Huawei Launches A Phone That Makes Calls Via Satellite

Huawei launched its new Mate 60 Pro phone without a huge teaser campaign, and the device comes with three holes in the screen, as the company integrated the front camera and the 3D ToF sensor.

The phone includes a 6.82-inch LTPO OLED screen with a resolution of 2720 x 1260 pixels and an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz, with the second generation of unbreakable Kunlun glass to protect the screen.

The phone comes with a 13-megapixel front camera that supports HDR for selfies and video calls, along with sensors and lasers for 3D face mapping for Face ID.

On the back, there is a triple camera, with a 50-megapixel main lens with optical image stabilization technology and PDAF, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 48-megapixel zoom lens that supports 3.5x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom.

Moreover, the rear camera supports the four-dimensional predictive focus tracking feature, so that the images do not become blurred, and many other modes, such as the artificial intelligence mode.

The Mate 60 Pro phone supports satellite communication capabilities in China, and this is a big step forward for satellite communication over traditional smartphones, especially since the rest of the industry promotes emergency services and text messages only, but this function is currently limited to China Telecom.

The device includes a 5000 mAh battery that supports 88-watt wired charging and 50-watt wireless charging, and it also supports 20-watt reverse wireless charging. The phone works with the HarmonyOS 4.0 user interface.

The phone has a rating of IP68, which means that it is resistant to submersion in water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, and protected from dust, without the need for additional cases or covers.

Huawei hasn’t confirmed which chipset the Mate 60 Pro is using, but a leaker claims it’s a Kirin with an octa-core CPU and a Maleoon 910 GPU.

If the leaks are to be believed, the dedicated GPU represents a major turn of events for Huawei.

The Mate 60 Pro is available with 12GB of RAM and three internal storage options, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.

There is no information about the price of the 256 GB or 1 TB version, but the 512 GB version is currently listed at $960.
