August 26, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Doogee is a Chinese smartphone OEM which we’ve talked about quite frequently lately. They’ve released / are developing rather interesting smartphones, like the Doogee F3 and F3 Pro which launched recently, and some lower-end ones, like the Doogee X1 ‘bezel-less’ entry-level smartphone. Another upcoming Doogee-branded smartphone worth mentioning is the Homtom HT6 which will sport a 6,250mAh battery on the inside. Well, our source at the company has sent us some new regarding the upgraded version of their X5 handset which has been announced a while back, read on.

The Doogee X5 is an entry-level handset which sports 1GB of RAM and is powered by MediaTek’s MT6580 quad-core SoC. This device ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop pre-installed and costs only $59.99 (currently available for pre-order). Our source says that the company plans to release a somewhat more powerful variant of that handset which will sport 2GB of RAM and MT6735 64-bit quad-core SoC. The device will also offer 16GB of internal storage, unlike 8GB which are available on the original model. The Doogee X5 Pro will also sport a 2,400mAh battery on the inside, and will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box with some additions by Doogee on top of Google’s OS. The 5-megapixel shooter will be located on the back of this phone, and a 2-megapixel snapper will be available up front. The Doogee X5 Pro will offer 4G LTE connectivity (FDD-LTE, bands 1, 3, 7, 8, and 20), but we still don’t know how much will it cost.

This smartphone will be announced in September, and as soon as we find out how much will it cost, we’ll let you know. You can expect this phone to cost less than $100 for sure, so keep that in mind. The device will sport an identical design to its sibling, the Doogee X5, a device which you can check out in an image provided above this article. If you take a look at the gallery below the article, you’ll see a number of official promo images sharing all sorts of Doogee X5 Pro info.
