Yesterday, Huawei officially unveiled its latest flagship lineup of devices with the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. However, the company didn’t just stop there, as the Porsche Design Mate RS was also unveiled to the world.
You may remember a rumor that stated that Huawei was working on an unknown device with 512GB of storage. Well, it turns out that the PD Mate RS is that device, as there is a storage option allowing for up to 512GB of onboard storage.
The PD Mate also features a 6-inch OLED display panel, while being powered by the latest Kirin 970 chipset and 6GB of RAM. There are two storage options, 256GB or 512GB, and Huawei has also included a 4,000mAH battery.
In addition to being the first smartphone to feature 512GB of storage, the PD Mate RS is the first in another category. Surprisingly, Huawei has packed a fingerprint scanner into the display of the device, along with featuring a more-standard rear-mounted scanner.
This is rather impressive, as it gives Huawei a leg up on the competition in multiple ways. The downside to the Porsche Design Mate RS is its pricing. The base model with 256GB storage is priced at €1,695 (~$2,109), while the 512GB model goes for €2095 (~$2,607).
