Today is the day when 512GB phones hit the tape

Lo and behold, a €2,095 phone should bring a little something to the table, right? Besides the unique 40 MP triple camera kit that is in the P20 Pro, Huawei's luxury Mate RS, from the Porsche Design series, has a version with 6GB RAM, and, surprise, 512 GB storage listed.

While we've seen phones with 6GB and even 8GB RAM, the expensive 512 GB flash memory chips that Samsung announced back in December haven't appeared in a phone. Until today. This amount of internal storage is most than a lot of thin and light laptops that ship with SSDs are able to muster, and you'd be hard-pressed to ask for more in a phone. 

Well, that same Mate RS costs as much as an expensive laptop, too, but we digress, as it is for the jet-setting crowd. What else is unique besides design and specs and memory amount? Well, the new PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate RS comes with two (yes, 2) fingerprint scanners - one built into the display for the front-loving crowd, and one on the back for the other camp. Is the 512GB model a harbinger of things to come? Probably, given that 4K 60fps video is getting a cameo in more and more flagships these days.
