Earlier rumors have suggested that the Huawei P70 series smartphones would be unveiled in March. However, according to sources cited by IJIWEI, the P70 series is expected to be delayed until April. It is anticipated to include three models: the P70, P70 Pro, and P70 Art.

Based on information from Weibo and X-platform sources cited in IJIWEI’s report, the Huawei P70 series is expected to feature high-density lithium batteries, wireless charging, and satellite communication technology across all models. In terms of imaging, the series is expected to be equipped with periscope telephoto lenses and a 50MP main camera. The main camera’s CIS is expected to be either the Sony IMX989 or OV50H. The display is expected to have a 1.5K resolution and support LTPO technology.

The Huawei P series smartphones are known for their imaging capabilities. Leaks cited by the report suggest that the P70 will feature a 2.5D curved screen and BeiDou Navigation Satellite System. The model, expected to be the P70 Art, is rumored to adopt the IMX989 one-inch main camera sensor with support for a physically variable aperture.

The P70 Art will also include a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and an upgraded 4X periscope telephoto module, as per the report. Additionally, the dual-directional satellite communication technology of this phone is expected to see upgrades.

Regarding the processors of the Huawei P70 series, reports suggest that they will adopt the same model as the Mate 60 series, although the flagship variant of the P70 may have a different processor frequency compared to the standard version.

The Huawei P70 series is expected to bring many highlights in terms of configuration, design, imaging performance, and more. However, specific details such as the release date and parameter information will require further confirmation from Huawei officials.

Previously, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from Tianfeng International Securities indicated in a report that Huawei is expected to launch a new flagship series, the P70, in the first half of 2024. Benefiting from upgraded camera specifications and the adoption of the in-house designed Kirin chip, the shipment volume of the models under Huawei’s P70 series is expected to see significant growth in 2024 compared to the 4–5 million units of the models under the P60 series in 2023.
