If you follow Huawei’s smartphone launches, you must be familiar with the “RS Porsche Design” phones. Along with the regular Mate series smartphones, Huawei also launches the “RS Porsche Design” phone every year. The USP of these phones is the premium and unique design. Today, the Huawei Mate 60 RS Ultimate Design was launched in the Chinese market.

There is no longer the “Porsche Design” branding, so it is likely that Huawei’s partnership with “Porsche Design” no longer exists. If you don’t know, “Porsche Design” is a German product design studio. The “Ultimate Design” is Huawei’s premium branding that it will use on its premium and luxurious smartphones.

The Huawei Mate 60 RS Ultimate Design comes in Black and red colors. Both have a two-tone design on the back, where the upper portion is ceramic, whereas the bottom is metal. A huge octagon-shaped camera module on the rear has a triple camera setup. There are stereo speakers, an IR blaster on top, a USB Type C (3.1 Gen 1) port, and a SIM card tray on the bottom.

The phone is IP68 certified and weighs around 246g. The thickness is 8.1mm.
