Smartphones with a cut-out on the screen are getting bigger, but designers at Porsche Design consider this a compromise. Working with Huawei on Mate RS , the company immediately decided that there would be no "bang" in the premium flagship.
Why is that?
According to the head of Porsche Design, Christian Schwamkrug (Christian Schwamkrug), when he first saw the cut, he "could hardly believe it". The new trend goes against their design philosophy and breaks the symmetry. The studio remains true to the principle of its founder Ferdinand Porsche: "If you analyze the function of an object, its form often becomes obvious." The image on the screen is usually square or rectangular, so the format of the frame is the right choice.
The lack of "monobrovi" is not the only difference between Mate RS and the more massive flagships of the company. In Huawei P20 and P20 Pro the module of the main camera is shifted to the edge, which in the compartment with the inscriptions in the horizontal orientation adds similarities to the camera. In the smartphone Porsche Design decided to adhere to the symmetry and placed all the elements in the center.
I did not manage everything
Christian Schwamkrug added that, ideally, they would like to get rid of camera protrusions and completely hide the module behind the mirror glass panel of the case. Perhaps in the next Porsche Design smartphone?
