Huawei Makes The Mate S Official With A Full Metal Body, Nifty Fingerprint And Knuckle Sense 2.0 Features, And A 650 Euro Price Tag

At this year's IFA Huawei has taken the lid off its latest flagship phone, the Huawei Mate S.

It's easy to overlook Huawei. This latest device, like previous hardware, continues to look not unlike an HTC One without the logo. And despite sticking its toe in the US market, the Mate S isn't yet set to hit the US.

But in Asia, Huawei remains one of the most competent smartphone makers in the business. The Mate S builds upon last year's impressive Mate 7. It features a full metal body surrounding a 5.5-inch AMOLED 1080x1920 display. The sides, at only 2.65 millimeters, call out to bezel haters everywhere.

Gaming tablet. Those are two words I honestly didn't expect to say side-by-side about anything aside from SHIELD Tablet, but alas, here we are. It looks like Acer thought there should be something more in this market, because it just officially announced its Predator 8 gaming tablet. Sounds mean.

As the name suggests, this is an eight-inch device, which has a 1920x1200 display resolution. It also has four front-facing speakers and virtual surround sound, which Acer refers to as Predator Quadio. It's powered by an Intel Atom x7 processor, and runs Android 5.1 out of the box. On paper, it sounds like a pretty solid device.
