Huawei P60 and Mate X3 goes in production: Supply Chain
According to the Chinese supply chain news, Huawei has already started production of the P60 series and Mate X3 smartphones. These two phones are expected to unveil in the first half of this year.
However, that’s all there’s to reveal at the moment and no other predictions or inputs have been received so far on the specs of either of these devices.
Recently, the U.S. made a new move to ban Huawei’s business with all of those companies that are allowed to do business under special licenses. These companies include chipset maker, Qualcomm, which provides 4G mobile chips to Huawei, and Intel, which sells computer processors for its notebooks and PCs.
Afterward, there are speculations that Huawei could make changes in its plan to launch dual flagship this year due to the new restrictions. These two flagships are Huawei P60 and Mate 60 devices.
But Huawei has already stocked new inventory before this order could come into effect and that’s where it can launch the P60 series in good quantity. Meanwhile, the tech makes some swift changes in the Mate 60 lineup but we are yet to come in contact with those inputs.
What are these two phones:
Huawei P60 series is reported to come in four versions – P60, P60 Pro, P60 Ultra, and P60E. These will have powerful camera specs powered by XMAGE and variable aperture technologies.
It’s further revealed that Huawei Mate X3 will follow the foldable design concept of Mate X2 but with a light design and compact body form. These phones will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ chipset and the P60 series could be the first to run HarmonyOS 3.1 operating system.
