Porsche Unveils Huawei Mate RS with 512GB Storage and In-Screen Fingerprint

Following with its latest Huawei P20 and P20 pro launch on Tuesday in Paris Huawei also launched the Porsche Design Mate RS smartphone. As some of its biggest highlights, the Mate RS sports Triple Camera Setup, similar to the P20 and P20 Pro, not only the three camera setups but the Porsche Design Mate RS has almost the same specifications as the P20 and P20 Pro but it does have some major design changes such as there is no ‘Notch’ on the front display and the center placement of the rear triple setup of cameras with the fingerprint sensor in line.

I think the most exciting feature of the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS is the in-display optical fingerprint reader.
