Or so the leak says. But we tend to believe it because of the tipster’s track record.

(Update, October 23: And the series is official! Read Huawei Mate 40 series launched: Price, specs, top features.)

What you’re looking at is supposedly the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS, the most premium member of the Mate 40 series, which is set to be launched October 22.

What do you think?

This looks like the recent version teased by Huawei on Chinese social media platform Weibo. All the other teasers suggest a circular camera setup, but in the image below, the module is octagonal.

Huawei Mate 40 series phone teaser. Is this the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS?

The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS color variant leaked on Twitter seems like a combination of glossy black and frosted matte gray. At the center are lines that go from the top to the bottom and “Huawei” and “Porsche Design” branding.

And oh boy, do we like it. It looks grand and powerful. If it were a person, it would be someone you don’t want to mess around with, so you better behave. Heh.

Word has it that the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS is equipped with a temperature-measurement sensor, which will allow the smartphone to measure the temperature of living and non-living objects. The feature sounds like something that was introduced on the Honor Play 4 Pro.

This particular Mate 40 version’s price is pegged at around €2,000 — or roughly P114,034 in Philippine pesos and $2,343 in U.S. dollars.

There are three other models are expected to be launched on the 22nd besides the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 40 RS: the Huawei Mate 40, Mate 40 Pro, and Mate 40 Pro Plus. They’re expected to come with 5nm Kirin 9000 5G chip and industry-leading cameras and support fast file transfers and charging.

We’ll leave you with another Mate 40 series teaser. See you online October 22
