Huawei Mate 30 vs Mate 30 Pro vs RS Porsche Design: what are the differences?

Huawei Mate 30 vs Mate 30 Pro vs RS Porsche Design: what are the differences?

As planned, Huawei has just presented its new Mate 30 range with the Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro RS Porsche Design. What distinguishes these three devices? Are the differences minimal or are they obvious? You will find the answers in our preliminary comparative test.

As expected, Huawei has introduced three new models for the Mate 30, but the Chinese firm has still not clarified several details about where these will launch, and while the Huawei has indicated its willingness to market them by indicating European prices, the launch date is not known at all. It is likely that Huawei is trying to reassure resellers and try to find a solution for alternatives to Google services and applications.

Overall, the three smartphones are very similar but have some distinctions. Aesthetically, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are distinguished at the front by the size of their notches and displays. The notch of the Mate 30 Pro is notably larger because it houses more sensors to offers 3D facial recognition.

The screen is also smaller with a 6.53-inch curved OLED panel and a resolution of 2400 x 1176 pixels. The Mate 30 has a slightly larger (and flatter) OLED display of 6.62 inches and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, while the smartphones at the rear look similar to a circular module for the camera.

The differences between the Mate 30 Pro and the Porsche Design model are also visual. The back of the Mate 30 RS Porsche Design is divided into two parts: on the right and left we find leather, in the middle of the glass. The Porsche logo is also part of the deal.

  • 2095 Euros for the Porsche Logo ? It will sell here in South East Asia, for a while, as a novelty to show to friends

    The main difference is how much money you are willing to give to display to those around you with a cool phone. Which, after all, a "phone" also represents!...
