The Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS comes with a whopping price tag and top-of-the-line specs. Sporting 512GB of onboard storage, Huawei's Kirin 970 processor, an under display fingerprint scanner and triple rear cameras, is this worth its starting price of 1,695 euros (or $2,100, £1,500 or AU$2,700 converted)?
