“Borderless design” could actually be chosen as the word of the year. Nearly every manufacturer tried this year to keep the rim around the display as small as possible. Doogee showed with the first mix that Rand is actually overrated. Soon the successor will be available for sale and he has it all in his pocket.
The first Doogee mix was still very much oriented on the Xiaomi Mi Mix, the second edition looks more like Galaxy Note 8, unfortunately the 3.5mm headphone connection was not ‘copied’, this is missing from the Doogee Mix 2, but there is USB-C. Above and below the display you can still find some margin, but at the sides this is gone. In return, you lose the homebutton/fingerprint sensor on the front side. The sensor has moved under the dual camera to the back. The dual camera consists of a 16 and a 13 megapixel sensor, both with an f/2.0 aperture. The front cameras (plural!) trigger with 8 megapixels, one of the two cameras has a 130° wide angle, so that nothing stands in the way of group-selfs.
Under the hood has also done some things, the Mix 2 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P25 SoC together with 6GB RAM and 64GB of memory, which is not enough for those who don’t have enough memory, it can also use an SD card. The battery is generously proportioned with 4060 mAh and should be more than sufficient for a full day of intensive use. The display is pleasingly large (6 inches) and the resolution of 1080*2160 ensures a pixel density of 403ppi, so eagle eyes should also be satisfied. Android 7.1 certainly does a good job as a software basis, but you shouldn’t expect a fast update to Oreo. LTE Band 20 is also included, as well as the possibility to use two SIM cards if you don’t use the SD card.
The price of the Doogee Mix 2 for pre-orders will be approx. If you are interested, you can save almost 100 Euro by ordering in advance. The Mix 2 is available in blue, black and gold.
