One of four Mate 20 models announced by Huawei at its special event last month is the Mate 20 RS Porsche Design, and this has the honor of being by far the most expensive of the bunch. We’ve already seen it go up for pre-order in the UK with an expected shipping date of November 16.
Today the company itself has unveiled the official release date for the smartphone in its home market of China. If you’ve saved up the cash, know that you’ll find the Mate 20 RS Porsche Design in stock in its online store on November 17 at 10:08 AM.
It’s priced at CNY 12,999, which roughly translates into $1,874 or 1,649. What you get for that amount of cash is the Porsche Design logo on the back, which is two thirds leather and one third glass.
It has a 6.39-inch 1440×3120 AMOLED touchscreen, the Kirin 980 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 256 or 512GB of storage (expandable via Nano Memory cards), and a 4,200 mAh battery. It runs Android 9 Pie underneath Huawei’s EMUI 9.0. On the back there’s a triple camera system with one 40 MP sensor, one 20 MP ultrawide lens, and an 8 MP telephoto lens.
