In December last year, DooGee published a video showing a smartphone in a rather unusual way, along with the declaration that it really will be produced, I did not believe. It seemed to me that it was too ambitious for such a company. Meanwhile, the manufacturer showed evidence that it did not throw words into the wind and is actually working on such a model.
Although smartphones vary from year to year, everyone still looks like a smartphone in the common sense of the word, that is, a single rectangle with a smaller or larger display. Even the two-way curves do not make such a difference, although they are nevertheless an element that distinguishes the device from the competition.
For this reason, every project that breaks out of this “scheme” immediately raises doubts and disbelief, and especially when its manufacturer is a known, albeit not very important producer on the global market. Meanwhile, DooGee did not throw words into the wind (and companies from the Middle Kingdom like to promise a lot) as yesterday a smartphone leaker @VenyaGeskin1 posted Hands-on photos of the phone he claims to be DooGee Mix 4.
The design is all the more uncommon, that almost the entire surface of the front panel covers the display, and the “eye” cameras and speakers for talks are located on the second (let’s call it) half. On the back, there is a dual camera setup. Interestingly, in the video posted by DooGee, on the back there was a fingerprint reader, but the pictures show that DooGee will use a fingerprint scanner integrated into the screen, and thus also an OLED panel.
According to @VenyaGeskin1, who got the above pictures from DooGee himself, the smartphone is to be called DooGee MIX 4. This means that we should not expect its premieres this year, and not until 2019 at the earliest. The producer has not presented the MIX 3 model yet, and we know that it is planned in the future (and has a mobile camera like Huawei ShotX ):
Earlier we have seen alleged sketches showing Xiaomi’s concept for Mi Mix 3 with a front completely covered by the display. Xiaomi’s concept involved two displays, the front of the phone was covered by a display while the earpiece, camera, and necessary sensors resided on the back with a secondary display more likely an e-ink one.
All the time, however, it is still a prototype and much can change. No matter when this phone hits the market, the prototype seems pretty interesting. I would like to get one if this thing comes to be a reality.
