It seems like Huawei doesn’t want to launch a flagship without collaborating with Porsche for a limited edition smartphone. The company yesterday launched its flagship smartphones Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Huawei Mate 20X at an event in London.
The fourth smartphone that it launched was Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design. It comes with same set of specifications as Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but has an upgraded design. While the entire front panel is occupied by the display of the smartphone, the back panel sports all the aesthetic differences.
When you flip over the device to see its back panel, you will see a glass stripe races down the length of the smartphone with soft leather on both the sides. There are two colour options available if you wish to buy the Huawei Mate 20 Porsche Design. One is Black on Black variant and the other is a limited edition Red on Black model. It is worth noticing that the Red on Black model will only be available in China.
Another difference in the handset is its RAM and storage. While Huawei Mate 20 Pro mobile comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard, Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design has an 8MP RAM clubbed with 256GB internal storage or a massive 512GB of inbuilt storage.
However, you’ll have to pay a lot if you indeed are smitten enough by the design of the Android device to buy it. The 6GB RAM variant is priced at €1,695, and the 8GB RAM model can be picked up at €2,095. It is worth noticing that in Europe, the price of the 512GB storage version of iPhone XS Max starts at €1,649, which means that Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design exceeds it price by €50.
Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design features a 6.39-inch QHD+ curved OLED display, and has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The smartphone sports an indisplay fingerprint sensor and has IP68 rating, making it is water and dust resistant.
The leather clad smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup with 40MP+20MP+8MP sensors. The rear cameras come with LED flash and Super HDR. For selfies and video calls, the front panel of the smartphone houses a 24MP RGB camera that comes with 3D facial unlock and 3D live emoji with GIF and MP4 files. Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design houses a 4,200mAh battery.
