Doogee have a history of making some really hardcore phones for those who lead a more active lifestyle and they ha e just released a new phone that is going to appeal to those after a alightly.orw affordable alternative. This is the new S68 Pro to give it it’s full name.
The phone itself is coming packed with some great features all wrapped up in a rough and tough exterior that will survive the worst that the world can throw at you. It has been Mil-Spec tested and can survive at temperatures that would make an Eskimo wince!
Inside the hardened exterior is a Helio P70 chip from Mediatek which is a mid range processor that is supported by an Artificial Intelligence Procession Unit (APU) to allow for onboard intelligence. Alongside this you will find 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB Samsung UFS2.0 ROM hard drive which is more than any for your daily driver needs.
Camera wise this new phone is packing a punch in the form of a triple camera setup from Sony. The stay comprises of a Sony 21 MP+8MP+8MP Al Triple rear camera, the DOOGEE S68 Pro features three essential camera lenses: Standard, Wide angle and Telephoto lens.
Whilst it may not be the all singing all dancing 48MP beasts that we have seen lately it promises to return some good quality images with a 130° wide-angle lens for those awesome panoramas that outdoorsy types like to get pics of. It also has a 3cm macro mode for those extreme closeups when you need to get up and close with nature.
Around the front is a 16MP front facing camera with an Artificial Intelligence algorithm allowing an 80° wide-angle shot along with the ever present beauty modes which can hopefully be turned off!
Up front the screen is a 5.9″ full HD display. With two layers of Gorilla Glass 4 to help against damage from dripss and falls. The actual panel has a resolution of 1080x 2280 and a 428PPI, giving a more the adequate screen real estate in which to work on.
There is also a below screen fingerprint reader which allows for fast and secure unlocking, this is paired with face unlock to give you two different options of securing your phone. It will also allow for your phone to be unlocked whilst you are wearing gloves quickly and easily.
The phone will launch with Android 9.0 to start with and will potentially be updated to Android 10 but this is an unknown at this time.
Powering this beast is something of a rarity in the smartphone world as it has a mahoosive 6800 mAh battery which will keep you going for hours when away from a socket. She you do need to charge it up you will be able to take advantage of 25 W fast charging to get you back out there sharpish, there is however no mention of QI wireless charging which is a shame. We do however have NFC for all your Google pay needs which is nice to see as this is sometimes a feature skipped on the Mediatek phones I have encountered.
I am looking forward to getting a chance to put this phone through it’s paces as my new job requires to me to be outside a lot at the moment so this may be a good fit for me.
