Revolutionary pressure control that redefines the user experience
Touch is a core of the Huawei Mate S, creating a new experience for users that enhances their interaction with the device. When viewing photos, they can be quickly previewed and enlarged by pressing the screen with one finger, streamlining the operations of a traditional phone. Earlier this month at IFA technology show in Berlin, Huawei revealed the new pressure-sensitive technology which can be used to weigh small objects. Huawei cleverly did this by placing an orange on the screen, with the Mate S revealing its weight of 280g.
The phone is equipped with Fingerprint 2.0, an upgraded version of the advanced chip level security and one-key unlock technology in the Huawei Mate 7. Fingerprint 2.0 improves recognition speeds by 100 percent, with more accurate self-learning functions. It can also be used to control the notification bar, double-click to erase unread notifications, slide to preview pictures, and hold and take phone calls. All of these options improve the one hand operation of the phone. Fingerprint 2.0 and Knuckle Control 2.0 – first introduced in the Huawei P8 – simplifies how users switch between app operations and take screenshots. The feature offers users a new way to interact with their phone: drawing a “C” with their knuckle activates a camera, while double-clicking the screen with a knuckle records the screen in the form of a video. With these options, every type of touch provides an opportunity to be innovative.
