The Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design goes official as the ultimate premium experience

The Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design goes official as the ultimate premium experience
Just as expected, Huawei took to the stage earlier on today to announce the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. In a rather unexpected move, though, Huawei also took the opportunity to present its latest Porsche Design device dubbed the Huawei Mate 20 RS.

Clearly, it seems this smartphone has been designed with the Mate 20 Pro at its heart. After all, from the front, the two are essentially identical thanks to the same notched AMOLED display. However, as is typically the case with Porsche Design smartphones, some major changes have been made over on the rear. Namely, the popular design company has swapped out the Pro’s all-glass panel for a much more premium one that makes use of high-quality leather and a strip of glass down the middle. This black strip is home to the Huawei logo towards the bottom, the large Porsche Design badge in the center, and a triple-camera system up top that matches that of the Mate 20 Pro. On this offering, though, the camera bump has been removed entirely.

Just like the front design of this smartphone, the internals and features of the Mate 20 RS also resemble those of the Mate 20 Pro. However, the differentiating factor comes with the two possible storage configurations. As standard, the smartphone comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, but those wishing to spend a little extra can get their hands on 512GB instead.

Naturally, as this smartphone is designed in partnership with Porsche Design, the price tag isn’t exactly low. In actual fact, the base model costs a whopping €1,695 ($1960) in Europe. Those looking for the ultimate premium experience can, however, spend €2,095 ($2425) on the 512GB option.

Regarding the availability, Huawei will be selling its latest premium option in both Black and Red. It’s unclear if there will be a pre-order period, but the company did confirm that shipments would begin November 16.

You are wrong .. Luxury phones make more sense than luxury cars .. Luxury super cars will do 0-60 in 3 seconds . Yet you can't do over 35mph in major US cities (wasting tons of power) $2000 luxury phone can still be justified because the owner would spend more time with it than even his spouse/partner It's true that it's expensive but some people don't Care.. Some people love standing out .. Someday when you are super rich you'd want to stand out too

well a luxury super car can last for years if taken care of, in 3 years the mate 20 rs will be outdated and forgotten and end up in a drawer collecting dust. also just because there are speed limits in cities doesn't mean you have to absolutely follow them. not everyone who owns a supercar is using it to commute to work, they go to race tracks and drag strips.

Cars are meant to last forever .. Not only luxury car exclusive . It's the nature of cellphones to get outdated in a year or two .

And thats why phones are not 70,000 dollars in the first place. It's okay to change them after a couple of years for what they're worth ultimately. I'd rather do that than spend 80,000 for a car I'll change in 5 years time still

I want a phone that costs as much as a mobile home. Lol. Do they have financing for 180 months? Get out of here.
