Don’t get this for the hefty price

With the P60 Pro, Huawei brings a premium flagship to the Netherlands. It has a great set of cameras, a fast chip, and lightning-fast charging. However, it lags behind in other areas. Read here what is the situation with Huawei P60 Pro.

Read on after the announcement.

Huawei P60 Pro is now available in the Netherlands

Huawei introduced the P60 Pro in March 2023. This smartphone falls under the premium flagship and has impressive specifications. The smartphone is now also available in the Netherlands. We tell you everything about the smartphone. That way you’ll know exactly what to expect for the hefty suggested retail price of €1,199.

Huawei P60 Pro specifications don’t lie. The smartphone has a 6.67-inch LPO-OLED screen with an adaptive refresh rate of up to 120Hz. It sounds technical, but it simply means that the screen only looks smooth when it should, eg when scrolling. If the page is static, the refresh rate will drop to extend battery life.

This battery is 4,815 mAh, which is good, but not exceptional. What is remarkable is the speed of wireless charging. That’s a maximum of 50 watts, while the average smartphone does it at 15 watts. The P60 Pro wirelessly charges at a maximum of 88W. There is also 8 or 12 GB of RAM on board and 256 or 512 GB of storage.

On the back of the smartphone, you will find a wide array of cameras. There is a main camera, a telephoto lens, and a wide-angle lens. The first two are 48MP and the last 13MP, just like the selfie camera. All in all a versatile set that you’ll be prepared for in a multitude of situations.

Fast, but no 5G and Google apps

To date, the Huawei smartphone is fully equipped. The processor is also lightning fast. It’s the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 that we saw in several flagships late last year. However, the chip is not quite the same, as it does not support 5G internet on Huawei. This is still a result of US sanctions against Huawei.

How did that work again? Read our comprehensive explanatory article.

You can also see these restrictions in the software. Huawei P60 Pro runs on HarmonyOS with EMUI 13.1 skinned. This software does not have Google Play Services, which means that your beloved Google apps and Play Store are missing. Instead, Huawei offers its own App Store. There you will find some well-known smartphone apps, but not as many as in other Android smartphones.

As mentioned earlier, the suggested retail price for the Huawei P60 Pro is 1199 euros. So you get the 8/256 GB model. For the variant with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, you’re not paying any less. 1399 euros. You can then choose between the black version or the glossy matte finish.
