OXFORD, England, Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Chinese technology giant Huawei unveiled their latest flagship smartphone on the 2nd September at IFA in Berlin. The Huawei Mate S is the perfect balance between beauty and usability and combines elegance with the next generation in interactivity. The gently curved case and glass screen contain several layers of functionality, including a P2i nano-coating to provide enhanced protection from water damage.
At the launch event, Richard Yu CEO of Huawei Technologies' Consumer Business Group, described the functionality as "full-time water resistant" and added that the new coating would reduce the damage caused by rain and sweat.
P2i is delighted to continue its partnership with Huawei – the company's nano-technology is already used on several products including the popular Huawei P8 Smartphone. Through the application of P2i's patented nano-coating technology, the Huawei Mate S will survive liquid exposure from humidity and sweat to accidental splashes and spills. The ultra-thin coating doesn't impact the look of the device, offering invisible protection from liquid damage. This means that the Huawei Mate S can be taken on life's every day adventures, and can survive more of what life throws at it.
P2i is the global leader in liquid repellent nano-coatings, helping companies around the world give their products improved protection against damaging elements such as water, oil, sweat and mud.
