Huawei Mate S: Give in to the luxury of touch

MANILA, October 21, 2015 – As humans rely more and more on technology, personal interactions are becoming rare. Face-to-face conversations are replaced by technology-assisted ones, and life gets impersonal.

Touch is an important element in relationships and making connections. It is crucial in the way we are able to understand and interact with our world. This powerful element is incorporated in Huawei Mate S, the latest offering in the high-end Huawei Mate line.

“The Huawei Mate S is designed to capitalize on the power of touch which makes a personalized experience possible. This is developed on insights about human interaction where touch plays a vital role,” said Corinne Bacani, Senior Marketing Manager, Huawei Philippines.

The innovative touch features on the Huawei Mate S enhances ease of use, functionality and creativity. It features Fingerprint Sense 2.0 which is an upgraded version of the Huawei Mate 7’s advanced chip level security and single-tap unlock technology. Fingerprint Sense 2.0 is faster, more sensitive and has more accurate self-learning functions to improve recognition speeds by 100%.

Through this improved feature, you can do so much more than unlock the phone and secure payment applications, you can also control notifications, scroll through photos, take selfies, answer phone calls and even dismiss an alarm by simply tapping on the fingerprint sensor.

“The sensor’s fast response and its ergonomic design offers utmost smartphone navigation convenience,” Bacani said.

Another twist on touch is the smartphone’s Knuckle Sense 2.0, first introduced in the Huawei P8, which provides a host of new features and functionality at the tap or trace of a knuckle.

Through the feature, switching between apps can be done by drawing or tracing a shortcut letter on the screen. Pre-programmed shortcuts include drawing a ‘c’ to activate the camera, ‘m’ to listen to music, or ‘e’ to surf the internet. You can also create their own personalized knuckle shortcuts for anything from Album to Viber, WeChat or WhatsApp.

The Knuckle Sense 2.0 also makes freehand copying and cropping of an image out of a photo possible by just outlining the image with a knuckle. Saving favorite snippets from a video can be done by simply double tapping on a scene with a knuckle, and then share or save.

“The development of Knuckle Sense 2.0 is built upon how intuitive the action is. This is an example of how the Huawei Mate S effectively elevates and uses natural touch functions and blends it with excellent technology and craftsmanship,” Bacani said.

Not only is touch the basis for the smartphone’s functional features, it is also indulged upon with the smartphone’s craftsmanship. Featuring a gently sculpted back surface, the Huawei Mate S has a full metal shell, a 5.5-inch AMOLED FHD screen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass and sleek side edges at 2.65mm; its sensuous, smooth feel is attributed to nanometer injection modeling, dual diamond cutting, CNC carving, and a sapphire lens.

“We call the development of this phone ‘the craft of emotion’. Each geometric detail is crafted and refined to complement all aspects of the design. The result is a smartphone that looks and feels good, indulging our senses in fine details,” she said.

The Huawei Mate S comes equipped with outstanding technology such as the professional-grade camera, smart voice recording and wireless printing.

The camera (13-megapixel at the rear, 8-megapixel at the front) comes with high specs, including contrast, texture and distinctive tonality settings. The professional camera mode allows for manual adjustment of ISO, exposure compensation and time, white balance and focusing. It also features pro camera functions such as the grid and flash-assisted focusing.

Smart recording, meanwhile, uses directive reception technology, a new hardware design that operates three built-in microphones with a smart directional algorithm, enabling clear recording with minimal background noise. The microphones provide enhanced support for directive reception including interview mode (180-degree recording), meeting mode (all-direction recording) and regular mode.

The flagship phone also supports wireless printing through the Mopria general protocol. This alliance includes over 800 printer types across 16 leading brands, allowing users to print anywhere.
