Huawei’s claim to fame this year, besides the already-successful Honor 7 has been the Mate S which is regarded as the world’s first phone with a pressure-sensitive touchscreen.
The very phone is set to take on the Malaysian market next week, on 27th October, Tuesday. According to SoyaCincau, the Malaysian market may not see the top-end version of the Mate S, i.e., the one that features the much talked about ‘Force Touch’ technology.
The Mate S was first exhibited at the IFA this year. The powerful phone comes with Huawei’s in-house HiSilicon Kirin 935 SoC, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board (and expandable) storage. There’s a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p FHD display upfront along with an 8 mega-pixel camera (with soft flash), while a 13 mega-pixel f/2.0 camera with Optical Image Stabilisation makes it to the rear of the phone.
