Huawei's Pura 70 Ultra: The Ultimate Camera Phone for Mobile Photography Enthusiasts

Huawei has quietly launched a new contender in the high-end smartphone market - the Pura 70 Ultra. This flagship phone positions itself as the ultimate camera phone, boasting a unique retractable lens system and a comprehensive feature set for photography enthusiasts.


A Retractable Lens for Superior Optics

The Pura 70 Ultra's most striking feature is its 50-megapixel primary camera with a retracting lens. Unlike traditional smartphone cameras that sit flush with the body, the Pura 70 Ultra's lens extends and retracts similar to a high-end compact camera. This innovative design allows for superior optics, potentially enabling features like larger sensors and improved zoom capabilities.

Versatile Quad-Camera System

The phone boasts a versatile quad-camera system. Alongside the retracting 50MP main sensor, the Pura 70 Ultra packs a 3.5x telephoto lens for capturing distant objects, an ultrawide sensor for expansive landscapes, and a front-facing ultrawide camera for capturing group selfies or vlogs.

Beyond the Cameras

While the cameras are the main attraction, the Pura 70 Ultra doesn't disappoint in other aspects. It sports a large, long-lasting battery with support for super-fast wired and wireless charging, ensuring you can capture all those special moments without worrying about running out of juice. The display is described as uber-bright and the phone itself is designed to be both stylish and durable. Huawei claims the phone has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, and utilizes a second-generation Kunlun glass screen for enhanced scratch resistance.

Pre-Orders and Availability

Huawei launched the Pura lineup in April, with the Pura 70 Ultra being the top-of-the-line model. Pre-orders for the phone began on May 2nd, with wider availability starting later in the month on May 22nd.

A Niche Filled?

The Pura 70 Ultra caters to a specific niche - mobile photography enthusiasts who prioritize exceptional camera quality. The retractable lens system and powerful quad-camera setup are likely to appeal to users who want smartphone photography to rival that of dedicated cameras. Whether this innovative design and focus on camera features translate into strong sales figures remains to be seen, but the Pura 70 Ultra is a significant player in the ongoing battle for smartphone camera supremacy.
