–the Pro model getting a more sophisticated quad-curve display. Like their predecessors, the HONOR 60 series debut a new Qualcomm processor the Snapdragon 778G+.

As the naming implies, the Snapdragon 778G+ is a higher-clocked variant with its Kryo 670 Prime Core running at 2.5Ghz (vs. 2.4Ghz), along with an improved Adreno 642L GPU.

Both phones have support for DCI-P3, 10-bit color, and a 120hz refresh rate.
