It is a Dual SIM with 4G LTE smartphone, supporting 13 mainstream LTE frequencies covering Europe, Asia Pacific and America.
The device uses Fingerprint Sense 2.0, an upgraded version of the Huawei Mate 7’s advanced chip level security and single-tap unlock technology.
Users can now control notifications, scroll through photos, take selfies, answer phone calls and dismiss an alarm quickly by using the fingerprint sensor.
The 13 mega pixel rear camera on the device features a four-color RGBW imaging sensor, optical image stabilizer, dual color-temp LED flash lights, and independent image signal processor camera units, which combine to capture higher quality pictures.
The device also sports an 8MP front facing camera with soft, front lights to improve selfies.
Other features include Knuckle Sense 2.0, which allows user to switch between apps by drawing a shortcut letter on the screen. Users can also create and store their own personalized knuckle shortcuts for anything from WeChat to WhatsApp.
Huawei’s innovative Force Touch technology, available in select markets, perceives different levels of pressure on the screen – allowing the user to complete different actions – such as zooming in to a photo or launching an app – by applying increasing pressure. This technology also allows the screen to be used as an approximate scale.
