Doogee already released some interesting devices recently, like Hitman DG850, IP67-certified Titans2 (DG700) and cute looking Leo DG280. Now another device is on its way – Doogee F1 Turbo mini. It’s the little brother of Doogee’s premium line – Turbo. The device looks promising and it packs some features, which make debut to a smartphone produced by Doogee.
Doogee F1 Turbo mini should be relatively compact device with 4.5-inch screen measuring 133.5 x 66 x 8.2mm. Let’s just compare it with one more popular model with the same screen size – Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. Its dimensions are 131.1 x 64.8 x 9.1 mm. The difference in heights is 2.4mm and the widths 1.2mm. It means that S5 mini is shorter and narrower. However Doogee F1 Turbo mini is slimmer and actually weights less – 112 gr compared to 120 gr. There’s a metal frame on both sides (left and right), which gives the phone a nice look.
As we said the display is 4.5-inches. The resolution is just qHD, which gives about 244 ppi density. Combine this with 16 mln colors and you should actually have decent video quality. The screen of Doogee F1 Turbo mini is IPS, which should give good viewing angles.
This will be the first Doogee’s phone to pack 64-bit processor. The phone is equipped with MTK6732 – quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. It’s quite powerful and should help for flawless performance. The operating system is Android KitKat 4.4, but there’s a rumor that the phone may be upgraded to Lollipop 5.0 later (which will be great, if actually Doogee F1 Turbo mini use the full potential of the 64-bit processor). The GPU is Mali-T760. We can only hope that Doogee managed to optimize it for their phone, so we can enjoy one great performance in terms of graphics. There will be only 1 GB ram, but it’s a budget device after all. The on board storage is 8 GB, but it’s expandable with microSD card up to 64 GB.
Of course Doogee F1 Turbo mini will be equipped with two cameras. One 8 MP camera will flashlight will be the main one on the back and a 5 MP snapper will take care of your selfies.
The phone supports wide variety of network frequencies and even 4G (probably that’s why it’s Turbo). The device can work at:
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE: 800/1800/2100/2600MHz
The battery is with capacity of 2000mAh. We’ll see how well it will performe combined with more powerful processor and 4G network.
Doogee F1 Turbo Mini comes for just $125. It’s a good deal for 4G enabled smartphone with 64-bit processor and probably Android 5.0 update. It’s still pre-sell, but should start shipping after February 5th. We are waiting for our review unit, so stay tuned.
