Force Touch to make its way to the Huawei MateS


Chinese mobile communications company, Huawei, teased that in a day, you’ll be able to “feel the force of every touch”. Alarms are going off on the Interwebs as Huawei’s continuation of premium metal-clad design and evolution of mobile technology are to include a purported big hardware upgrade on the Huawei MateS.

Apparently, the device’s screen will take a hit, shrinking it from the original Mate 7 (6-inch) to 5.7-inches, proving it to be a more one-handed friendly device. Based on leaks, we’ll likely see a better screen-to-body ratio that will help the aforementioned problem. Supposedly carrying a 1920 x 1080 resolution screen, this Huawei phablet is said to have the Kirin 935 processor on board, mated with 3GB of RAM.


The device has been rumoured to feature a 20-megapixel rear camera, most probably a Sony IMX 230 module, an 8-megapixel front facing camera and a fingerprint reader as well. Sounds to be an exciting product so far but we’ve kept the best for last – it’ll “likely” have Force Touch on its large 5.7-inch display. Innovation in the area, could see better interaction with our devices, and beating Apple to their own punch (as the iPhone 6s is also rumoured to have this technology on its Retina display).

Based on what we’re hearing so far about the MateS, it seems like the Honor 7 and the former share cues in the respective departments: processor, RAM, camera module and finger-print sensor.

IFA 2015, in Berlin will be the place to be if you want to know more about this phablet from Huawei. Though, their tweet seems to confirm that the MateS will have Force Touch, Apple still might have a head start, even though they’re set to announce a week later – seeing that they’ve dabbled in Force Touch technology before in their MacBooks and Apple Watches.
