Huawei has been one of the few smartphone manufacturers this year to stick with purely glass covers for its P60 series. However, it appears that the company was originally planning to release an eco-leather variant of the P60 Pro.
A prototype of the eco-leather P60 Pro has surfaced online, revealing a unique design that combines two different leather textures. The result is a striking and eye-catching phone, but it’s unclear why Huawei has decided not to release it, YET!
One possibility is that the eco-leather variant was simply too different from the rest of the P60 series. The lineup is known for its vibrant colors and playful designs, and the eco-leather variant would have stood out in a negative way.
Another possibility is that Huawei was concerned about the durability of the eco-leather. In recent months, there have been reports of eco-leather phone cases breaking easily. Huawei may have been worried that the same thing would happen with the eco-leather P60 Pro.
Whatever the reason, it’s clear that Huawei has some interesting ideas for future P-series phones. The eco-leather P60 Pro prototype is a prime example of that, and it will be interesting to see if any of its features make it into future models.
The Mate series is also a possibility for the eco-leather design. The Mate series is known for its more premium and professional look, and the eco-leather variant would fit in well with that aesthetic. We’ll have to wait and see what Huawei decides to do with the eco-leather P60 Pro prototype.
