Huawei Mate 60 could be thick and it may be for an interesting reason



Huawei Mate 60 series

Huawei Mate 60 will be the flagship of the second half of this year, and it could be thick in appearance. This may be a new move played by the company but it also suggests an interesting possibility.

According to the input coming from Weibo tipster FixedFocus, Huawei Mate 60 will be thick in width but the actual size increment is still not revealed. However, the tipster mentioned that it could be for a special reason.

What could be the reason?

Aside from all of these aspects, the Huawei Mate 60 series could bring a missing functionality to Huawei smartphones. What is it? Well, we’re talking about 5G. Huawei is the first smartphone company in the world to bring 5G to phones. The company started its journey using Balong 5000 5G chip alongside Kirin 980 chipset.

The first phone to equip with a combination of Kirin 980 + Balong 5000 chip was Huawei Mate 20 X 5G. The device was huge standing at 7.2 inches in screen size. Therefore, Huawei made it so big to store both modem and chipset together to enable 5G.

Balong 5000 is also the world’s first chipset that supports both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures for 5G. With non-standalone, 5G network architecture is built on top of legacy 4G LTE networks, whereas standalone 5G, as the name implies, will have its own independent architecture.

Since it was an early-stage 5G product, the phone was packed with a high-quality heat management system. Note that Huawei later launched Kirin 990 5G integrated processor with the Huawei P40 series.

We are now getting the point of view here, Huawei Mate 60 could have a new 5G solution. And this may not be embedded in the chipset because it’s using Qualcomm Snapdragon.

Matter of fact is that if Huawei is using Qualcomm SoC and it’s 4G, then Huawei will only have to use the 5G modem separately. This will contribute to thickness due to extra module hardware. Therefore, the company could lead us towards the 5G network in this good old way, which is already mastered by the tech maker.

Currently, there’s no confirmation available on this matter, and will have to wait for more information. Therefore, stay connected.
