Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS quick look

by John_A

We’re still working on our review of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but today we had the opportunity to try out the €1,695 Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS.

Internally, there’s not much different with the Porsche Design model. The baseline option is running 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but Huawei is also selling a 512GB storage option for €2,095. It’s still running the same Kirin 980 SoC you’ll find in the standard edition Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS review: Is it worth that premium?

Huawei is one of the few brands keeping the luxury phone trend alive. It doesn’t have diamond-encrusted notches or Vertu-level pricing, but the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS reaches well beyond its Huawei P20 stablemates …

The primary difference with this device is aesthetic. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 Pro has two strips of genuine cow leather on the back, surrounding a center strip of black glass. This glass also embeds the cubed camera array, and there is no camera bump like there is on the standard Mate 20 Pro. Near the center of the glass, you’ll find a Porsche Design logo, with the Huawei logo directly underneath.

You’ll also have access to a few special wallpapers exclusive to the device, with a couple of live wallpapers animating the Porsche stripes. We’ve gone ahead and stripped these wallpapers from the device and have them available for download here.

How do you feel about a company partnering with a car brand to boost brand value? We’ve seen other moves in the past from the likes of Oppo and Lamborghini, so it’s not like this move is completely unheard of.
