Doogee may be one of the lesser-known Chinese smartphone makers out there, but that may change this year. The company has been working closely with MediaTek, and the Doogee 2017 flagship will be a Helio X30-powered “superphone”.
At its booth at MWC 2017, the company showed off several of its current smartphones. But right in front of the booth is a bunting that reveals the specs of the yet-to-be-named 2017 flagship. Doogee says the device is being co-engineered with MediaTek, and in a surprising move, it has also revealed virtually all the specifications of the phone.
There are some really head-turning specs here, hitting all the right notes for an Android smartphone. In fact, these would not look out of place at all for a mid-range laptop. Here’s what the Doogee 2017 flagship will pack:
Helio X30, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, and a dual 16MP front camera setup are among the highlights here. The DTouch “front facing fingerprint” feature is also likely to be of interest, though we really hope it isn’t simply a front-facing fingerprint sensor.
Some companies have promised devices with outlandish hardware in the past, only for it to be vapourware. On the other hand, there are makers like OnePlus who successfully released a device with 6GB of RAM (and eventually fully utilise it). We certainly hope the Doogee 2017 flagship falls in the latter category.
