Huawei just pulled the wraps off the Mate S – a smaller alternative to the Ascdiscontinue Mate7 with a few nifty touches of its own.

The Huawei Mate S is built around a 5.5-inch AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display with FullHD resolution and “a classy screen color saturation of 105 percent”, which is not that gigantic of feat as most other mobile displays already surpass the RGB color gamut. A lot more tangible is the 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 that covers the display. Using a Force touch sensor the Mate S incorporates an improved version of the Knuckle control feature, which debuted on the P8, for recent and ingenious ways to control your smartphone. A fingerprint sensor on the back ticks another checkbox on the specsheet.

The device is powered by an in-houtilize Kirin 935 chipset with a dual quad-core processor, ticking at up to 2.2GHz. There is 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) on board and internal storage will be 32GB for the Standard version and 64GB for the Premium version. An even roomier 128GB variant will be announced later.

The primary capturing camera is one of the headline features. It uses a 13MP BSI sensor with an RGBW array for improved light-gathering capability, and is helped by the f/2.0 lens and a dual-LED flash. The capturing camera also comes with optical image stabilization, capable of correcting for up to 1.2 degrees of shake. The front element of the lens is made of Sapphire crystal for added protection.

Selfie enthusiasts are well covered too, as there’s an 8MP front capturing camera with an Light Emitting Diode (LED) soft light. The aperture is dimmer though, at f/2.4, and the focus is fixed.
