Doogee X5 4G/LTE smartphone with 5 inch display and 1GB RAM is priced at $49.99 (Rs.3176)
When we think of low-cost we think of phones like the Redmi 2 or Honor series, but Doogee are aiming to redefine what is affordable with the $49.99 Doogee X5.
Doogee is a Chinese smartphone OEM which has been releasing smartphones like crazy lately. The company has unveiled a number of mid-range offerings, and a few more are inbound, and same can be said about the company’s ‘F3? flagship. Doogee will release a couple of F3 variants, and one of those variants will include the wood back cover. That being said, we’ve received some interesting information from our source, it seems like this company is also working on an extremely affordable handset which is supposed to launch very soon.
Initial deatails of the unreleased Doogee X5 look promising, the main highlights being the exclusive first use of the quad-core MT6580 chipset from Mediatek, a 5-inch HD display, and of course LTE.
Doogee have also revealed that the X5 will come with a 5 mega-pixel main camera and 2200mAh battery, while the first press images of this budget handset show a dual LED rear camera.
Images also reveal that the Doogee X5 is quite a handsome model, coming in either black or white colour options. In fact the overall design is close to the Xiaomi Mi4i, however with a Mediatek chip we expect better performance.
Speaking of its price, the Doogee X5 will cost only $49.99 according to the source, and will hit the market next month, in August. This is a killer price tag, especially if Doogee managed to put 1GB of RAM in this thing. In addition to the MT6580 chipset, Doogee will also launch a high budget & low-cost version with Mediatek MT6735 processor too; however pricing of this model hasn’t been announced.
The time to market for the Doogee X5 is sometime in August. We will try to get hold of one for review so keep posted. There you have it folks, we’ll let you know if anything new pops up.
