The Mate 7S will have a unique finger print sensor

Huawei first launched its first fingerprint sensor phone, the Ascend Mate 7 about a year ago.

Now the Chinese company has started hitting the headlines with its new device with a similar hardware but with different features.

The device in news is no other than the Ascend Mate 7S. It may also be known as the Ascend Mate S, as indicated by the rumors The event of IFA 2015 being held in Berlin is just one week away.

The devices will presumably be launched at the event. Huawei's VP Richard Yu has teased the new device on his official Weibo account.

He hinted that the new phone can be opened by different methods rather than simple fingerprint recognition. The news revolves around the fingerprint sensor which according to the teaser is a five-function fingerprint scanner.

This will surely make the device a unique one if compared with the devices with the same hardware but with a lesser functionality.

To guess the functionality of the fingerprint sensor, we can say that it would unlock the phone or mobile payments will be possible through it.

But beyond that there wouldn't be anything left to guess, but to wait for the announcement of the device on 2nd September.

Very little has been uncovered regarding the specs of the device. As indicated by rumors and leaks, The new Ascend Mate 7S will accompany a 5.7-inch screen with 1080p resolution.

It will have a unicorn 935 eight-core processor. On camera front it will have a 13MP Sony IMX 278 sensor camera. The phone will also have 3GB of RAM.

Another notable feature of the phone would be the gesture-based feature called "Incredible Touch."
