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.

Using a patented pulsed plasma process, P2i's technology coats products with an invisible protective coating 1/1000th the thickness of a human hair.
