Huawei at IFA 2015 announced its flagship handset, dubbed the Mate S. The handset looks similar to its predecessor, the Mate 7, in aspect of design, with an all-metal ubibody construction.
The 5.5-inch giant screen phone has a 1.8M:1 contrast ratio, followed by 2.5D Gorilla Glass with curved edges. The display sets at 1080p full-HD.
Huawei’s Mate S makes use of Force Touch technology, meaning the handset can recognize how hard you press on the screen. That’s surprisingly before Apple, as Apple was expected to be the first vendor to bring Force Touch technology on phones.
The Mate S houses an octa-core Kirin 935 processor and a 3GB of RAM, powered by a 2,700mAh battery. For the standard variant, the company is offering 32GB of storage, while the Premium edition is being offered in 64GB storage. Additionally, a 128GB variant will be made available later this year.
Huawei has attached a 13-megapixel camera on the back with OIS, and an 8-megapixel camera on the front. The device also has a fingerprint reader on the back, which the company claims to be much faster than in previous models.
The Mate S will run Huawei’s EMIU 3.1, based up on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, offering a bunch of free customizations. It’ll be available in pink, grey, silver and gold color options.
