Yesterday, Huawei took the stage in Paris and didn’t just unveil the new flagship devices P20 and P20 Pro but also introduced the new luxury smartphone Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design, a powerful device you only wish you could buy.
The Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design gets almost the same specs as the P20 Pro but it is the first ever Android smartphone to offer 512GB of internal storage.
There are two variants of the device where one of them will also come with 256GB of internal storage which is still quite a lot of memory as compared to the maximum of 128GB offered in many other smartphones including Huawei’s own flagship devices.
Most Expensive Smartphone
Fallen in love with this device? Well, apparently most of us can only afford to gape at it on our computer’s screen or leave a gaping hole in our bank account.
The 256GB variant of Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design costs €1,695 while the 512GB variant will be available for €2,095
The insane price makes it one of the most expensive smartphones in the market, more pricey that than the Mate 10 Porsche Design which was released last year.
In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
Interestingly, the smartphone also features an in-display fingerprint sensor where a user can wake up the screen by hovering their finger above the display. The user can also press on the screen to unlock their smartphone.
The company has also included a secondary fingerprint sensor at the back of the device which can also unlock the Mate RS Porsche Design or the user can use it to access a “second secure space.”
Other Cool Features
Mate RS Porsche Design features a Galaxy S9-like curved OLED display with 6-inches screen and 2880 x 1440 pixels resolution. Thankfully, it doesn’t support a notch at the front of the device.
According to Huawei, it is the first smartphone ever to be equipped with microcapsule PCM which is an aerospace cooling technology for maintaining a safe temperature.
Mate RS Porsche Design also features the Dolby Atmos Cinematic 3D sound with dual SLS (super linear system) speakers for the high-quality sound experience and is the first Huawei smartphone with wireless charging.
Unsurprisingly, the smartphone doesn’t have a headphone jack or a MicroSD slot because who in their right mind will need more storage.
