Huawei has unveiled its new Mate S with ground-breaking technology that delivers the best Android experience. The new Mate S will be available in selected countries including South Africa – the availability and pricing will be announced soon.
Key features of the new Huawei Mate S include a floating 2.5D screen, a pressure sensitive touch system and a new battery technology to give the users the maximum usages from a single charge.
Building on the revolutionary Huawei Mate 7 smartphone, the Mate S features a 5.5 inch 2.5D AMOLED screen that is 7.2 millimeters thick at the centre but with a width on the edges of just 2.65 millimeters. The arched back cover is designed to fit perfectly into the palm of a hand, making the phone less likely to be dropped.
Touch experience is at the heart of the new Huawei Mate S, creating an enhanced experience for users that simplifies their interaction with the device. When viewing photos, they can be quickly previewed and enlarged by pressing the screen with one finger, streamlining the operations of a traditional phone.
The phone is equipped with Fingerprint 2.0, an upgraded version of the advanced chip level security and one-key unlock technology pioneered in the Mate 7.
Fingerprint 2.0 halves recognition speeds, with more accurate self-learning functions. It can also be used to control the notification bar, erase unread notifications, preview pictures, and hold and take phone calls.
The Mate S is equipped with a camera that considers users’ needs in everyday life as well as professional camera setting.
The 13-megapixel rear camera features an advanced sensor with optical image stabilisation, dual color-temp LED flash lights, and independent image signal processor camera units, all of which combine to capture higher quality pictures faster.
The Mate S takes camera capabilities one-step further by offering an 8-megapixel front camera with soft, front lights to improve selfies.
