As all Porsche Design devices go, the Mate RS has a stylish 8-edged 3D curved glass body. In case you're wondering what does RS stand for, it's a term used for the the world of Porsche motorsport for outstanding racing performance. To add on to that, the Mate RS shares pretty much the same tech-specs with the P20 Pro except for the display, memory storage and the insane dual fingerprint scanner for 'convenience'. As aforementioned, one is an in-screen and the other behind.
