Doogee X5 Max will be last year’s X5 on steroids


One of the last year’s budget “dark horse” phones was certainly Doogee X5 and because you never mess with something that works the company plans to introduce new Doogee X5 Max model improved in almost every aspect. But even with the design and hardware changes they promise to keep the same price/performance ration as before.

First major improvement will be bigger battery with 4000 mAh, which means 67 % larger capacity than X5 and theoretically could last up to 2.5 days of modest usage. Doogee X5 Pro is also getting new fingerprint scanner with 360 degree scanning and some additional functions attached to it.

Phone will also get metal frames and the cameras will both be equal, 8 MPix shooters with the difference only in aperturt, back one with f/1.8 and front with f/2.0. Another inovation is the hyped “dual ID” system allowing users to sign in in two accounts at once, for example Facebook and Twitter. The UI is going to be based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Doogee X5 Pro should be on sale starting May 20th in black and white versions and while the price is still unknown, it shouldn’t be much higher than with the X5.
