Huawei has announced its fourth Porsche Design phone, with the luxury brand having its own take on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

The first thing you'll notice about the Porsche Design handset is that it's finished with leather on the back. Not plastic that looks like leather, but actual artisan leather. That flanks the central glass panel in which you'll find the three cameras.

The arrangement of these cameras is the same as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, with a 40-megapixel main camera, 20-megapixel wide-angle camera and 8-megapixel zoom camera.

There was once a time that this sort of luxury phone would have ageing hardware, but not so in Huawei's Porsche Design Mate 20 RS.
