With Apple all set to reveal a new iPhone in just about a week's time, Huawei has beat Cupertino to the punch on what's expected to be one of the handset's key features.

The Chinese company's new flagship Mate S handset features the already familiar Force Touch, an addition that senses different applied pressures to the display, increasing the functionality of touch-based applications.

Beyond that, we're looking at a 5.5-inch 1080p display housed beneath Gorilla Glass 4, a fingerprint sensor housed on the rear of the device as a lovely 2.65mm metal frame. The handset also features improved battery life and a curved rear.

It'll land in 30 countries, with pre-orders here in Europe starting September 15th.Â
