DOOGEE is planning to announce a smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner this year. Our source at the company said that the phone will be called the DOOGEE V, and that it will debut sometime this year. In addition to an in-display fingerprint scanner, the device will also sport a ‘full-screen’ flexible display, claims the source. On top of all that, our source has shared a couple of renders of this smartphone, and the company has actually released a first teaser video for the DOOGEE V. Now, to make things even more interesting, the DOOGEE V’s flexible display also surfaced on YouTube, though the video has been shared by a third-party source, it seems.
This is a lot of info to take in, that’s for sure. We are expecting to see quite a few smartphones with in-display fingerprint scanners this year, as Synaptics not only announced, but already started to mass produce its in-display fingerprint scanner. Synaptics announced that it started producing fingerprint scanners for the top 5 smartphone manufacturers out there, and DOOGEE is not one of them, so the company will probably have to wait for its turn, which means that this handset may arrive in the second half of the year. In any case, if you take a look at the provided images and video, you will notice that the phone is made out of metal and glass, while it sports a dual camera setup on the back. The device also comes with a notch on the top, and that notch is not exactly super small, it’s close the size of the notch on the iPhone X. The phone sports really thin bezels all around, and it seems like all of its buttons will sit on the right, while its dual camera setup will protrude on the back a bit.
Our source also claims that the DOOGEE V will ship with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, just like one of the OnePlus 5T variants, and in addition to that, the phone will sport 128GB of internal storage. That is more or less, DOOGEE will quite probably release more info regarding this smartphone in the near future, so stay tuned for that.
