Doogee today made its latest smartphone official, and the X95 is very intriguing indeed. The price is obviously going to be its main selling point, so let’s get that out of the way first: $59.99/£50/56. No, that’s not a typo, that’s actually how much it costs, SIM-free and unlocked, and including the delivery fees.
So, with that price in mind, you may find it unexpected just how… modern it looks. It definitely fits in very well with any other device released in the past year or so.
The X95 can be yours in black, green and blue. It comes with a 6.52″ HD+ 19:9 LCD touchscreen with 600 nit maximum brightness and Gorilla Glass on top (the exact version isn’t mentioned), and it runs stock-ish Android 10 right out of the box. The rear camera system has a main 13 MP snapper, aided by a 2 MP depth sensor and a 2 MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom.
On the front, inside the waterdrop notch, there’s a 5 MP camera, with beautifying features. The phone is powered by the MediaTek MT6737 chipset, which has a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. You get just 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, which is sad but probably understandable given the price. There’s a dual card slot of the hybrid variety, so you can either use two SIMs or one SIM and one microSD.
The Doogee X95 has a 4,350 mAh battery with 10W wired charging. The body is plastic, but with a glass-like finish, and there’s no fingerprint sensor, but you do get unsecure face unlock through the front camera.
