With every Huawei phone launch, comes their even more premium line of Porsche Design smartphones. This year is no different, except with Singapore being the only Southeast Asian country to receive the new Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS. Although the price and availability is yet to be confirmed, let us check out what makes this Mate 20 Pro stand out from the mainstream-flagship Mate 20 Pro.
Sexy Leather Back
To differentiate itself from the already great Mate 20 Pro, it has to feature the design language of Porsche. First and foremost, it has a symmetrical genuine leather finish on its rear. This adds a premium feel to the flagship, while removing the need for cases as it has a great grip thanks to the handcrafted and seamless leather finish. Not to mention, it does not have any camera bump.
There is a red variant of the Mate 20 RS, which sports a red-colored leather instead of the black one above. However, this is only available in China.
A Step Above
In terms of specification differences, Huawei bumped the internal storage from 128GB to 256GB. Other than that, it still sports the same and new Kirin 980 that is powered by not one, but two NPUs. You can check out what’s so special about this new SoC here.
