Huawei will announce the new Huawei Mate S flagship at IFA Berlin next month. But sine the past couple of weeks, leaks about the Mate S have been pouring in like crazy. There have been multiple picture leaks and even GIC certification which confirmed the name a few days back. Now, the retailer OPPOMART has listed Huawei Mate S on its website revealing most of the specs of the device along with the pricing.
Huawei Mate S will reportedly feature a 5.7-inch full HD 1080p Force Touch Screen. It will really be an interesting feature as this tech allows users to define multiple gestures based on the force of touch on the screen. It opens up a lot of new possibilities which we would like to see explored on the Mate S. Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu has already hinted that the new flagship will have a powerful touch screen. So, its no surprise that OPPOMART lists Force Touch as one of its features.
Other specs include Kirin 935 octa-core processor, the same one that powers the Huawei P8 flagship, along with 3GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM and a rear placed 360 degrees fingerprint sensor. Huawei Ascent Mate 7 had one of the best fingerprint sensors of its time and we hope to see an improved version of the same on the Mate S. At the back, there’s a 20MP camera while up front, 8MP shooter. The listing also adds that the phone will support FDD-LTE networks and will come with a large 4100mAh battery. Remember ZUK Z1? Even it had such a large battery!
Overall, the specs look decent for a flagship. Of course, Kirin 935 isn’t considered as a top-end chip but its powerful enough to carry out your everyday tasks. As for the pricing, OPPOMART has listed the device for $599. This could be a slightly increased price tag, so expect the official price tag to be around $550-570.
So, what do you think about the Mate S? Would you be willing to pay $550 for a Huawei flagship with these specs?
