Huawei, in recent years has brought some amazing devices, which are well worth the penny they charge. The devices not only look and feel premium, they have the hardware to back it up. Such is the case with their latest device the Huawei Mate S.
The Mate S has an all aluminum uni-body and a 2.5D Gorilla Glass wrapped around its 5.5 inch 1080p AMOLED display. Though, we have devices in the market with 2K and now with 4K resolutions, the display on the Mate S is not at all bad. The Mate S is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 935 Octa- core processor, with a Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. All of this is accompanied by 3GB of RAM.
A finger print scanner is housed at the back of the device, which is said to work 100 times better than its predecessor, the Mate 7. Right about the finger print scanner is housed a 13 MP shooter with OIS and dual LED flash. The front camera is no slouch either , what you get is an 8 MP camera with LED flash. So, night time selfies, check!
The base model has 32GB of internal memory which can always be bumped up thanks to the microSD card slot available. Yaay! The other two models include a 64 GB and a 128GB. Though the most expensive of the lot does not only have its internal storage increased, Huawei has announced that the 128GB Mate S comes with a feature called “Force Touch”, something similar to Apple’s version of 3D Touch. The battery that powers this device is a non removable 2700 mAh, which is still debatable as how long it will last.
Huawei is also providing with the device a service called Huawei Care +. It is basically an accidental coverage service, which shall be available for Mate S customers, who damage their device. The base model Mate S starts at PKR 67,999 and is available for purchase right now.
