Huawei Mate S launch: Kirin 935 chip, 3GB RAM and Force-touch screen

Lately, Huawei has just launched their new product known as Huawei Mate S. With this new machine, Huawei now has many screen sizes to offer consumers. If you need a 5.2-inch one, you can consider the flagship Huawei P8 or the mid-range Huawei Honor 7. If you want a phablet bigger than 6 inches, you may like Huawei P8 Max. And now, in case of looking for a common size like 5.5 inches, Huawei Mate S seems a good choice.

Huawei Mate S carries a high-end metal design like Huawei Mate 7 with a smaller FHD screen, 5.5 inches, plus Force Touch technology (which allows its 2.5D AMOLED panel to recognize a light tap and a hard press in order to respond appropriately) for selected markets. Moreover, the whole phone is powered by the newest chip of Huawei – Kirin 935, paired with 3GB RAM and a fingerprint sensor.


As for the camera, Huawei Mate S sports a 13MP rear shooter with OIS plus dual LED flash and an 8MP front snapper with LED flash also. Talking more specifically, we notice that there are also a full manual mode with ISO adjustments, exposure compensation, exposure time, etc. to help capture beautiful images.
