The unit pixel area of ​​the four-in-one mode reaches 2.4μm, while the aperture has been increased from f/1.85 to f/1.57, and the light input has increased by 38.8 percent.

    In night scenes, the super-outsole main camera offers better low-light shooting performance. The main camera uses a combination of a 48MP IMX598 sensor and the micro-head. IMX598 is also the main camera on the phone. The main camera has a 14mm equivalent focal length, which can achieve 114-degree ultra-wide-angle shooting without correction.

    Moreover, the camera comes with a customized Color Filter, which enhances the light transmittance of each channel of R/G/B, as well as the amount of light input by the hardware, is increased by 104 percent as compared to the previous generation. Aside from that, there is a night scene algorithm, tuned specifically for super wide-angle for night shooting.

Snapdragon 888 features Samsung’s 5nm process, integrated X60 baseband, 1+3+4 three-cluster structure, including 1 2.84GHz Cortex-X1 super core, 3 2.4GHz A78 performance cores, and 4 1.8GHz A55 efficiency core, compared with Snapdragon 865, CPU performance is improved by 25 percent.

    Moreover, the Adreno 660 graphics processor has been upgraded and compared to Snapdragon 865, the GPU performance has increased by 35 percent. It includes Spectra 580 image signal processor, Hexagon 780 sixth-generation AI engine, ISP performance is up to 35 percent, and AI computing power performance is up to 73 percent.


    The X60 Pro Plus has an eye-catching design and delivers flagship performance. It has dual main cameras which solves the problem of incompatibility of micro-head and super-outsole while delivering a richer image shooting experience.
