Huawei Launches the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate RS in Singapore

If you love to set yourself apart from other mobile phone users, and you wanted to have a dream phone with top features, you need to get the latest PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate RS. The phone was announced during the Global Launch in end-March in Paris.

At first look, you might not know how much technology Huawei has packed into this PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate RS (for now, I will call it Mate RS).

First, it has all that a premium phone should have. A big 6-inch (notch-less) screen, a powerful processor (KIRIN 970), latest Android OS (Android 8.1), big memory and capacity (6GB and 256GB respectively), good camera and water resistant.

Now, here are the best features of the Mate RS. It has a very big battery (4,000mAh) that based on my knowledge of Huawei phones, can last through the day with medium to heavy usage. It also has dual-SIM, Wireless quick charging (10W), Dual fingerprint sensors (one on the back and one in-screen fingerprint sensor) that are all packed into its small chassis.

Of course, it comes with the price (S$2,298) that most people will think twice about getting it. However, with its PORSCHE-inspired design and endorsement, this phone is a must-have for some people.

If you act fast, you can even get a free wireless quick charger worth S$298. All details in the Press Release. If you are interested in the technical part, check out the specs below (not full specs).
