Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design, characteristics, technical sheet and price.

After the announcement of the Mate 40 family, Huawei reserved the customary special edition in collaboration with Porsche. And expectations were met: the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design rises to the top of the catalog with a set of features that scare. The price of the phone is also scary.

It is not that the Huawei Mate 40 Pro and Pro + need to go up in characteristics since they have the most of the most, but that is not an excuse to raise the distinction one notch: the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design is that mobile that offers an extra charisma In exchange for risking design, raising the bar for features, and, something that often comes online, also betting on raising the price. With these premises we are witnessing the birth of a small jewel of technology, in every way.

The highest quality with a riskier design

The technical sheet of the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design leaves no room for doubt: almost completely shares the specifications of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro +. The base configuration is identical, also the camera hardware, the connectivity and even the power parameters. Although yes, the distinction of the Porsche model is evident in the packaging of the phone, its accessories and, especially, in the exterior design.

The mobile that concerns us offers 6.76-inch curved screen with 90 Hz refresh rate, fingerprint reader under the OLED panel, the use is high and maintains a wide cutout in the upper left corner to house the 13-megapixel front camera and the 3D facial recognition system. The differentiation in design is manifested especially in the rear photographic module: instead of being circular, as in the Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro and Pro +, the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design bets on an octagonal module.

In terms of cameras, the special edition includes a 50 megapixel main sensor, a wide angle with cinema lenses and a 20 megapixel sensor, the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design has a 3x telephoto lens with a 12 megapixel sensor and includes a 8 megapixel second telephoto with up to 10x periscope lens. Huawei ensures that the capture software manages to obtain sharp and clear photos even in very low light environments. And it offers XD Fusion HDR processing to obtain information from all sensors before creating the final image file.

Super fast charging, both with and without cable

The battery chosen by Huawei for its Mate 40 RS Porsche Design is 4,400 mAh, a capacity that should give a more than decent autonomy. And it excels in charging the device, both with the use of the cable and using a compatible charging base: up to 66 W via USB C and up to 50 W with wireless charging. In addition, the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design also includes reverse wireless charging to recharge other devices by placing them on the back of the phone.

The mobile starts with a complete set of connection capabilities in which 5G is not lacking. Thanks to the use of the new Kirin 9000, Porsche Special Edition supports next-generation mobile networks. And without losing sight of the WiFi 6, the infrared emitter, the Huawei Mate 40 RS Porsche Design offers a double stereo speaker, has NFC, is resistant to dust and water (IP68), adds Bluetooth 5.2 and also dual-band GPS.
