Though we have a lot of smartphones that are water resistant these days, few can only be regarded as rugged. And one that falls into the second category is the Doogee S68 Pro.
Doogee used two layers of Gorilla Glass 4 to make the display even more resilient. The display itself features a 5.9-inch IPS LCD panel with 1,080 x 2,280px resolution. All told, the phone is IP68 dust and water resistant (1.5m for 30 min), it can survive drops from 1.5m as well as extreme temperatures (-40°C to 60°C).
As far as the camera department is concerned, the S68 Pro features a surprisingly well-armed triple camera on its back. The 21MP main camera is joined by an 8MP telephoto shooter, plus a 130° ultra wide-angle cam (which can do macros from 3cm away). These are all Sony sensors, by the way.
The 16MP selfie camera (80° FoV) lives in a notch in the display and like the trio on the back it leverages the AI hardware of the chipset for processing.
The Doogee S68 Pro is powered by a MediaTek Helio P70, , a 12nm chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores (plus four A53) and a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. That is coupled with 6GB RAM and a 128GB in-built storage.
It is housed by a huge 6300mAh battery capacity. The battery can last you for 80 hours of talk time, 22 hours of gaming or 49 hours of video. The USB-C port supports 24W fast charging, with supports for the 5W reverse wireless charging. It runs on Android 9 Pie.
The sides of the phone are made of titanium-aluminum alloy and its corners have rubber shock absorbers. The alloy chassis extends behind the screen, giving it support in the event of a drop.
Other tidbits include NFC support (including payments), a fingerprint reader on the back (with face unlock as an alternative) and support for the four major global positioning systems.
