As part of the Huawei P20 announcement, Huawei had a something a little special to announce along with it. The Huawei Mate RS is the ultra-premium headset made in collaboration with Porsche Design.
Priced at an unfathomable €1,695 for 6GB RAM and 256GB or €2,095 for 6GB RAM and 512GB!
The Porsche Design Mate RS gets the same Leica-branded triple-lens camera as found on the P20 Pro, meaning a 40-megapixel RGB sensor, 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens.
This will be the second phone to the market with an in-display fingerprint sensor, which can be used to wake the screen up by hovering your finger above the display or can be used to unlock it by pressing on the screen. A secondary sensor is on the back which can also be used to unlock the Porsche Design Mate RS, or to access a “second, secure space”.
The phone is cooled by a world first for a smartphone using microcapsule Phase Change Materials (PCM) which is designed to keep the phone at a safe temperature.
On the front of the Mate RS is a 6-inch OLED 2K curved screen which ups the resolution from FHD+ found on the P20.
Just like the P20 Pro, you get a 4,000mAh battery and SuperCharge technology.
While the prices are absolutely insane for your average person, it will no doubt appeal to the ultra-rich, and demos technology we will see in mainstream phones in the next couple of years
