Fingerprint scanner on the Doogee F5 can take you to multiple locations

Fingerprint scanner on the Doogee F5 can take you to multiple locations
One of the most innovative smartphone companies coming out of China is Doogee, and there is talk about a new fingerprint scanner that will be on the Doogee F5. What makes this fingerprint scanner standout is that it can take you to multiple locations depending on how long you keep your finger on the scanner button.

For example, keep your finger on the button for half a second, and you'll be sent to the home screen. If you keep your finger on the button for one and a half seconds, you'll see the "Recent Apps" menu on the display. Once you put your finger on the scanner, your fingerprint is automatically checked. If it matches with the print stored on the phone, the handset is unlocked.

The Doogee F5 will have the fingerprint scanner on the back, just under the camera and the dual flash. The phone employs liquid metal, which is harder than aluminum or titanium. The device will feature a Gorilla Glass protected 5.5-inch screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The MediaTek MT6753 SoC will power the phone, bringing an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T720 MP3 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside. From back to front, we should see a 13MP/5MP camera combo. A 3000mAh battery is on board and can be used with 5V2A fast charging. The F5 supports 4G LTE connectivity.

The Doogee F5 will be released later this month, priced at just $149.99.

"employs liquid metal, which is harder than aluminum or titanium" It's like saying "two of the strongest metals on earth" lol And is it Liquidmetal, a branded name by Caltech? Because liquid metal (gallium alloys) are... liquid at room temperature

its a beautiful phone and premium looking... I think I have to skip Note 5 because I am not impressed at all and save massive amount of dollars by ending up with beautiful Doggy
