The series of affordable rugged smartphones from DOOGEE will go on sale in coming days on Aliexpress. I am talking about DOOGEE S61 and DOOGEE S61 Pro.
The new smartphones have very affordable prices of $109 and $129 respectively. The specs and features are very good for the price, such as 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage, 6-inch HD+ display, 48MP camera, Helio G35 chipset, and others.
However, I think that design is one of the main features of the new Doogee rugged phones. There is a carbon fiber, AG frost, wood grain and even transparent color options. I really like how a transparent model looks like.
So, let’s talk about other features of DOOGEE S61 and DOOGEE S61 Pro, as well as differences between these mobile devices.
As I already said, the new DOOGEE rugged phones look very nice.
They have four color options, but actually the color of smartphones is black, while you can choose a back panel from carbon fiber, AG frost, wood grain and transparent.
Another feature of DOOGEE S61 and S61 Pro is a removable back cover, so you can switch them. I hope the back covers will be sold separately.
As I already said, the new DOOGEE phones are waterproof, dustproof and shockproof by IP68, IP69K and military standards.
You know, the problem of most rugged phones is that they are very big and heavy. However, DOOGEE S61 and S61 Pro have 6-inch display, so the smartphones are pretty compact.
The screen resolution is HD+. There is also screen protection, Corning Gorilla Glass.
You should also know about side-mounted fingerprint reader, and USB Type-C port with OTG support.
So, for a little over $100, the new DOOGEE smartphones look very nice.
Talking about performance, I want to recall to you that these are budget phones, and they are powered by an entry-level chipset – Helio G35.
However, there are 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in DOOGEE S61, and 128GB of storage in DOOGEE S61 Pro. They also support microSD memory cards up to 512GB.
You know, DOOGEE S61 and S61 Pro seem to be the cheapest smartphones with 6GB of RAM.
I cannot tell you about gaming performance because the smartphones haven’t gone on sale yet. However, they will definitely not have problems with multitasking.
The camera is another feature of the new DOOGEE phones.
The Chinese company calls it a dual vertical camera ring setup, because there are two camera sensors located vertically on the rear panel.
The main sensor is above. DOOGEE S61 has 20MP main sensor, while the PRO version comes with 48MP main sensor.
The second sensor from the bottom is 20MP night vision camera. There are four powerful infrared emitters to take photos and videos in low light conditions.
You know, I cannot show you the real pictures again, because the smartphones haven’t gone on sale yet, but the company promises some useful features, such as Pro Mode, Time Lapse, Portrait, etc.
The batteries of the new DOOGEE phones have a capacity of 5180mAh.
By the way, I forgot to tell you about NFC support, and Android 12 operating system.
Price and Buy
You know, I have told you the prices of $109 and $129 for DOOGEE S61 and DOOGEE S61 Pro, but they will be only at the start of sales – from July 25th to July 29th.
The regular prices of the new DOOGEE phones are $179 and $199.
So, if you are interested in these smartphones, make sure you have time to order one.
