After the launch of Xiaomi Mi MIX with the three-sided bezel-less display, the smartphone market is flooded with several low-cost smartphones imitating the same design. Doogee MIX is one of those low-cost bezel-less smartphones and came with high-end specifications. Now, we have the Doogee MIX 2 as the successor to original Doogee MIX. While the design of the Doogee MIX resembles the Xiaomi Mi MIX, the new Doogee MIX 2 comes with the same 18:9 aspect ratio as seen on the Mi MIX 2.
It sports a 5.99-inch two-sided bezel-less display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone is powered 16nm MediaTek Helio P25 octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz and comes coupled with ARM Mali-T880 MP2 GPU. The company is offering the Doogee MIX 2 in two variants with 6GB and 8GB of RAM. Even with 6GB of RAM, the device should give the best performance even with heavy multitasking.
Both the 6GB and 8GB RAM variants include 128GB of onboard storage. There is also a MicroSD card slot for expanding the storage additionally up to 128GB. Coming to the cameras, the Doogee MIX 2 is equipped with a total of four camera sensors. The dual camera setup on the rear features 16MP and 13MP sensors with f/2.o aperture, dual LED flash, and 4K video recording support. On the front are the dual 8MP sensors with f/2.2 aperture, 130-degree wide-angle view, and LED flash.
It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box with the customized UI laid on top. Just below the rear camera is the circular fingerprint sensor which makes the device a bit more secure. Along with the fingerprint sensor, the Doogee MIX 2 also features 3D facial recognition technology to securely unlock the device. With all these specifications, the device is backed by a 4,060mAh non-removable battery. As of now, there is no information about the fast charging support.
Doogee also got rid of the 3.5mm audio jack with the launch of MIX 2. The USB Type-C port placed on the bottom edge is the only way to charge and connect the wired headsets. However, the users can opt for Bluetooth headsets to continue listening to music even while charging. It will approximately cost around $200 (approx Rs. 12,800) and will soon go on sale via several Chinese resellers.
