Online retailer highlights the feature before the official announcement.

The Huawei Mate S is expected to make an appearance in just a few days at IFA 2015. A new leak, however, has already revealed its standout feature: A Force Touch display.

The Force Touch technology as found on the Apple Watch can distinguish between strong and light taps on the screen for the software to respond appropriately. Chances are high that the technology will be applied on the upcoming iPhone 6S as well, though it appears that Huawei will beat Apple to the market with the first smartphone to utilize the feature.

The retailer leak also reveals some core specifications including a 5.7-inch FHD screen, octa-core HiSilicon Kirin SoC, 3 GB RAM, fingerprint scanner, and 20 MP and 8 MP rear and front cameras, respectively. The smartphone will make use of Huawei's Emotion UI 3.1 with Android 5.1 Lollipop at its core.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
