Honor has given birth to the iPhone and Pixel’s child and they named it the Honor 60 SE

It looks cute. Sadly though it’s not a happy family

Honor has released a new midrange 5G phone in China called the Honor 60 SE. It made headlines as it has a familiar look, particularly on how the cameras are arranged at the back. It’s quite fruity indeed. The front also reminds us of the Pixel 6 albeit there’s more screen to it.

The SE series is usually the more affordable version of the base variant, and the 60 SE is no different. The phone has a squarish yet slim form factor with an edge-to-edge screen. The rear has a glossy finish mimicking the looks and texture of glass and this is also where the triple camera setup “inspired” from the iPhone 12 and 13 Pro series reside.

Speaking of the screen, it’s a 6.67in. FHD+ OLED with 120Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, 10-bit colours, and HDR10 support for a truly sharp and immersive viewing experience. The phone is equipped with the Mediatek Dimensity 900 chip which means it has the ability to access 5G services unlike its former parent, Huawei.

In terms of battery and charging, it has a 4300mAh battery with 65W fast charging. Honor and Huawei don’t usually employ the largest batteries but they compensate for it by complementing it with very fast charging rates. At the back is the 64mp main camera, and two other snappers. Since the Honor 60 uses an 8mp ultrawide and a 2mp depth sensor, it’s more than likely we’ll be seeing two identical cameras for the 60 SE.

The phone runs on MagicUI 5.0 out of the box based on Android 11. If you can recall, there’s also another phone that resembles the iPhone 13 but runs HarmonyOS and is intended for the heavily budget-oriented. It’s from Gionee and it’s called the G13 Pro.

Jade Green variant of the Honor 60SE

The Honor 60 SE is available in China starting 17th February. It has 8GB RAM and two storage options: 128GB and 256GB. The former starts at CNY2,199 (~Php 17.7K) while the latter would cost CNY2,499 (~Php 20.2K). It has three colours: Jade Green, Black, and Silver.
