Chinese company Doogee has prepared for the release of a new frameless smartphone Doogee X55. The model belongs to the budget series X and has the main distinctive feature – the placement of a fingerprint scanner on the side face of the case.
Over the past year, the fashion for full-screen models has only increased. At the same time, the screen began to occupy almost the entire front panel of the phone. And before the manufacturers of smartphones appeared a dilemma, where to place some components, for example, and the sensor of fingerprints. Usually, it is located on the back surface, but it is not very convenient to use.
Doogee decided to make an innovation in this matter and built a fingerprint scanner into the side. According to the company, it is much more convenient to unlock the phone.
With the side fingerprint sensor, the Doogee X55 will allow a fast and efficient unlocking. It will only take one-tenth of a second, with a 360-degree angle of recognition. It will be a matter of changing the habit and getting used to putting your finger on the side. It will no longer be a nuisance for small hands.
Doogee X55: Specifications
Doogee X55: Design
Design Doogee X55 is a combination of several popular models – the iPhone X (this is the rear view) and the Meizu M6s (side view).
The case has a metal frame and rounded corners – which emphasizes the laconicism and modernity of the appearance of the novelty. High-quality 2.5D glass, from which the front and rear panels are made, also adds a sense of elegance and softness to the appearance of the Doogee X55. The smartphone is equipped with a 5.5-inch frameless screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and HD+ resolution (1280 × 680 pixels). Side frames are minimal, but at the top and bottom of the screen we see a fairly large frame, but the “Home” button below the display is missing.
On the back panel, made of ceramics, there is a module of the rear main camera, which is similar to the design of the iPhone X. It is in the upper right corner and consists of two vertically mounted cameras with the same resolution of 8.0 MP + 8.0MP and an LED flash located between them. The module is slightly raised above the surface of the cover. The logo of the company – Doogee.
At the top end there is a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, on the bottom there are only two speaker grilles, and on the right side, there is a flipped button on/off of the smartphone and below it a side fingerprint reader.
The dimensions of Doogee X55 are the length of 148.84 mm, the width of 72.04 mm and the thickness of 8.6 mm. The weight of the device – 183 grams. The smartphone is available in three colors: black, blue and gold.
