From China to Europe, it’s a journey that each product of the big mobile industries has to make. While it is expected in May of this year, the Huawei P60 Pro sows the doubt following its presentation by Huawei. The Xiaomi 13 Pro that has finally come is fulfilling its promises with its last generation processor, its large screen and its cameras. The question on our minds is whether we should still wait for a better smartphone? We discuss it here, identifying the best between the Huawei P60 Pro and the Xiaomi 13 Pro. 

Is the Huawei P60 Pro screen better than the Xiaomi 13 Pro?

The Huawei P60 Pro lands with a 6.67-inch, Full HD+ OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The surface of 107.7 cm2, presents a resolution of 1220 x 2700 pixels where the density is 444ppp. The screen-to-body ratio is 89.8% for a refined display, with rounded edges. This screen can present almost a billion colors without deteriorating them. A protection has been admitted; it is the Kunlun Glass. 


The screen of the Xiaomi 13 Pro is of the same type as its opponent of the day with an equal refresh rate. The brightness available on the screen can reach 1200nits, depending on the level set. The size on the other hand is 6.73 inches for 1440 x 3200 pixels with a density of 522ppp. The screen area measures 108.9cm2, for an aspect ratio of 89.6%. Nothing to complain about, the screen of the Xiaomi 13 Pro is largely larger with a better pixel definition. A protection against shocks has also been placed and this time, it is a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus that played this role. 

Is the Huawei P60 Pro chipset more powerful than the Xiaomi 13 Pro?

The components of the Huawei P60 Pro are administered by HarmonyOS 3.1 for the Chinese versions of the smartphone. EMUI is the system embedded in the smartphones that will be made available in the European zone. Only, Google services such as Google Play are not supported. It will therefore be necessary to download its applications from the official sites of the providers. Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G is the processor integrated in Huawei’s P60 Pro, having 8 cores for processing tasks. Graphics requirements are handled by the Adreno 730 GPU. User data storage is from the 256GB or 512GB available depending on the P60 Pro model. A slot shared with the SIM space allows the insertion of a reduced support memory allowing to add up to 256GB. 

On the other side, the snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the processor of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, with a frequency of about 3.2GHz. The OS present is Android 13 which supports the latest features and applications developed. MIUI 14 is the interfacing application that has been superimposed on the OS for a new software design. Here, it is the Adreno 740 that makes the law in terms of graphics. Graphics-intensive applications will be able to reach their full potential, without losing details. The Xiaomi 13 Pro has been designed in 4 models: 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM, 512GB 12GB RAM. The storage technology used for the 128GB spaces is UFS 3.1 and version 4.0 is de rigueur on the rest.

Betting on a good battery is a strategy that deceives very little, only here it does not matter. Indeed, the opponents of the day both present batteries with a capacity of about 4800mAh. As you can see, these batteries are non-removable and of the Li-Po type, as on the predecessors of the smartphones. The battery of the Huawei P60 Pro admits 88w in wired charge and 50W for a wireless recharge. While the Xiaomi’s battery goes further, with 120w for wired charging, 50W wireless and 10w in reverse charging.
