Huawei has now officially launched the Mate 30 line, one of the most talked-about smartphones in the past couple of months and, along with the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro, the company also revealed its Porsche collaboration with the Mate 30 RS variant.
The phone has the same specs as the Mate 30 Pro 5G: it features a 6.53 inch OLED display with curved 88 degree sides and arrives with the Kirin 990 chipset under the hood, alongside with, of course, 5G capabilities.
The Kirin 990 is one of the highlights of the Mate 30 line: it is built on a 7nm+ EUV process with a built-in 5G modem and uses two high-powered Cortex-A76 running at up to 2.86GHz. Two additional Cortex-A76 run at up to 2.46GHz while an extra four Cortex-A55, run at up to 1.95GHz.
The quad camera setup is made out of a 40MP f/1.6 regular wide camera with a 1/1.7″ type sensor, a 40MP f/1.8 ultrawide camera, an 8MP f/2.4 3x telephoto camera and a 3D Time of Flight module for AR that can also deliver blur effects.
The 4,5oomAh battery has support for both 40W wired and 27W wireless charging.
In terms of design, the smartphone is exactly what you’d expect from a Porsche collaboration: the rear panel is wrapped in leather and a glass stripe that goes across all the way to the bottom of the device hosts the cameras. The phone is only available in Black or Red color options.
It’s unclear at the moment what the availability for the Mate 30 RS is is but we do know it will come with an eye-watering price tag of €2,095 (around $2,315, after conversion) for the sole configuration of 12GB + 512GB.
