Huawei beats Apple to a Force Touch enabled smartphone
Huawei overnight announced the Mate S, a 5.5-inch Android smartphone featuring an Apple-like Force Touch display.
As with the Apple Watch, Huawei's Mate S can detect how hard a user is pushing down on the screen; Huawei says the screen is sensitive enough that it can be used to weigh small objects. From a more practical perspective, the pressure sensitive display can be used to zoom into photos – the harder a user pushes, the further in they'll zoom.
Only the high-end Mate S will feature a Force Touch display.
