Huawei is celebrating the 12th anniversary of the launch of the Ascend P1, the phone that started the photo-focused P series. For this reason, the new P70 series also got a nickname – Pura 70. In addition to the basic model, it also consists of a Pura 70 Pro, a Pro+ and the top model Pura 70 Ultra. They all share a triangular camera island and a new Kirin 9010 chipset from Huawei. Huawei does not officially comment on chipsets, but it is said to be an octa-core CPU with a single 2.3 GHz prime core, three 2.18 GHz cores and four 1.55 GHz efficiency cores.

Huawei Pura 70

The Huawei Pura 70 is just 157.6mm tall, making it the shortest non-foldable Huawei flagship in almost three years. It is based on a 6.6-inch LTPO OLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 2,760 x 1,256 pixels. There is a plate of Kunlun glass above it for protection. The smartphone comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB, 512GB or 1TB of storage. But there is no slot for a memory card.

The Pura 70’s camera setup retains two of the lenses from its predecessor, the Huawei P60. These are the ultra-wide-angle camera with 13 megapixels and aperture F/2.2 and the 12 megapixel 5x telephoto camera with aperture f/3.4. The main camera still has a variable aperture of f/1.4-f/4.0, but has been upgraded to a 50 megapixel sensor on the new model. Huawei has equipped the Pura 70 with a 4,900 mAh battery that supports 66-watt wired charging, 50-watt wireless charging, and 7.5-watt reverse wireless charging. The required Huawei SuperCharge adapter is included. The phone runs HarmonyOS 4.2.

The Huawei Pura 70 starts at CNY 5,499 (€710/$760) for the base 12/256GB version. But you can also invest CNY 6,999 (€905/$965) for the top version with 1 TB. There are four color options: Sakura Rose Red, Ice Crystal Blue, Snow White and Feather Sand Black. Pre-orders are already possible, sales begin on Monday, April 22nd.

Huawei Pura 70 Pro

The Huawei Pura 70 Pro and Pro+ are quite similar. The back is the first of the few differences, plus the Pro+ has 16GB of RAM while the regular Pro makes do with 12GB. Finally, the premium model supports satellite messaging and works with Beidou and Tiantong satellites. However, this feature will not be available on devices abroad. Everything else – display, cameras, battery – is identical on both.

The 6.8-inch LTPO OLED display delivers a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 2,844 x 1,260 pixels. The display is protected by a different type of Kunlun glass that is basalt hardened. This technology, patented by Huawei, can currently only be found in the Mate 60 RS. According to Huawei’s internal testing, durability should double compared to other Kunlun glass solutions.

The Huawei Pura 70 Pro and Pro+ have three main cameras. The main lens with 50 megapixels, aperture f/1.4-f/4.0 and OIS is identical to the Pura 70. The telephoto lens gets an upgrade to a 48 megapixel sensor and an f/2.1-3.5x Lens with OIS. A 12.5 megapixel ultra-wide angle completes the back. The Pro Duo has a Super Focus Macro function that can focus on objects that are at least 5 cm away from the camera.

The Huawei Pura 70 Pro+ features a woven check design and is available in three different color options. It’s still just a layer under the glass back, but looks different depending on the lighting. The Pura 70 Pro, on the other hand, has a simple panel. Below that is a 5,050 mAh battery with 100 watt wired, 80 watt wireless and 20 watt reverse wireless charging support. The operating system is again HarmonyOS 4.2.

The Huawei Pura 70 Pro launches in white, black and purple at a starting price of CNY 6,499 (€840/$900) for the 12/256GB option, while the most expensive version with 1TB of storage is CNY 7,999 (€1,030/$1,100 ) costs. The Pro+ comes in silver, white and black and costs CNY 7,999 for 16/512GB, while the dual storage costs CNY 8,999 (€1,165/$1,245).
