With numerous leaks and rumors, it was pretty clear that Huawei was going to launch two new phones this month. But what got us surprised was the launch of a third phone as well, that is more advanced compared to the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. Alongside the two new Huawei flagship phones, the company also introduced a new luxury phone known as the Mate RS. Which is design by Huawei in collaboration with Porsche Design.
The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS offers one of the most unique and expensive design yet. In terms of specs there is not a lot of difference between the Huawei P20 Pro and the Mate RS. As the phone comes equipped with the same Kirin 970 inside, that is powered by a 4000mAh battery. Though what’s unique about the Huawei Mate RS is behind its fancy 6 inch curved OLED display. That sports a fingerprint reader inside, coupled with a back fingerprint reader as well. Meaning users can choose to unlock from the front and back.
Aside from that the Huawei Mate RS also support wireless charging and comes with PCM cooling technology. The phone will only be offered in two colors including red and black. While a 512GB variant will be available alongside the base 256GB variant.
The Huawei Mate RS also introduces a new feature to take a peek at your notifications. Where users can simply hover their finger on top of the reader to look at the notifications. Being a luxury device the Huawei Mate RS also doesn’t come cheap. The 256GB variant with 6GB of RAM would go for €1,695. While the higher 512GB variant with 8GB of RAM will set you back €2,095.
A dual finger print options might not surprise you all that much. But considering that manufacturers like Samsung and Apple are still working on it, Huawei sure has it all figured out.
