Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS has raised the benchmark once again in smartphone achievements.
Its elegant design and extraordinary new features, such as the revolutionary matrix system camera comprising the world’s first Leica triple camera with ultra-wide-angle lens, a long-lasting battery and the trailblazing reverse charging feature.
High aesthetic standards
Channeling the legendary performance of the famous supercar through its symmetrical and vertical racing stripe motifs made of glass and all-natural leather, the smartphone’s soft and luscious hand-feel and its perfectly rounded edges make it a true showstopper piece, while also ensuring a firm, ergonomic grip and premium touch that assures complete control. The leather sides add a natural bespoke element to the design, symbolizing the consumer-centric ethos that is central to Porsche Design and Huawei. The iconic racecar design element Rennsport “RS” designation is incorporated and sits alongside the two-by-two Matrix System Camera, which has emerged as the signature feature of the Mate 20 series.
Unparalleled capturing capabilities
The world’s first Leica Wide Angle Lens is integrated in its Leica Triple Camera, enabling users to shoot wide, uninterrupted views, both horizontally and vertically. Large monuments such as the Pyramids, fields of flowers, skyscrapers or large groups of people can fit entirely into one single shot, without having to get cropped out. The Wide-Angle Lens also enables Macrophotography, which is close-up photography. With the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 20 RS, it is possible to shoot objects as close as 2.5cm and still get a crisp clear image quality. More innovative features are found in the camera, such as the AI Cinema mode, powered through advanced AI processing capabilities, enabling the users to make their videos look like blockbusters. It allows the easy adjustment of hue, saturation and brightness of footage and includes preset modes to embellish scenes tremendously, immortalizing the moments in all their glory. It also can identify and isolate the colors of a subject by desaturating everything else around, creating a dramatic and original effect.
Empowering battery life and extremely fast-charging
With a 4200mAh battery, users can go through a whole day of intensive usage without having to charge their battery, allowing them to work through most of their day without having to worry about running out of charge. The device also comes with a 40W HUAWEI Supercharge adapter, which as its name indicates, charges the battery at a very high speed. It can top up the battery to approximately 70% in only 30 minutes. Prioritizing users’ safety first, it is certified by TUV Germany – a German certification organization with some of the world’s strictest safety standards, making the process very safe by maintaining the device at a low temperature during charging.
Most innovative and secure identification
The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 20 RS takes users’ privacy very seriously and offers highly advanced and efficient features that leave no room for error.
