After unveiling the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro Duo, the Chinese smartphone maker moved on to announce the luxurious Mate 30 RS Porsche Design – which only the lucky few could possibly afford.
The Mate 30 RS is essentially based on the Mate 30 Pro, except for it’s cosmetic differences on the exterior. Unlike the latter, the Mate 30 RS has a handcrafted premium leather finishing on it’s back panel, coupled with a vertical glass stripe which runs from the top to the bottom of the device.
However, the Mate 30 RS do not have the exquisite holo ring which circles around the quad-camera setup as seen on the Mate 30 Pro. Still, it has a quad-camera sensors which are arranged in a square fashion. There are two versions – Red and Black – available for the Mate 30 RS. To provide a more unique user experience, there are also Porsche-based custom wallpapers and icons pre-loaded in the phone.
Moving on to it’s internals, they are pretty much identical to the Mate 30 Pro, except it has received a huge bump to it’s memory compartment and utilizes the non-5G version of the Kirin 990 SoC. It is only available in one solid memory configuration with 12GB RAM and 512GB onboard storage, making it the best in class for the Mate 30 series.
Surely, bearing the Porsche Design logo at the back comes with a huge price. In Europe, the Mate 30 RS will has a astronomical price tag of €2,095 ($2,318), which is almost two times the price of the Mate 30 Pro.
