Apple has been an inspiration and an industrial standard for many OEMs both large and small. Few days ago, we saw Gionee getting inspired by the design of iPhone 13, on her G13 Pro entry-level smartphone. And today, a mainstream phone maker is borrowing camera design clues from the Pro model of the same.
Here is Honor 60 SE, the smaller variants of the standard 60-series announced back in December of 2021. But instead of offering consistent camera module seen on the flagship models, Honor seems to be totally inspired by the triangular camera design of Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro.
But design and look is where it all stops. Honor 60 SE has it own sensors, and there are completely different from Apples’. The 60 SE camera sensors includes a 64-megapixel lens with PDAF and F/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel 112° Ultrawide snapper, then a third 2-megapixel depth shooter.
The 60 SE itself comes in a 6.67-inches screen with 1080 x 2340 pixels. The screen panel is OLED with curved edges and it has 120Hz refresh rating. There is also a dot notch in the middle housing a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
The standard Honor 60 and 60 Pro of last year are both powered by Snapdragon 778G from Qualcomm. This CPU is ditched in favor Dimensity 900 on the 60 SE, backed by Mali-G68 MC4 GPU, 8GB RAM and either 128 / 256 Gigs of built-in non-extendable storage.
Security options on the phone includes an in-display fingerprint scanner, usual Android locks, as well as FaceID. The phone has a 4300mAh battery with 66W SuperCharge fast charger, while Google Android 11 with Magic UI 5.0 is available out of the box.
Color options on the Honor 60 SE includes Black, Green and Blue and priced as follows
- 8GB + 128GB = 2,199 yuan or $345
- 8GB + 256GB = 2,499 yuan or $392
The phone is currently on preorder in China, with full availability pushed to 18th of February.
