Huawei is using its stage time at IFA 2015 to announce its latest smartphone, the Mate S, clear shot at rivaling Apple's iPhone 6s Plus. First off, the device features a 5.5-inch display, down from the 6-inch Ascend Mate 7 from last year, but it's also touting Force Touch, the same pressure sensitive touchscreen technology that Apple debuted in the Apple Watch and Retina MacBook, and is a big part of this year's new iPhones.

The Android-powered Mate S has a metal unibody with a curved back and rounded edges, as is the standard design these days. It measures only 2.65mm thick, the 5.5-inch screen offers 1080p, and on the rear is a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization.

But where the Mate S really differs is with its use of Force Touch and "Knuckle Sense" technology, which allows the screen to recognize the difference between taps and presses with a finger tip and drags of a finger knuckle.
