Chinese tech giant Huawei has launched the Porsche Design Mate RS smartphone at the same launch event where the P20 and P20 Pro flagships were unveiled. This time again the company continued its partnership with the luxury design house of Porsche just like it did on Huawei Mate 10.
The new Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS is identical to the Huawei P20 Pro in terms of specifications, but it comes with some major differences. The main difference is the removal of the notch display and the placement of the rear triple camera setup. Other major highlights of the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS are 512GB of inbuilt storage and an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS Camera features
Just like the Huawei P20 Pro, the highlight of the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS is its triple rear camera setup. It also bears an 8MP sensor with 3x optical zoom thanks to its Leica telephoto lens. The second one is a 40MP RGB sensor, while the third one is a 20MP monochrome sensor. Also, between the larger lenses, there is a laser transmitter and a Leica color temperature sensor.
The rear camera has a light sensitivity up to ISO 102400. The company also boasts the most powerful zoom on a smartphone. Apart from its 3xoptical zoom, the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS offers 5x lossless hybrid zoom and 10x digital zoom. Up front, it has a 24.8MP fixed focus camera with a f/2.0 aperture.
