Huawei's Porsche Design Mate RS takes in-display fingerprint readers "mainstream"

Huawei's Porsche Design Mate RS takes in-display fingerprint readers

The battery is the same 4000mAh one we saw in the Mate 10 Pro, so it should easily keep you going throughout the day.

Nearly like a new style of flagship, Huawei's Mate RS nearly gives a glimpse of what you can expect phones to be like in a few years, as the two companies join forces to roll out technology in one very special device. This new series comes with an all-new different design approach which is its key selling point. The high-end camera phone also features a color temperature sensor for better color reproduction.

That said, we're still waiting for some apps to get optimised for the phone's notch, as things still get hidden "behind" the gap. O2 has also confirmed plans to stock the Huawei P20 range and pre-orders will start from tomorrow (29 March).

With the Kirin 970 processor, the Huawei P20 Series automatically identifies more than 500 scenarios in 19 categories and selects photography modes and camera settings to deliver professional quality images.

Smartphone shoppers in Europe are soon to get their hands on these cut-price iPhone killers, but those of us stateside might be set to miss out. At the same time, Junior will be dual camera with modules 20 and 12 MP. The aperture of the lens varies from f/1.6 to f/2.0. There's also a face camera for unlocking in case you want more technology for that, and so you're kind of given a few options there. DxOMark gave a score of 102 for the Huawei P20 in their testings. The Huawei P20 runs on a 3,400mAh battery that provides up to 75 hours of continuous music playback.

The biggest and best among these two smartphones, the Huawei P20 Pro smashes up the market with their all new specs. The smartphone has a 6 GB RAM and a 128 GB internal storage space that can be extended with a microSD. The camera setup on the rear side of the device is enhanced with software features from Leica, a popular name when optics are concerned. There's a 24MP camera for taking selfies as well.

The P20 Pro is the larger and more advanced sibling in every aspect. Leaving that aside, we have the Bluetooth 4.2 out of the box here as well. The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate RS is the first Huawei smartphone to enable quick wireless charging.

Okay, Huawei took the lid off the much-anticipated Huawei P20/ P20 Pro and along with them came the Huawei FreedBuds among other accessories. You can pick up the Huawei P20 with 16GB of data for the price of 4GB on a Red Extra 16GB plan, which also includes unlimited texts and unlimited minutes for £35 per month (£9 upfront cost).

The Huawei P20 Series comes in Black, Midnight Blue and two all-new gradient colours, Twilight and Pink Gold, achieved by applying several layers of NCVM* optical coatings underneath the glass back, so light hitting the surface refracts and creates a vivid, yet gradual change of hue.
