The Chinese company Doogee has developed an unusual modular smartphone S90, which is not afraid of any tests. It is much better than budget devices, but does not seek to compete with flagships. The S90 model comes in an extreme version by default, complies with the civilian protection standard IP68 / IP69K and the military 810G. The gadget is not afraid of a blast wave, mold, salt and gases, it can lie under water for two weeks and works in the temperature range from -30 to +80 degrees Celsius.
The Doogee S90 weighs only 300 grams, while it has a display with a diagonal of 6, 18 inches and a resolution of 2246x1080 pixels, covered with Gorilla Glass 4. The heart of the system is the eight-core MediaTek Helio 60 chip, the best competitor to the Snapdragon 660 in the middle segment. Onboard there is 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, plus support for microSD cards.
The base camera is from Samsung, 16 megapixels, with support for machine learning systems. The front 8 megapixel is taken from Sony and has a 90-degree view. There is the whole gentleman's set of current time: a fingerprint scanner, NFC module, wireless charging and two slots for SIM cards. The smartphone is running Android 8.1, with numerous pre-installed software from MediaTek, and it is stated that the gadget is adapted for the use of programs with elements of artificial intelligence.
The Doogee S90 is called modular because everything described above is just a standard set, at a price of only $ 299. And if you pay another $ 100, you will get an additional power supply, digital radio and night vision module. The battery capacity will increase from 5, 050 to 10, 000 mAh, there will be a stable connection with similar devices within a radius of 10 km outside the coverage area of the telecom operator, and the possibility of semi-professional shooting at dusk and night will open up completely new horizons of use. There is also a gamepad module if you suddenly want to play in the jungle or at the North Pole.
The Doogee S90 smartphone will go to the first buyers who supported the startup next month.
