They believe in Huawei. The Pura 70 Ultra model is more expensive in the Czech Republic than the best Samsung and Xiaomi – SMARTmania.cz

--

  • Current flagship smartphones from Huawei are heading to the Czech market
  • According to DxOMark, the Huawei Pura 70 Ultra is the best camera phone today
  • The prices of all new products are relatively high, considering the weaker chipset, the absence of 5G support and the lack of Google services

Although the weight of American sanctions is falling on Huawei, the Chinese company is still very active and produces new devices – last week, for example, it launched the premium computer MateBook X Pro, the Watch Fit 3 and the new generation of the MatePad 11 tablet on the global market. The Huawei Pura 70 smartphones, which were introduced last month in China, did not find their way to the global market last week, however, today we know how their international availability will be.

Huawei decided to bring three of the four presented smartphones to the Czech Republic, namely the Pura 70, Pura 70 Ultra and Pura 70 Pro variants. They will be available only on the Huawei e-shop in several color and memory variants.

Huawei Pura 70 is headed to the Czech Republic

The smartphones of the Pura 70 series share several key aspects, especially the design, IP68 resistance and the Kirin 9010 chipset. The manufacturer does not brag about its specifications anywhere, according to the available information, it should contain 8 processor cores, but with lower clocks than is the standard nowadays. The chipset should also have artificial intelligence support – the manufacturer mentions the use of AI for gesture control and privacy protection display. Probably not enough for generative image editing.

The common denominator of the entire trio is the operating system. Unlike the Chinese variant, it is not HarmonyOS, but Android (AOSP) supplemented with the EMUI 14.2 superstructure. Unfortunately, it lacks support for applications and services from Google, and Huawei does not mention support for domestic frequencies of 5G networks anywhere in the specifications. These aspects reduce the competitiveness of these phones quite significantly.

Huawei 70 Pura Ultra: the best phone according to DxOMark

The highlight of the offer is the Huawei Pura 70 Ultra smartphone, which is currently warming up at the top of the DxOMark ranking of the best photomobiles. At Huawei, they weren’t afraid to experiment and put a special main 1″ in the phone with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a retractable lens that allows you to smoothly change the aperture in the f/1.6-4.0 range. The telephoto lens with 3.5x optical zoom, optical stabilization and f/2.1 aperture has the same resolution, and the wide-angle camera with a 40 Mpx resolution and f/2.2 aperture completes the photo equipment.

Photo processing is handled by the own Xmage engine, but XD Motion technology is also available, which helps with lightning-fast focusing of fast-moving objects. Sharp images of a car moving at a speed of over 300 km/h are supposed to be the proof.


The Huawei Pura 70 Ultra uses a 13MP wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/2.4 to take portrait pictures. It is embedded in a circular cutout of the display, which boasts breathtaking parameters – a 6.8″ diagonal, a resolution of 1260 × 2844 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz (1440 Hz PWM) and full coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut. The screen is covered by protective glass Kunlun Glass.

The back is made of vegan leather, the entire phone measures 162.2 x 75.1 x 8.4 mm and weighs 226 grams. The battery boasts a capacity of 5200 mAh and supports fast (100 watts) and wireless charging (80 watts). The phone can also share energy, both by cable and wirelessly.

Huawei Pura 70 Pro: the golden mean

The lower model looks practically the same as the Ultra variant, with which it shares the design, display, dimensions, chipset, water resistance and connectivity. The main difference occurred in the display and cameras, which are as follows for this model:

  • 50 Mpx main with optical stabilization and variable aperture f/1.4–f/4.0 (without mechanical extension)
  • 48 Mpx periscopic with optical stabilization, 3.5x zoom, f/2.1 aperture and macro mode
  • 12.5 Mpx wide-angle with f/2.2 aperture.

The photo equipment is rounded off by a 13MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.4. The battery boasts a capacity of 5050 mAh and supports fast (100 watts) and wireless (80 watts) charging.

Huawei Pura 70: the base with a smaller display

The family pedigree concludes with the basic Pura 70 model, which differs from its siblings in particular in its smaller display – the phone is equipped with a 6.6″ OLED display with a resolution of 1256 × 2760 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. There is a circular cut-out in the display for a 13MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and the triangular module on the back is home to the following cameras:

  • 50 Mpx main with optical stabilization and variable aperture f/1.4–f/4.0 (without mechanical extension)
  • 12 Mpx periscopic with 5x optical zoom, optical stabilization and f/3.4 aperture
  • 13 Mpx wide-angle with f/2.2 aperture.

Thanks to its smaller display, the Huawei Pura 70 is only 157.6mm tall, making it Huawei’s smallest flagship smartphone in three years. Even so, a battery with a capacity of 4900 mAh fit into the phone, while both 66-watt cable charging and 50-watt wireless charging are supported.

Prices and availability

The flagship Huawei Pura 70 Ultra will be sold on the Czech market in black, green and brown. There will be one configuration with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, for which the manufacturer will ask for 37,999 crowns. Although it is a decently equipped and good-looking phone, the price is very inflated – you can get, for example, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra or the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra for less, for which you will not have to deal with a weaker chipset, the absence of 5G network support or the lack of Google stores and services. With the new product from Huawei, you will get FreeBuds Pro 3 headphones for free at a price of 4,799, but even so, the price is very high. Availability of the Huawei Pura 70 Ultra is set for May 25.

The Huawei Pura 70 Pro will be available in white and black, the configuration with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage will cost 29,999 crowns, and in this case you will also receive FreeBuds Pro 3 headphones for free. The phone will be available on May 21.

The basic Huawei Pura 70 will arrive on our market in white and black, the only 12/512 GB memory variant will cost 23,999 crowns. The phone will be available from May 17, also with FreeBuds Pro 3 headphones for free.
