Honor, the sub-brand that split from the Chinese tech giant last year, has announced its latest handsets for the Chinese market. The Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro are both mid-range phones powered by the same processor as the Honor 50 series phones, but they have the same dual-ring camera bumps on the rear of each phone.

The new phones have hand gesture controls, which allow you to perform actions like making the "Okay" gesture or raising your hand to switch between the front and back cameras. Honor says features like these make vlogging easier than ever.

On December 10th, it will be released in China.

Honor is not the first company to have added hand gestures like these, with everyone from Google to Samsung experimenting with similar features. Honor's tech has a lot to prove because of the laggy and inexact controls of the past.

The phones have triple rear cameras. The 60 Pro has a main camera that has a resolution of over 100 million images, a 50-megapixel combined ultrawide and macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The 50 Pro had an ultrawide that was only 8 mps. The 60 Pro has a 50-megapixel camera. The regular Honor 60 has a lower resolution front-facing camera, triple rear cameras with a lower resolution, and no mention of macro photography capabilities.

The Honor 60 has a 6.67-inch display that curves around its left and right sides, while the 60 Pro has a 6.78-inch display that curves around all four sides. The 50 Pro and 50 have 4,000 and 4,300mAh batteries, but the phones have 4,800 and 4,800mAh batteries, respectively. The Honor 50 and the Honor 50 Pro both charge at a maximum of 66W, which is the same as the Honor 50.

If the Honor phones were to release outside of China, they would come with the same features as the Honor 50, just like the apps and services of the internet giant. US sanctions prevent it from shipping phones with software from a company other than Google.

The Honor 60 series has only been announced for the Chinese market, with no plans for a global launch. We shouldn't have to wait too long if there is a global release of the Honor 50 because there was only a matter of months between the launch in China and the rest of the world. Both phones will be available in China on December 10th. The Honor 60 will start at 2,699 and the Honor 60 Pro will start at 3,700.
