Both device have 128GB of inbuilt storage.

The Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS is almost identical to the Huawei P20 Pro in terms of specifications, but it has some major design differences, with the most prominent being the removal of the notch on the display, and the centre placement of the rear triple setup - in line with the fingerprint sensor.

The phone packs in a 5.8-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a notch on the top. While the P20 Pro steals the show with its triple camera setup, the P20 settles for a dual camera. They are powered by Huawei's Kirin 970 octa-core processor which is a competitor of Snapdragon 835 not 845. The display is said to have a peak brightness of 770 nits, smaller bezels and the smaller "notch" design. The smartphone also packs two fingerprint scanners, one on the rear under the vertically stacked camera modules, and the second an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front. It also features an exclusive Leica color temperature sensor for better color reproduction.

One of those concepts that few phones have dabbled with beyond testing, this is a fingerprint sensor built into the screen, allowing you to touch it and unlocking the phone using only your friction ridges through the screen itself.

And their latest range looks to be no different, with the P20 Pro boasting three rear-facing cameras to help you shoot high quality pics at long range or in low-light situations. More specifically, it touts a Leica-developed camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. It comes with 6GB RAM and huge internal storage of 256GB and alternatively 512GB.

The Huawei P20 Series and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS are immediately available globally. Other than the two-tone colour (Huawei calls it Twilight) of the two devices announced yesterday, the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro, every other thing has pretty much been in the public domain and it's stuff we expected, anyway.

Another new addition is the massive 24MP front camera with the support of an F2 aperture lens.

The Mate RS is IP67 certified for dust and water resistance, and Huawei also states that theirs is the first phone using microcapsule PCM, an aerospace cooling technology.

The Huawei Share 2.0 feature has been launched for easy sharing between phones and even PCs (Windows and Mac). As the P20 Pro is aimed at photography enthusiasts it is very disappointing that it does not address one of the biggest problems photographers face - storage.

All the three phones are available now with a price tag of 649 euros for P20, P20 Pro cost 899 euros and Porsche Edition Mate RS 256GB version cost 1,695 euros and 512GB version cost 2,095 euros. It also supports wireless charging.
