The Huawei Mate S was officially launched in Malaysia for RM2698 today and is available at all major distributors and resellers. While at first we felt like it was just another smartphone launch, you really have to take a closer look at the phone firsthand for the excitement to build. Featuring a gold and coral pink coloured metal body that is both curvy and light, we felt that the Mate S feels thinner and more premium than even the Huawei P8. The full tech specs and features for the Huawei Mate S include the following:
- 64-bit 2.2GHz octa-core Hisilicon Kirin 935 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 64GB storage
- 5.5-inch AMOLED display (FHD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4)
- 13MP rear camera (OIS, RGBW, dual-tone flash) + 8MP front camera (soft light)
- supports 4G LTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0,
- 149.8 x 75.3 x 7.2mm | 156g
- Android 5.1 + EMUI 3.12700 mAh battery (quick charge)

The Huawei Mate S made a splash at the IFA 2015 as the world's first smartphone to implement a pressure sensitive Force Touch like feature alongside various other high-end functions as well. While we did say that it was expected in September, the invites have already been sent out confirming that the Huawei Mate S will be coming to Malaysia on 27 October 2015.

Huawei have finally and officially announced their Huawei Mate S smartphone featuring a 2.65 thin (at its thinnest point) all high-grade aluminum chassis with a fingerprint sensor and a force touch equipped 5.5-inch display with 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and FHD resolution. According to Huawei, they've included a Fingerprint Sense 2.0 with the fingerprint sensor for faster recognition speed and control in a single touch on top of the Knuckle Sense Technology 2.0 for screen capturing introduced earlier. Explaining the Force Touch for the Mate S, one example is if you press harder on an image it will zoom closer, along with tapping the corners to launch an app. The Force Touch sensor is even sensitive enough to be used as a weighing scale so you can place an object on the screen and get its weight. Other tech specs and features include the 13MP 4-colour RGBW rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization introduced with the Huawei P8 but this time it has a sapphire glass layer for the lens. An 8MP front camera with soft lighting rounds things up along with a more sensitive microphone and a nano coating for water resistance. Unlike the Huawei P8 there is quick charging for the Mate S as 10 minutes will give 2 hours worth of talk time. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but it is expected to come in September 2015 and is priced from 649 British Pounds (RM4197) but we expect this price to drop accordingly.
