Baku, September 2, AZERTAC
China`s Huawei Technologies has today unveiled a new smartphone, taking aim at the high end of the market, which is dominated by Apple and Samsung Electronics, according to Reuters.
The Mate S, launched on the sidelines of Europe`s biggest consumer electronics show, IFA, in Berlin, has a 5.5-inch display, a 13 mega pixel rear camera and fingerprint security. Huawei says it is one of the first smartphones to include a Force Touch display, which can distinguish between a light tap and deep press, enabling access to more functions just by pressing harder.
Huawei became the world`s third-biggest smartphone company by sales last month, according to research firm Gartner, overtaking Chinese rival Lenovo, and aims to become the first Chinese firm to sell more than 100 million smartphones this year.
Its Mate S will be available in more than 30 countries.
