Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has introduced the Mate S, the newest member of its Mate series with a pressure-sensitive display.
The 5.5-inch display features Force Touch technology that allows users to complete different actions by applying different pressure, allowing the screen to be used as an approximate scale.
The screen will be capable of distinguishing between a light tap and deep press, which will allow the phone to start new functions just by pressing harder, a feature that is expected to be the highlight of the upcoming iPhone 6s.
Huawei said that the fingerprint Sense 2.0 is faster, more sensitive, and is an upgraded version of the Huawei Mate 7’s advanced chip level security and single-tap unlock technology.
The Android powered phone will feature a 13MP rear camera with dual color-temp LED flash and an 8MP front camera with soft, front lights to improve selfies.
The phone has an arched back, and a curved surface, which will make it easier and more comfortable to hold.
Mate S will be available in 32GB version for €649 and a 64GB version costing €699.
Huawei Consumer BG CEO Richard Yu said: "The Huawei Mate S is based on insights we gathered about human interaction – most notably that touch is a natural action we take to understand and interact with our world.
"The Huawei Mate S redefines how we incorporate touch technology into our smartphones, taking a revolutionary approach to touch screen control and ushering in a new era for human-machine interaction."
