Release Date: 12/06/2018
Chinese technology giant Huawei is back with its latest phone Huawei Mate S. Along with Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus, the Mate S is also creating interest among gadget lovers for its ubercool features. The Huawei Mate S release date in India is expected to be around May, 2017. Let’s go further into the details.
3GB RAM, 8MP front camera, Fingerprint sensor, Knuckle Sense technology
Non-removable, 2700 mAh battery, Android Lollipop
The Huawei Mate S is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 935 Octa-core processor with a 64-bit architecture. With 3GB RAM and 2.2GHz processor speed, the performance of the Huawei Mate S is exceptional. The Mali-T628 MP4 Graphics Processing Unit is a boon to the gaming lovers. The one downside of this processor is that it runs on Android v5.1 (Lollipop), which is a sure setback in the times of Android Nougat. But according to the sources, an OS upgrade is on the cards soon.
The Huawei Mate S comes with a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP front camera. The rear 13MP shooter comes with a dual-color LED Flash. The Mate S’ rear camera can take Ultra HD 4K resolution photos and Full HD @ 30fps video recording. Also, the main camera features Continuous Shooting, Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Digital Image Stabilization, Face detection, ISO Control, and Touch to focus. The 8MP selfie shooter comes with a LED flash and BSI (Back Illuminated) sensor.
The Huawei Mate S packs a non-removable Li-Polymer battery with the capacity of 2700 mAh. At this price range, the 2700 mAh battery is a huge turn-off! Mobiles like Gionee A1 Plus offer a huge 4100 mAh battery instead.
Design and Display:
Weighing around 156 grams, the Huawei Mate S comes with the dimensions 150x75.3x7.2mm. The 5.5-inch AMOLED display has a Full HD (1080x1920) resolution. The screen to body percentage of the phone is 73.76%. The pixel density of the capacitive multi-touch screen is 401 ppi.
The Huawei Mate S comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, which can be expandable up to 128GB. However, the expandable memory is an optional thing as the Mate S comes with Hybrid SIM slot (Nano+Nano).
The Huawei Mate S comes with a Mobile Weighing Machine, with which you can measure the weight of small scale objects. Also, another cool feature of the phone is Knuckle Sense technology. This helps you draw gestures and open desired apps with your knuckles. The additional features of Huawei Mate S include a rear-mounted Fingerprint sensor, an Accelerometer, a Proximity Sensor, a Compass, and a Gyro Sensor. The Huawei Mate S price in India is Rs 29999.
Considering the camera, huge RAM, best Fingerprint sensor and other cool features, the Huawei Mate S runs front in the race. But with only 2700 mAh battery and no Fast Charging technology, the run won’t long last. If you are strongly inclined towards this phone but concerned about the battery, a power bank will do the job. Or else, you can consider other phones at the same price range like OnePlus 3T or Moto X Force
