Chinese phone maker Doogee are preparing a replacement to their popular Valencia model. Here are the first details of the Doogee Velencia 2.
Doogee jumped on to the scene and made great progress when they first started it. The brand pounced on the market at a time when Zopo were struggling, but since their initial success the brand seems to be treading water and not really making any progress.
At MWC we saw a couple of new Doogee devices, and although we were told they were for the entry-level market, the specifications still seemed a little on the low side when compared to devices from Elephone, and even JiaYu.
The Doogee Valencia 2 seems to be stuck in the same rut and according to GizChina.es will feature an octacore MT6592M SoC, around 1GB RAM and possibly a qHD display.
At this point in the Chinese smartphone industry we should be looking at $120 smartphones with 64bit MT6732 processors and at least 2GB RAM, devices like we are seeing from Elephone. If Doogee continue to fall behind the competition how long can they expect to survive?
