New Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS Has Two Fingerprint Readers

Huawei P20, P20 Pro launch LIVE UPDATES: Expected price, specs, and features Huawei says three cameras are better than one with P20 Pro smartphone

Huawei's P20 series showcases bold new design features, including bezel-less, notched displays, and a triple-lens camera on the P20 Pro. Designed in collaboration with Leica, it sees the Porsche Design phone sprout not only a 40-megapixel RGB color sensor on the back, but a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with a 3x optical zoom.

The Huawei P20 builds on its predecessor's foundation with a Leica dual camera featuring a 12-megapixel sensor with a pixel size as high as 1.55 μm, and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, enhancing the HUAWEI P20's ability to capture photos in low-light settings.

On the front, you'll find a 24-megapixel selfie camera as well.

You probably won't ever see it in a United States store, but last night Huawei announced its newest flagship smartphone, the P20 Pro.

The new P20, and the larger, more feature-packed P20 Pro, launched at an event in Paris that indicated the Chinese company is looking to match rivals Apple and Samsung and elevate the third-largest smartphone manufacture's premium efforts. However, while the P20 Pro gets 128 GB of storage, the Porsche Design phone ups that to either 256 GB or 512 GB.

The Huawei P20 Pro is an impressive smartphone. Both the phones boot Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI out of the box. The phone packs 3400 mAh battery with support to Huawei SuperCharge.

Phone manufacturers shouldn't even try selling a phone with a notch combined with an LCD display.

I'd also be slightly anxious about battery life, since the similarly equipped Huawei Mate 10 didn't fare particularly well when I tested it against the OLED Huawei Mate 10 Pro past year.

On the front, meanwhile, there's a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect OLED display.

Another thing that differentiates the Huawei P20 from other Android phones, Huawei has kept the fingerprint sensor on the front, below the display.

The Huawei P20 Series' Kirin 970 processor and dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU) enable truly effortless photography. There's "Twilight", which flows between black and petrol blue, and "Pink Gold", which transitions between gold and pink. The SoC is mated to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of local storage.

Like last year's P10, the P20 is also a flagship smartphone.

The Huawei P20 is a smaller device between the two flagship smartphones launched today. That 40MP sensor is nearly twice as big as the one found on the Galaxy S9 if you do the math and it has come close to what we used to get from Nokia back in the day.

Whether all of this will make for a noticeably better camera remains to be seen, but the P20's camera certainly sounds more feature-packed, despite offering superficially similar specs. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS series won't go on sale in the United States at any point in the future. If you're someone who fancies some more hype, Huawei is also launching a Porsche Design Mate RS that should suffice your collector's instinct.

The Huawei P20 is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 970 system-on-chip which is the same as the Huawei Mate 10.
