Consumers in the U.K. might have gotten the short end of the stick with the HTC One A9, which will cost a bit more over the pond, but at least they have access to Huawei’s new smartphone sooner than other markets such as the U.S. Carphone Warehouse is now accepting pre-orders for the Huawei Mate S, a smartphone introduced during the IFA trade show in Berlin earlier this fall.

The Mate S features a 5.5-inch 1080p display that, at first glance, might not seem very special. Except, like Apple’s Force Touch, you can dig deeper into the phone using a smart pressure-sensitive display that allows you to access additional functions by applying more pressure on the display.

For the spec heads, other features include Android 5.1, an octa-core Kirin 935 processor, a 13MP camera, a 2,700mAh battery, 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM and a microSD card slot for adding up to 128GB of additional space.

Carphone Warehouse has the device up for pre-order for £419.99 (~$649) SIM-free. Hit the source to grab yours now.
