Huawei Mate S certified by GCF; handset is expected to be unveiled on September 2nd at IFA

Huawei Mate S certified by GCF; handset is expected to be unveiled on September 2nd at IFA
Recently, we showed you a teaser for a device that was called the Huawei Mate 7S. Today, the same phone, called the Huawei Mate S, was certified by the GCF. That means that the odds favor the handset coming to market with that name. We should see the Mate S unveiled on September 2nd at the IFA show in Berlin.

Huawei had posted a couple of teasers about the device (when it was called the Huawei Mate 7S) with the slogan "The power of touch." And while that could be a hint that the device will offer Force Touch, a tweet from Evan Blass (of @evleaks fame) hinted that the feature was pulled from the phone by the manufacturer.

Based on an AnTuTu benchmark test, the Huawei Mate S (model number SUR-TL00) is expected to feature a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The Kirin 935 chipset is under the hood, with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 20MP rear camera is on the back, while a front-facing 8MP snapper adorns the front of the unit. Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

As we get closer to September 2nd, we should more details about the Mate S. Feel free to check in often for the latest leaks, rumors and speculation on the Huawei Mate S.

Thanks for the tip!
