Alien-inspired Doogee S98 Pro rugged phone price and launch date revealed

Doogee last month introduced the world to a new rugged phone Doogee S98 Pro which inspired by aliens with night vision camera, thermal imaging sensor and ultra-wide camera. Today, Doogee finally confirmed that this awesome new game changer is set to launch on June 6th.

Summary of highlights

The one-of-a-kind alien design of the rugged phone has won a European Good Design Award. The company says it will have the best camera systems on a rugged phone. A professional-grade thermal camera is flanked on either side by a 48MP SONY IMX582 main camera and a 20MP SONY IMX350 night vision camera. According to the company, they made the decision to use an InfiRay sensor because it offers more than twice the thermal resolution of any other thermal sensor on the market. Its high frame rate of 25Hz ensures images are detailed to properly detect and diagnose humidity, high temperatures, blockages, and more. In addition, it comes with the Dual Spectrum Fusion algorithm which allows the images from the thermal camera and the main camera to be combined into a single image.

The front camera, however, is a 16MP Samsung S5K3P9SP, which is housed in a cutout at the top of the screen.

Inside the phone, MediaTek Helio G96 runs the show. It is an octa-core chipset capable of reaching a clock speed of 2.05 GHz, which means it is capable of gaming. It is paired with 8GB+256GB memory for faster and more seamless operation. Storage can also be expanded up to 512 GB using a micro SD card.

The device will come with a 6000mAh battery and a 33W Type-C super-fast charger. Wireless charging is available with support up to 15W.

We can’t finish an article on a phone until we’ve talked about its display. The S98 Pro will sport a 6.3-inch FHD+ LCD IPS teardrop display with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass for protection.

The smartphone comes with other great features, such as a custom button, NFC, support for 4 navigation satellites (BeiDou, GALILEO, GPS and GLONASS), IP68, IP69K ratings and MIL-STD complaint -810H. The phone will also run Android 12 out of the box with up to 3 years of security update guarantee from the company.
