Doogee’s Liquid Metal F2015 details revealed


doogee f2015

Liquid metal brings images of the liquid terminator to mind, but what it means for phones is a flexible alloy material and Doogee are making use of it.

Android smartphone makers in China have been experimenting with lots of different materials to create a good-looking, strong and long-lasting device. Early Chinese phones were plastic, then we saw stainless steel and now we are getting CNC alloy phones.

The next step is to use liquid metal, which isn’t quite as molten as its name suggests. A liquid metal phone would would provide a corrosion resistant, light-weight, durable and easily moldable body, and it is quite surprising to see that it is Doogee who will be one of the first to use it.

The Doogee F2015 is slated for a September release, where we see the 7.9mm Liquid Metal phone in the flesh for the first time. Doogee have also revealed that the F2015 will have an octacore 1.5Ghz MT6753 chipset, 3GB RAM, 5.5-inch FHD 2.5D display, and 3000mAh battery.

Those specs sound pretty good, but Doogee say that the highlights will be fingerprint id, double LED flash, 1mm bezel, 79% screen to body ratio and of course that liquid metal body.

Finally LTE will be supported, the front camera an 8 mega-pixel shooter, 13 mega-pixel rear, and Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Sound good to you? Us also! We will keep you up to date with more Doogee news and let you know once pricing has been announced.

    The resemblance to OnePlus One form factor is striking!

    This phone’s body is obviously not 100% liquid metal and also for some reason there is no picture of the front of the phone, I’m pretty sure there is a reason for that (lying about the bezels perhaps?). I just hope they won’t mess it up because overall this phone does look promising.

    If “Liquid Metal” is a Chinese knock-off of Liquidmetal then I doubt it would be much better for the end user compared to a chassis made of a conventional material (plastic or aluminium).

    I wish Doogee and Elephone would spend more money in actually improving their build quality and support service than they spend on Corel Draw and Photoship artists and marketing.
