Doogee is really banking on people who want a bizarrely robust and utilitarian smartphone, and the S97 Pro is exactly the device for those people.
Like a lot of phones we’ve seen from them, the Doogee S97 Pro is a rugged smartphone. It comes with IP68 and IP69K that’s enough to withstand being submerged up to 1.5m of water for 30 minutes, dust, and being dropped from a height of 1.5m.
It also comes with an enormous 8,500mAh battery, possibly the largest you can get from a normal-looking smartphone. As per the company, you can game continuously on this for up to 27 hours.
The S97 Pro comes with a 33W fast charger that can provide 55% of charge in one hour and a full 100% in 2.5 hours. In addition, 10W wireless charging support is also present if you don’t mind waiting.
Another unique feature is a professional laser rangefinder on the top with a 40m distance measurement. It has four measurement modes: Single, Continuous, Area, and Volume measurements.
The rest of the specs are standard for a mid-range phone. There’s the 48-megapixel Samsung camera sensor, a MediaTek Helio G95 processor, and even NFC. But unlike other phones, it has a standard 60Hz refresh rate and only an HD+ resolution. It does come with a 120Hz touch sampling, though.
You can get the Doogee S97 Pro for a price of USD329 (around Php16,000). But as a special introductory offer, you can get it at AliExpress for only USD199 (around Php9,700) from June 21 to 25.
