We know it must be confusing already but this post should clear things up. The device with model number NEO-AL00 which was initially referred to as the Mate X but was later said to be the MateRS Porsche Design is actually the Porsche Design Mate RS. But that isn’t all.
The Porsche Design Mate RS has a launch date already and it is March 27, same date as the launch of the Huawei P20 series.
You may be wondering if that means we are getting four phones on Tuesday – P20, P20 Pro, Porsche Design P20, and Porsche Design Mate RS. No, they are actually just three. It appears there is no phone called the Porsche Design P20. So that teaser for yesterday is actually for the Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS and not the Huawei Porsche Design P20.
According to GadgetMatch, Huawei representatives said the Mate RS is a different phone from the P20, P20 Pro, and Porsche Design Mate 10. That explains the image of the Huawei phone with three horizontal cameras and not vertically arranged cameras.
The cameras will probably be the same configuration as that of the Huawei P20 Pro but the selling point will be its rumored 512GB of storage. The reps are said to have kept a tight lip with respect to the specs, so we may still be in for a surprise.
Huawei has already put up promotional materials confirming the name of the phone at the event in Paris.
