The Huawei Mate S smartphone is now available in New Zealand exclusively through Huawei's retail partner Noel Leeming. The Mate S is the new flagship device in Huawei’s Mate series, with cutting-edge design and innovative technology which delivers a premium Android experience.
“Our goal in designing the Huawei Mate S was to develop a smartphone that offers a personalized experience, rather than a commoditized one,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG. “The Huawei Mate S is based on insights we gathered about human interaction – most notably that touch is a natural action we take to understand and interact with our world. The Huawei Mate S redefines how we incorporate touch technology into our smartphones, taking a revolutionary approach to touch screen control and ushering in a new era for human-machine interaction.”
The Huawei Mate S offers an unconventional design that builds on the Huawei Mate 7 smartphone, featuring a full metal shell, a 5.5 inch AMOLED FHD screen with 2.5D Gorilla Glass, and side edges that are just 2.65 millimeters. The phone’s arched back fits into the palm of a hand, while its curved surface features solid pressure and weight, making the phone easier and more comfortable to hold. The curved back of the Huawei Mate S features nanometer injection modeling to seamlessly connect the phone’s matching-colored antenna and metal shell, resulting in a smooth feel. Additional cutting-edge technology, including diamond cutting, CNC carving, nanotechnology and a sapphire lens are part of the phone’s seamless metal body.
With the Huawei Mate S, Huawei has re-imagined how people interact with their devices, adding innovative touch features that enhance ease of use, functionality and creativity. On the Mate S, every touch provides an opportunity to do more.
The Huawei Mate S is equipped with a professional-grade camera that is great for all levels of user, providing everyone with high specs, including contrast, texture and distinctive tonality settings. The 13 megapixel rear camera features a four-color RGBW imaging sensor, optical image stabilizer, dual color- temp LED flash lights, and independent image signal processor camera units, which combine to capture higher quality pictures.
The Mate S also comes with fingerprint sense technology, allowing users to take a “natural selfie” by touching the sensor on the back of the phone.
The professional camera mode allows manual adjustment for ISO, exposure compensation, exposure time, white balance and focusing, and functions such as the grid, and flash-assisted focusing.
The Mate S is available now exclusively through Noel Leeming, available in gold colour, with 64GB storage and a suggested retail price of $1349.
