In recent months, the war on the bezel has reached new peaks and many smartphones with a nearly all-screen front have popped up — from the Xiaomi Mi Mix
to the Samsung Galaxy S8
and LG G6
. What do these have in common, besides thinning out the frame around their screens? They are quite expensive...
Enter the Doogee MIX — a potent all-screen midranger with a price-tag almost as slim as its bezels. The MIX sports only a lower bezel where its home button and selfie camera are positioned, while a tiny strip over the top of the display holds an earpiece. The AMOLED screen has a sizable 5.5-inch diagonal and a 720 x 1280 pixel
resolution, which should be enough to deliver decent sharpness and clarity, especially when the MIX's tempting price is considered – more on that below.
Under the hood, we have the new octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 chipset, with four speedy A53
cores running at 2.5 GHz, and another four A53 cores, which are designed to be more power-efficient, running at 1.6 GHz. The signature feature of the Helio P25, however, is its support for dual-camera systems.
A dual-camera setup lurks behind the Doogee MIX.
Turn the Doogee MIX around and we've got just that – a dual camera setup, which works with a 16 MP Samsung ISOCELL main sensor, paired with an 8 MP secondary sensor, which captures depth information. On the front, we have a 5 MP selfie snapper. Aside from this, users can choose between 4 GB and 6 GB of RAM, and storage of either 64 GB or 128 GB, which can be further expanded via microSD card of up to 128 GB. All of this is powered by a rather generous 3,380 mAh battery.
The Doogee MIX is available in 'Aurora Blue', 'Dazzle Black', and 'Coral Blue'
The Doogee MIX will be up for promotional sale starting at $169.99 from June 27 until July 4, but it should be kept in mind that possible shipping or import taxes may apply, depending on where you order it from.
