It seems strange to think that a car brand would design a cell phone, but it’s not completely unheard of. Brands like Hummer, Mercedes, Aston Martin, and Ferrari have all put out their own cell phones at one point, and Porsche has actually done it quite a few times, with their Porsche Design branch.
Now, that same branch is teaming up with Chinese telecommunications company Huawei for the Mate 10 series of phones that aims to combine the aesthetic of Porsche with the technological innovation of Huawei.
One of the things that makes the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 10 very special is the use of a dedicated built-in AI. Yeah… artificial intelligence for your phone. It’s not enough to emulate Skynet, but according to High Snobiety, it still packs a pretty punch.
The device is spectacularly beautiful, encased entirely in glass in a “diamond black” shade that is perfect for your LA-producer aesthetic.
The phone also packs one of the industry’s leading batteries with 4000mAh. Combine this with Huawei’s SuperCharge technology and that means a 20-minute charge will last you all day.
All of this power, design and fashion however does translate to the price – the phone will retail for around $1,650 USD and will be available in early December. Watch the video below for more.
