Huawei Mate S handled before its official IFA unveiling

Huawei Mate S 7We’re at the IFA grounds and waiting for today’s slew of events, but someone got up close and personal with the Huawei Mate S (which flip-flopped between that name and Mate 7S during its numerous leaks).

The Huawei Mate S is a follow-up to the Mate 7 with an all-metal body and a 5.7″ screen snuggled behind 2.5D glass (that is glass with smooth, chamfered and possibly curved sides). The LCD screen will have 1080p resolution and is said to feature Force Touch-like functionality.

The fingerprint sensor on the back was the focus of Huawei’s teaser campaign, with the tagline “5 powerful functions will fit in 1 square cm.” What the five functions are is a guessing game for now, but secure locking and mobile payments are practically a given.

The Mate S will run Android 5.1 Lollipop with EMUI 3.1 on top of a Kirin 935 chipset (same chipset as the Honor 7) with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, plus up to 128GB more from a microSD card. There will be two more card slots – two nanoSIMs – and Cat. 6 LTE connectivity.
