Back in June, we showed you how Doogee planned on advertising the rugged Y100 Pro. After seeing a lot of shards of broken 2.5D glass all over the floor following fall evaluations, the new smartphone maker determined to reinforce the display with a special variant of Gorilla glass that’s .8mm thicker than Corning’s standard variant. This not only rectified the issue, it let Doogee to film an advertisement showing the way the display may be used to break walnuts!
Now the Doogee has introduced a new smartphone, dubbed Doogee Y100 Plus. The new phone packs almost everything from Y100 Pro, but adds a bigger 5.5-inch 720 x 1280 resolution display as opposed to the 5-incher on the Pro version. Naturally a bigger display need more power juice, so the 2,200mAh battery of Y100 Pro has been replaced with a 3,000mAh cell on new phone. The phone supports dual-SIM functionality and cat.4 LTE networks.
The remaining specs contain a MediaTek MT6735 chipset with a quad-core 1.3GHz processor and the Mali-T720 GPU. In the memory department, the phone has a 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card slot. A 13 megapixel camera with Sony sensor is employed at back, while an Omni-vision 8 megapixel camera take cares of selfies.
It is not known when and at what price the Doogee Y100 Plus will hit the market shelves. Stay tuned for more updates.
