Honor 60 Announced China with Vlogging focused Gesture Controls

Honor, the former Huawei sub-brand that split from the Chinese tech giant last year, has announced its latest handsets for the Chinese market. The 60 and 60 Pro are two mid-range handsets powered by Qualcomm’s recent Snapdragon 778G Plus processor.

They are very similar to the Honor 50 series phones released earlier this year, right down to having similar dual-ring camera bumps on the rear of each phone. A notable new feature for both new phones is support for hand gesture controls, which let you perform actions like making the “Okay” gesture or raising your hand to perform camera controls like switching between its front and back cameras, or enabling picture-in-picture mode.

The phone can recognize five hand gestures in total, and Honor says features like these make vlogging “easier than ever.” is far from the first smartphone company to have added hand gestures like these, with everyone from Google to Samsung and LG having experimented with similar features. These controls tended to be laggy and inexact in the past, so Honor’s tech has a lot to prove.

Phones have triple rear camera setups for when you get filming. On the 60 Pro, there’s a 108-megapixel primary camera, a 50-megapixel combined with an ultrawide and macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The improvement is with the ultrawide, which was only 8 megapixels on the 50 Pro. The 60 Pro also has a high-resolution 50-megapixel selfie camera.The regular Honor 60 has a lower resolution 32-megapixel front-facing camera, triple rear cameras with a lower resolution 8-megapixel ultrawide, and no mention of macro photography capabilities.
