Doogee T6, powered by a humungous 6000mAh battery, to launch in November?
Would you give up high-end specs on your smartphone in exchange for longer battery life? If so, the unannounced Doogee T6 might be right up your alley. The handset has a screen of unknown size and resolution, but is rumored to feature the MediaTek MT6735 chipset, carrying a quad-core CPU and the Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. If true, the phone will include the Pump Express fast charging technology. But the selling point of the device is the huge 6000mAh battery that reportedly will keep the phone running for days before requiring a charge.

The Doogee T6 will offer 2GB of RAM and 16GB of non-expandable storage. An 8MP camera adorns the back of the device, with a 2MP front-facing snapper ready to take selfies and handle video chats. At 10.2mm, the T6 won't be a thin phone, but that's because of the massive battery that is inside. The Doogee T6 is said to have Android 5.0 pre-installed, and the back cover features a unique metal wire drawing technology.

The Doogee T6 is expected to launch in November, making it available for the all-important holiday shopping season. While pricing is unknown for the moment, those familiar with Doogee expect the handset to be affordable.


Thanks for the tip!

Why MTK6735? Why not Helio X10? The price different betwen this 2 CPU is NOT that big, but the performance different is noticeable.

In Southeast Asia, people are attracted to every gimmick they don't even understand. That much battery life isn't needed and Mediatek SoC's pretty much suck.

I'm confused, are you from South east Asia? why is better battery life a gimmick? and what problems have you encountered while using Mediatek SoC's?

Calling more battery life a gimmick is kinda weird. While the handset doesn't interest me, I would sign up for one with a large battery like that. Even at the expense of thinness.

No, Rebel, I'm just kinda weirded out about why people would pack a battery like this. But TBH, I'm also interested in this phone despite looking unappealing. Yes, I'm from Philippines.

Because most phones won't even last a day with heavy use. Making sure you can make it to the day easily, no matter the use, would be a huge advantage. Or even two days with normal use, is something I personally would like to see in a handset. Or even make it 3 days with light use, perfect for going to a festival. And ofcourse you can bring a battery pack to charge it. But it would mean a little bit more nuisance. Also battery life goes down with every charge, so it would mean the battery lasts longer in years too. So far I haven't bought a mobile phone packing such a large battery, but that is mainly because the phone has too many disadvantages in other fields for me to even consider buying it. Otherwise hell yeah I would buy one with a battery like this.

The non-expandable storage and only 16 GB just kills this phone.

In America people are convinced that one company creates everything. They don't understand the first thing about cell phones in general. They don't understand that a battery bigger than 1800 mAh is a benefit.

In America we are Not convinced that one company creates everything, in fact, the American inventor, of the cell you are enjoying today, used to work for Motorola. Enjoy your cell, and stop talking nonsense.

I have no idea of the performance, but, I also jumped off the "flagship" crap about 2 years ago and went with a mid spec device. Thinking I wouldn't like it, ordered it from Amazon so it would be as hassle free as possible. The Huawei Mate2. FOUR THOUSAND milliamp battery. 6.1" 720p, snap400 chip, 2gb ram, ext SD. Came with JB4.3 which didn't get the update to 4.4, but did get 5.01, then 5.11 in June. VERY stable, snappy, and 2-3 DAYS on one charge. I'm not a game player. My phone is a tool for work mostly. The camera gets used almost daily, and I've had some people claim that there is no way this photo came from a cell phone, but, it does (amateur photographer over 30 years, I know how to compose a photo and hold the camera STILL). All of this for $300.00 I gave up on the overpriced flagship crap. What's the use, if you aren't a gamer. Other than benchmarks, my phone runs APPS just as well as any other phone. People are suckers for specs, and pay out the rear for that "honor".
