Huawei Unveils the Mate S: A Flagship Smartphone that Revolutionizes Touch Technology

BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today in Berlin, the Huawei

Consumer Business Group
unveiled the Huawei Mate S smartphone, the

new flagship device in Huawei's Mate series of mobile products. Its

ergonomic design and innovative technology deliver a premium Android

experience that surpasses industry expectations once again.



"Our goal in designing the Huawei Mate S was to develop a smartphone

that offers a personalized experience, rather than a commoditized one,"

said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG. "The Huawei Mate S is based

on insights we gathered about human interaction - most notably that

touch is a natural action we take to understand and interact with our

world. The Huawei Mate S redefines how we incorporate touch technology

into our smartphones, taking a revolutionary approach to touch screen

control and ushering in a new era for human-machine interaction."

A new era of touch that redefines the user experience

With the Huawei Mate S, Huawei has re-imagined how people interact with

their devices, adding innovative touch features that enhance ease of

use, functionality and creativity. On the Mate S, every touch provides

an opportunity to do more.

7's advanced chip level security and single-tap unlock technology.

Fingerprint Sense 2.0 is faster, more sensitive and has more accurate

self-learning functions to improve recognition speeds by 100 percent.

However, in the Mate S, the fingerprint sensor does much more than

unlock the phone or secure payment applications. Users can now control

notifications, scroll through photos, take selfies, answer phone calls

and even dismiss an alarm quickly by simply using the fingerprint

sensor.

Knuckle Sense 2.0 advances the Knuckle Sense technology first

introduced in the Huawei P8, providing a host of new features and

functionality at the tap of a knuckle.

Quickly switch between apps by drawing a shortcut letter on the

screen - pre-programmed shortcuts include drawing a "c" to

activate the camera, "m" to listen to music or "e" to surf the

Internet.

Users can also create and store their own personalized knuckle

shortcuts for anything from WeChat to WhatsApp.

Freehand crop and copy an image out of any photo by outlining it

with a knuckle.

Double tap on a video with a knuckle to capture snippets of film

to easily share or save.

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.

But this is just the start; Huawei looks forward to bringing more new

and unique Force Touch applications to life.

Innovative design from inside out

The Huawei Mate S offers an unconventional design that strikes a balance

between the phone's brilliant capabilities and its stunning visual

appearance.

Building on the revolutionary Huawei Mate 7 smartphone, the Huawei

Mate S features a full metal shell, a 5.5 inch AMOLED FHD screen with

2.5D Gorilla Glass, and side edges that are just 2.65 millimeters. The

phone's arched back fits perfectly into the palm of a hand, while its

curved surface features solid pressure and weight, making the phone

easier and more comfortable to hold.

The curved back of the Huawei Mate S features nanometer injection

modeling to seamlessly connect the phone's matching-colored antenna

and metal shell, resulting in a smooth feel. Additional cutting-edge

technology, including diamond cutting, CNC carving, nanotechnology and

a sapphire lens are part of the phone's seamless metal body.

Professional photography with a camera designed for both beginners

and experts

The Huawei Mate S is equipped with a professional-grade camera that is

great for all shopping de ofertas levels of users, providing everyone with high specs,

including contrast, texture and distinctive tonality settings. The 13

mega pixel rear camera 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 Mate S takes camera capabilities one step further by offering an 8

mega pixel front camera with soft, front lights to improve selfies. This

ensures that users capture the clearest, most beautifying images

possible. The Mate S also comes with fingerprint sense technology,

allowing users to take a "natural selfie" by touching the sensor on the

back of the phone, an easier and more natural way to hold the device.

The professional camera mode allows manual adjustment for ISO, exposure

compensation, exposure time, white balance and focusing, and functions

such as the grid, and flash-assisted focusing. The black and white

filter mode was designed for artistic expression and automatically takes

classic photos that provide multiple levels of density and real-time

intensity adjustment.

Technology that adapts to every environment

Huawei also incorporates an extensive set of new conveniences in the

Huawei Mate S for users on the go:

The device brings regular recording functions to the next level with

smart recording, which uses directive reception technology. This new

hardware design operates three built-in microphones with a smart

directional algorithm to enable a clear recording with minimal

background noise. The microphones provide enhanced hardware support

for directive reception including: interview mode (180 recording),

meeting mode (all-direction recording), and regular mode.

The Huawei Mate S also supports wireless printing through the Mopria

general protocol. This alliance includes over 800 printer types across

16 leading brands, allowing users to print from anywhere.

Dual SIM or dual 4G LTE can be configured on the Huawei Mate S in

seconds, supporting 13 mainstream LTE frequencies covering Europe,

WhatsApp adds end-to-end encryption for all communications

The Facebook-owned app announced Tuesday that shopping das ofertas it has added full end-to-end encryption for all communications. That means all text messages, file transfers and voice calls are scrambled en route between users' phones so they can't be intercepted.

The news comes after the bitter public fight between the FBI and Apple over encryption. WhatsApp says its latest move makes it impossible for third parties -- including government agencies, criminals and the company itself -- to peek into users' conversations within the service.

"The desire to protect people's private communication is one of the core beliefs we have at WhatsApp, and for me, it's personal," said Jan Koum, one of the app's founders who was raised in Ukraine under Soviet rule.

"The fact that people couldn't speak freely is one of the reasons my family moved to the United States," he said in a statement.

WhatsApp started introducing end-to-end encryption in 2014, but it's taken until now to extend it to all communications across all devices. Users need to be using the latest version of the app to ensure they benefit from the measure, it said.

Amnesty International called WhatsApp's move a "huge victory" for free speech.

"Every day we see stories about sensitive records being improperly accessed or stolen. And if nothing is done, more of people's digital information and communication will be vulnerable to attack in the years to come," the WhatsApp statement said. "Fortunately, end-to-end encryption protects us from these vulnerabilities."

By bringing it to the entirety of its vast user base, WhatsApp has made the technology the most widely used cryptographic tool on the planet.

Encryption has become a hot-button issue around the globe. The feud between Apple and the FBI fueled a fierce debate over the tradeoff between individuals' privacy and the demands of law enforcement.

The U.S. Department of Justice asked the tech giant to unlock the iPhone of one of the terrorists involved in the San Bernardino shootings in December.

Apple refused the request and fought a court order ordering it to comply. The company said the demand would force it to create a "backdoor" that could potentially allow the government or hackers break into similar iPhones.

The FBI eventually dropped the case after it managed to get into the iPhone with the help of an unidentified third party. But Apple is opposing similar demands by U.S. federal law enforcement in at least a dozen other active cases.

WhatsApp filed an amicus brief in support of Apple's stance, as did several other major tech firms including Google.

The push to introduce end-to-end encryption has brought the app into conflict with law enforcement.

Brazilian authorities have demanded WhatsApp hand over IP addresses, customer information, geo-location data and messages related to an ongoing drug trafficking case.



WhatsApp says it has been cooperating, but is not able to provide "the full extent of the information law enforcement is looking for" because of the encryption it had already implemented.

A Brazilian judge ordered the service blocked countrywide in December after WhatsApp failed to respond to court orders. The ruling cut off all 100 million Brazilian WhatsApp users for 48 hours before a senior judge overturned it.

21 Outrageous Covers That Will Have Everyone Talking (PHOTOS)



A slew of accessories have been made for Apple's iPhone 5, which hit shelves last month, but with more than 5 million smartphones sold just three days after the release, a whole lot of users are in need of a case to protect their new device from wear and tear.

Mashable spoke with Michael Morgan, a senior analyst with ABI Research covering mobile devices, about the popularity of iPhone cases. About 75 percent of those who purchase an iPhone will also purchase a protective case, according to a study by ABI.

The average selling price for a case made by Apple is $18, and Apple is slated to sell 58 million iPhone 5 devices this year, according to Mashable. That means $783 million in revenue in iPhone 5 cases alone.

Apple has some quality cases, of course, but they're not the only option. (Besides, iPhone users might want to try a case that is a bit more outrageous this time around.) Companies like Griffin and Case-Mate offer some wild options, while Etsy crafters hold their own with some jaw-dropping designs.

Check out some of the most outrageous iPhone 5 cases in the slideshow below. And for the less daring among you, there's also our roundup of the best, least ostentatious iPhone 5 cases (here).

50% of teens feel addicted to their phones, poll says

A new poll that confirms just how much teens depend on their phones gives me even more to worry about.

"If your teens would prefer gaming indoors, alone, as opposed to going out to the movies, meeting friends for burgers or any of the other ways that teens build camaraderie, you may have a problem."

How many teens are truly addicted to their devices and the Internet? It is difficult to say. A 2011 review of 18 research studies found that Internet addiction might affect between zero and 26% of adolescents and college students in the United States, according to Common Sense Media. And, while Internet addiction is viewed as a public health threat in other parts of the world, it is not yet a recognized disorder in the United States. After reviewing all the existing research, Common Sense Media concludes that more study is needed to determine how real digital addiction is, and what the signs and consequences could be.

Whether it is an addiction or not, two-thirds of parents -- 66% -- feel their teens spend too much time on their mobile devices, and 52% of teens agree, according to the poll.

'Teenage zombies' consumed by phones

Nearly 80% of teens in the new survey said they checked their phones hourly, and 72% said they felt the need to shopping de ofertas immediately respond to texts and social networking messages. Thirty-six percent of parents said they argued with their child daily about device use, and 77% of parents feel their children get distracted by their devices and don't pay attention when they are together at least a few times per week.

Terry Greenwald, a father of three grown children, works as a custodian at a high school in Homer, Alaska, and said the hallways are often half-filled with "teenage zombies who are glued to their phones."

They often walk near the walls so they can move from class to class without looking away from their screens, he said. "It gets interesting when they get to the stairways and the walls end for the stairway," he said. "They don't want to look up and they don't way to tumble down the stairs but often just slow way down and inch along until they reach the wall just past the opening. They are often late to the next class, but that's OK because they were successful at not diverting attention from their phone."

Janis Elspas, founder of Mommy Blog Expert, believes the rules and boundaries parents set for their children when they get their first cell phone or smartphone might be helpful in heading off any addictions later on.

Her children, 18-year-old triplets and a 20-year-old, didn't own their first cell phones until they were at least a junior in high school and had a part-time job to pay for part or all of the monthly phone service. She also has a no-phone policy at the dinner table, which extends to her and her husband.

"This rule also applies to the kids' friends who might be sitting at the table with us," said Elspas of Los Angeles. "Sometimes they are shocked when I reprimand them for bringing their phone out and if there's a notification or it rings, I ask them to turn off their device."

Such a rule can prove to kids, firsthand, that they can "survive" without having to see or use their smartphone constantly, she added.

There are signs that some teens may be getting that message and realize too much time on their devices isn't necessarily a good thing. More than one-third of teens, 37%, said they very often or occasionally try to cut down the amount of time they spend on their devices, the Common Sense Media poll found.

Parents have a problem, too

Parents might complain about the amount of time their teens spend on their phones, but they admit they have their own difficulties when it comes to unplugging.

Twenty-seven percent of parents feel they are addicted to their mobile devices, while nearly the same number of teens, 28%, believe their parents are addicted, according to the poll.



Sixty-nine percent of parents check their devices at least hourly compared to the 78% of teens who say they do that, and nearly half, 48%, of parents feel they need to immediately respond to texts and social networking messages. More than half, 56%, of parents admit checking their mobile devices while driving and nearly the same number, 52%, very often or occasionally try to cut down the amount of time they spend on devices.

GG Benitez, a mother of three, said that as the founder and chief executive officer of her own public relations firm, she feels the pressure to always be available due to the fear of losing any potential press opportunities for her clients.

While she is often praised by her clients and her family and friends for her "immediate response" to texts, emails and social media posts, she said this constant need to be connected can be taxing. Yet, even when she tries to stay off her phone in the evenings for at least one hour, she has a tough time.

"I had taken my son to a movie, and he turned around to me and said, 'Are you serious, Mom? We are at the movies and you are still on your phone?'" said Benitez, who has a 10-year-old son and two daughters, ages 11 and 22.



Haiis, the digital detox expert, said one way to try to curb an addiction to digital devices is to resist endless hours of surfing the Internet. "We have constant access to new information and this is alluring, intriguing and exciting, but without setting limits for yourself, it's a slippery slope," she said.

She also said to limit posting on social media to three to five times a week, if possible, which will make you more specific about what you post and will lead to less time spent looking at other people's posts.

And, when you are at home and feel the urge to reach for your device, go outside, take a walk or exercise, she said. "The dopamine in our brains is stimulated by the unpredictability that social media, emails and texting provide," said Haiis. "It's a vicious cycle and in order to break that cycle, you need to find the same unpredictability and stimulation which is out there if you are exercising. You never know what's around the bend when out for a jog, bike ride or walk."

Benitez, the public relations executive who finds it hard to stay off her phone, said she has taken steps to curb her own digital addiction, such as setting aside the phone during mealtime.

"I have consciously made the decision to be more 'present' and will place the phone on silent and away from my vision, but not without the anxiety that I may be missing something important," she added.

She also hopes in the future to try to "shut down" at a decent hour when it comes to work, but isn't quite ready to take that step yet. For her friends and family who have become accustomed to her immediate responses, she has thought about sending them a text telling them that she is going to try to reduce her phone addiction and asking them to be understanding if she doesn't respond within her normal two seconds.

"I think," she said, "that by explaining to everyone around me why I may not be my 'usual self,' that it will lower my own anxiety of feeling the need to be so responsible."
