Dear readers, we have a new smartphone brand from Spain to be more widely used in the market: Doogee, and today, January 6, it has officially announced its new Android phone Doogee V. Most interestingly, it comes with iPhone X-ish cut, alongside in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Spanish brand’s state-of-the-art features were spotted by a Chinese investor in March 2013. Soon it was acquired by Shenzhen Kavid Communication Apparatus Co. Ltd. and is led by the Chinese company’s CEO Xin Chao. Familiar to football fans, especially La Liga followers would know that Doogee is the official sponsor for Villarreal C.F. since 2014, via which major deal signing began the expansive journey of the brand in global markets.
Now, Doogee is known for copying phone designs of leading brands, and the Apple iPhone X cut suggests the trend continuing. In 2016, the Spanish smartphone maker pioneered copying the Mi Mix series of mobiles after Xiaomi’s official launches. Well, that turned well as a few other brands followed the same but choosing Apple would be raising eyebrows and then lowering with wonder.
Firstly, the front design matches that of iPhone X. The 6.2-inch display that’s bezel-less along the sides is expected to offer an FHD+ resolution. In the first official video released by the company shows the device has an in-display fingerprint scanner and dual rear camera with flash and USB Type-C port at the bottom.
There are not much details on specs, price, and availability are known yet but are expected to be revealed at the CES next week. It is further expected that the likes of Oppo, Vivo and other smartphone manufacturers will follow Doogee in copying, again.
We are following the trail of developments to serve further update to you regarding the new Doogee V. In the meantime, let us know in comments below what you think it could be given the video.
