Android is getting 'Force Touch' too on this one phone

The "Force Touch" feature was by far the coolest thing about the Apple Watch, and it's the one thing that everyone wanted in the next iPhone. It looks like we're going to get it, too.

But it looks like Android users won't be left out of the Force Touch loop anymore, once this cool smartphone hits shelves in the United States.

The  Huawei 5.5-inch Mate S is like a lot of other smartphones on the market. You can place calls, use the Internet, access your favorite apps and use it to navigate your way around town. With the Mate S, you get all of the conveniences of a regular smartphone and the intuitive Force Touch technology.

With Force Touch, you can apply varying amounts of pressure on certain parts of the phone to make different commands. Press hard? Open your call log. Press soft twice? Now your Facebook app is ready and waiting.

You can set this function up to take you to all types of places on your Mate S.

Apps are working to catch up to this type of technology, and now with two smartphones on the market with Force Touch capabilities, they're going to have to work even faster to meet up with consumer demand.

With a slightly curved, sleek metal design, powerful camera and internal processor, the Mate S seems like it will be a great smartphone. But we can't get it in the U.S. yet. In fact, there's no timeline announced by Huawei for a release on this side of the Atlantic.

We do know that the Mate S will be available for European pre-order as of September 15, so keep your fingers crossed that it will make its way over here soon.
