Huawei Mate7 ends password fatigue with single-touch fingerprint access, launches this November


No more passwords or lock codes for the Huawei Mate 7.

Huawei Technologies Philippines will launch on November 2014 the Mate7, the market’s first 6-inch smartphone with instant single-touch fingerprint access to put an end to password fatigue.

Its fingerprint sensor is the world’s fastest way to wake up your phone, at least 80% faster than devices that use a slower sweeping recognition option.

Convenient, but Secure

  • Located on the back of the handset, where the index finger rests when holding the phone, and measuring 9.16mm x 9.16mm, the reader supports up to five sets of different fingerprint records. These records can be allocated to normal and guest modes, so a user can switch modes to enhance protection when securing private folders, applications, or payment information.
  • The reader has a higher 508PPI ratio for enhanced reader accuracy so there’s no need to swipe repeatedly before being able to unlock the device – even with wet fingers or under light rain conditions.
  • ARM TrustZone also stores encrypted data of the fingerprint within the chipset for better protection by SecureOS, and prevents direct access by third-parties.

Launched at Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) 2014 in Berlin Germany, Huawei Mate7 is set to launch in the Philippines this November 2014.
