Huawei has released its Mate S device back in September 2015 and now is ready to launch the Mate S2 successor. Today we will compare these two mobile devices, but keep in mind that the specifications of the Mate S2 are currently just rumored and not confirmed.
Displays and Designs
If rumors prove to be right, the Huawei Mate S2 will sport the same display that’s currently found on the Huawei Mate S. In other words, the new mobile device will most likely come with an AMOLED display size of 5.5-inch that will support a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi. In terms of design, the Mate S is surely an eye catcher, as it has a premium build, featuring a metal uni-body with two thin lines at the top and bottom of its back. Below the rear camera is placed a square fingerprint scanner. The successor will most likely come with a similar design.
Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM
The Huawei Mate S features a HiSilicon Kirin 935 chipset, a quad-core CPU clocked at 2.2GHz and a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz, a Mali-T628 MP4 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. On the other hand, the Huawei Mate S2 is expected to come with a HiSilicon Kirin 960 chipset, an octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. Unfortunately, there are no rumors regarding the graphics card.
The Huawei Mate S has been released in three internal storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB which you can expand up to 256GB using a microSD card. It seems that Huawei has decided to keep the same storage specifications on the upcoming Mate S2.
The Huawei Mate S sports a primary camera of 13MP that features OIS, autofocus, dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, face detection, touch focus, HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 8MP. The Huawei Mate S2 comes with a better primary camera of 16MP that features autofocus, OIS, dual-LED flash, geo-tagging, panorama, HDR, face detection, touch focus and a secondary camera of 8MP.
The Huawei Mate S features a non-removable battery of 2700 mAh, while the Huawei Mate S2 is expected to be released with a more powerful non-removable battery of 3500 mAh.
