As many of you already know, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro will be announced tomorrow, and as we’re waiting for the press conference to kick off, some new info regarding the Huawei Mate X just surfaced. According to the new info, the Huawei Mate X may be called the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design, and it may arrive with 512GB of storage, as a phone with such high internal storage got certified quite recently, by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC).
Now, this info is based on the latest report that surfaced, as it seems like Huawei created a new hashtag on Weibo (China’s social network), mentioning the ‘MateRS Porsche Design’ name. A report that surfaced claims that the Mate X will be called the MateRS Porsche Design, and it seems like the NEO-AL00 phone that got certified recently may be connected to all of that as well. The Huawei NEO-AL00 will sport 6GB of RAM and 512GB of native storage, while it will almost certainly be fueled by the Kirin 970 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is Huawei’s flagship processor. Now, if rumors are to be believed, the Huawei MateRS Porsche Design will be quite similar to the Mate 10 Pro when it comes to the design, though the phone will probably be at least somewhat different, considering that the Porsche Design Mate 10 Pro is already available out there, so there’s no point in releasing the same phone again, but with upgraded specs, though who knows.
If this info is true, the Huawei MateRS Porsche Design will be the first smartphone out there to sport 512GB of internal storage, though it is still unknown whether it will sport a microSD card expansion as well. The device will probably be made out of metal and glass, though we really do not have that much info at this point. Leica’s lenses will almost certainly be a part of the package as well, as that’s the case with every Huawei flagship in the last couple of years. The Huawei MateRS Porsche Design aka Mate X is expected to arrive some time this year, but the company still did not confirm anything. Having in mind that the P20 and P20 Pro will launch tomorrow, though, the MateRS Porsche Design will probably have to wait for the second half of the year to become official.
