Earlier today, Huawei unveiled its new ultra-premium branding called Ultimate Design. And now, the brand has unveiled the first smartphone in this new lineup called the Huawei Mate 60 RS Ultimate Design.

Huawei Mate 60 RS Ultimate Edition launched

For years, Huawei and Porsche Design partnered on special edition Mate series phones and smartwatches but that partnership ended with the Mate 50 RS Porsche Design last year.

Specs-wise, Mate 60 RS Ultimate Edition is identical to the Mate 60 Pro+ featuring a 6.82-inch LTPO OLED, Kirin 9000s chipset, 48MP + 48MP + 40MP cameras and a 5,000 mAh battery.

There are notable visual changes though as the Mate 60 RS Ultimate features a ceramic back and an octagon-shaped camera island. You can choose between red and black colors with dual-tone finishes.
