It's not been a year since Huawei has launched its first fingerprint sensor featuring smartphone - the Ascend Mate 7 and now the Chinese company has already started hitting the headlines with its news device with a similar hardware but with different features to offer.
The device which we are talking about is no other than the Ascend Mate 7S, at least that is what it has been called as so far. It might also be called the Ascend Mate S, according to the rumors.
Prior to the kicking off of the IFA 2015 being held in Berlin next week, where the device is probably being unveiled, the company or should I say Huawei's VP Richard Yu has already started teasing the new device. He hinted that the smartphone can be unlocked by other method(s) than just fingerprint recognition.
The news in fact revolves around the fingerprint sensor which many believe is a five-function fingerprint scanner. This will surely make the device a unique one if compared with the devices with the same hardware with a lesser functionality.
To guess the functionality of the device, one would definitely say it would unlock the phone, may be mobile payments, lock certain content but beyond that there wouldn't be anything left to guess, but to wait for the announcement of the device on 2nd September.
Although, not much has been said or revealed about the specs of the device, according to the rumors, the new Ascend Mate 7S will come with a 5.7-inch screen with 1080p resolution, unicorn 935 eight-core processor, 13MP Sony IMX 278 sensor camera, and 3GB RAM. Another highlighted feature of the phone would be the much teased gesture-based feature called "Incredible Touch."
