On Monday of this week, Huawei announced the upgrade of the P series to Pura, with the first model being the Huawei Pura 70 launched today. According to the Huawei Mall, the new generation Pura70 has four versions in total.

Two of them, Pura70 Ultra and Pura70 Pro, were immediately available for sale but were quickly sold out; Pura70 Pro+ and Pura70 are expected to go on sale on April 22nd at 10:08 a.m.

From the official promotional video, it can be seen that the Huawei Pura70 series adopts a brand-new triangular-shaped main camera module design, positioned as the annual flagship benchmark for imaging, bringing not only a new exterior design but also Huawei’s highest-end imaging system.

Since Huawei did not hold a press conference specifically to introduce this product, we are unable to know the technical details. From the video, it can be seen that the Ultra model contains a huge main camera, labeled in promotional materials as the “Super Zoom Telescopic Camera”.

The parameters of the Pura 70 Ultra main camera are: a 50-megapixel Super Zoom Telescopic Camera + a 40-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera + a 50-megapixel Super Zoom Micro-Macro camera, with the zoom range of the telescopic camera reaching up to 200 times.

Previously, it was reported online that the rear main camera of the Pura 70 Ultra supports mechanical vertical telescoping, partially solving the problem of the lens module being too thick due to the 1-inch large sensor.

Huawei describes it as a “rotating telescopic lens structure” and also comes with exclusive mechanical sounds, while this does not affect the IP68-level waterproof and dustproof rating of the whole machine. Some people have already experienced the actual machine in Huawei experience stores:

Official information shows that the dimensions of the Huawei Pura 70 Ultra are 162.6mm in length, 75.1mm in width, and 8.4mm in thickness, weighing 226 grams.

From the Mate series’ satellite communication to the telescopic camera brought by Pura70, Huawei’s introduction of new technologies to mobile phones seems to once again lead the industry.

Huawei did not actively introduce the chip used in the Pura70 series phones, but similarly, some people have seen the model through benchmark software in physical stores. This is a name that has not been seen before: Kirin 9010, covering the entire lineup. It has 12 CPU cores (possibly the number after hyper-threading), and the GPU still uses the Mali-G910.

It seems that the large core frequency of Kirin 9010 is lower, while the frequency of medium and small cores has increased. It will be about 10% more powerful than the Kirin 9000S on the Mate 60 series (the score increase on Antutu is even greater, up to 20%).

In a public letter to users, Huawei stated that Pura70 will continue to adhere to the path pursued by the previous P series in pursuit of imaging capabilities, while also stating that the new phone is equipped with the upgraded HarmonyOS 4.2 version, and also provides dual-satellite communication capabilities of BeiDou satellite imagery + TianTong satellite communication.

Of course, with the evolution of generative AI technology, Pura70 has also integrated the Pangu large model, bringing intelligent applications such as AI intelligent noise reduction, cloud enhancement, AI summaries, and intelligent assistants that will appear on this generation of flagship phones.

Comparing with the Mate 60 series unveiled in August last year, the prices of various versions of the Pura70 series, including regular, large, and ultra-large versions, remain the same. The newly introduced Ultra version is priced between the extraordinary master and the ultra-large versions.

Lastly, it is worth mentioning that the pink-purple color offered by Pura70 has attracted special attention.

Will this color become a trendy item?

Recently, market research firm BCI released data on the domestic smartphone market in the first quarter of 2024. In terms of activation volume, Huawei ranks second with a market share of 15.5%, with activation volume reaching
