(Pocket-lint) – Huawei could announce not one, but two new phones in March 2023, with the Mate 60 and P60 series rumored to produce together.
This would be a new approach for Huawei, which normally ships its two ranges several months apart. However, it is believed that the company is preparing to announce them simultaneously. But previous hopes that the phones could use Huawei’s in-house chips appear to have been dashed, with rumors indicating the company will use Qualcomm instead.
According to a leak, the Mate 60 series will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, codenamed SM8525. The device is also believed to be a 4G phone, which means there will be no high-speed cellular connectivity here.
Things could be even worse for the P60 series, with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 slated to be used here. Again, expect 4G only, which may or may not make a big difference in people’s buying choice. Whether 5G has been a big improvement for most people is up for debate, but there’s no doubt that the absence of 5G immediately makes any new phone feel outdated.
If Huawei does indeed intend to announce these two ranges in March, we should certainly expect to hear more about them soon enough – after all, leaks are hard to stop.
