Huawei’s new Mate lineup is here and as is now the tradition it brings along a luxurious Porsche Design variant. Dubbed the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 30 RS, it mirrors the specs of the Mate 30 Pro 5G, which is to say a 6.53-inch OLED, Kirin 990 chip with embedded 5G, quad camera on the back and a 4,500mAh that’s fast-chargeable both wired and wirelessly.
The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 30 RS also comes in the styling we’ve come to associate with Porsche Design Huawei phones – a leather-bound rear panel with a vertical glass stripe that carries the quad camera. The color choice is narrowed down to Black or Red.
The two most impressive hardware features of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 30 RS are its Kirin 990 5G chipset and its quad camera.
The Kirin 990 5G is built on a 7nm+ EUV process and has a built-in 5G modem. The chip uses two high-powered Cortex-A76 running at up to 2.86GHz, another two Cortex-A76 at up to 2.36GHz and another four Cortex-A55, running at up to 1.95GHz, that will do for idling or low-level tasks. Users will also enjoy 12GB of RAM – 4GB more than the Mate 30 Pro.
The quad setup consists of the 40MP f/1.6 regular wide camera from the P30 Pro (with a large 1/1.7″ type sensor), a new 40MP f/1.8 ultrawide camera (also using a large 1/1.54″ type sensor), an 8MP f/2.4 3x telephoto camera and a 3D Time of Flight module for AR and blur effects for both photo and video.
Selfies are handled by a 32MP shooter that supports 1080p video. Next to it there’s a 3D camera that enables secure face unlock.
On the front there’s a 6.53-inch 1176x2400px OLED with extremely curved 88-degree sides. Huawei calls it the Horizon Display. The 4,500mAh battery supports 40W wired and 27W wireless charging.
Huawei is currently sidestepping giving detailed availability information on the Porsche Design Mate 30 RS, but confirmed it will cost €2,095 in its sole 12GB+512GB configuration, when it launches.
