Huawei’s new Pura 70 series offers four variants, with the Pura 70 Ultra standing out as the most impressive. We have covered the other 3 versions, Pura 70, 70 Pro and Pro +, in a different post here. Sharing similar specifications to the Pura 70 Pro+, it boasts a unique vegan leather back and an upgraded camera system, featuring a 1-inch main sensor with a retractable lens and variable aperture.

Huawei has introduced a retractable mechanism for the 50 MP main camera, which pops up when in use. This innovative rotating telescopic lens underwent rigorous testing, enduring 300,000 cycles of expansion and contraction. Additionally, the main shooter now sports a variable f/1.6 – 4.0 lens and a 22.5mm focal length, supported by the new XD Motion engine for capturing fast-moving objects.

The second module on the back houses a 50 MP telephoto lens with a 90 mm f/2.1 lens and OIS, offering 3.5x optical zoom. This telephoto camera also serves as a macro shooter, allowing close-ups as close as 5cm with its 35x super macro mode. Meanwhile, the ultrawide shooter is a 40 MP sensor and a 13mm equivalent focal length. The device includes a 13 MP front-facing camera.

In line with the AI trend, Huawei has incorporated AI photo cloud enhancement and features for deleting subjects from photos and retouching images. Other specifications include a quad-curved 6.8-inch LTPO OLED screen with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate, rated at 2,500 nits peak brightness. There’s an under-display fingerprint scanner, protected by the latest generation Kunlun glass.

Underneath, the Pura 70 Ultra runs on Huawei’s new Kirin 9010 chipset, equipped with an 8-core CPU – 1x 2.3 GHz + 3x 2.18 GHz + 4x 1.55 GHz. It’s speculated to be manufactured on a 7nm process similar to the Kirin 9000s inside the Mate 60 series.

Furthermore, the Pura 70 Ultra offers dual satellite connectivity with support for Beidou and Tiantong, enabling messages, images, and calls. It boasts an IP68 rating and packs a 5,200 mAh battery with 100W wired charging, 80W wireless charging, and 20W reverse charging. The device operates on HarmonyOS 4.2.

Available in Chanson green, Mocha brown, Starburst white, and Star black colors, the Pura 70 Ultra starts at CNY 9,999 ($1,380) for the 16/512GB variant and CNY 10,999 ($1,520) for the 16GB/1TB version. Pre-orders are currently open, with open sales expected to commence in China later this month. Huawei has not disclosed any plans for a global release at this time.
