The Nothing (1) phone has recently made headlines for its unusual design. And is it already inspiring other brands, or… Doogee plans to launch the versatile S89 series, a pair of rugged phones with an RGB light effect on the back. But that's not the only thing that makes the S89 series unique. This series comes with a huge 12000 mAh battery.
The Nothing Phone (1) advertises its light effects as "Glyph". But Doogee markets theirs as "Breathing Light." The Doogee Breathing Light has more of an RGB light effect compared to the Nothing Phone. Users can customize the colors they prefer and assign them to different features. Doogee also claims that users will be able to control other aspects such as the pattern and speed of the light and select a series of colors to shine in the desired sequence.
If you get a feeling of déjà vu, it's because the S89 series builds on the legacy of a previous Doogee series: the Doogee S88 series. The S88 series, with a whopping 10,000mAh battery and RGB lighting, remains one of the company's best-selling series, and they're trying to recapture that fire again.
Doogee claims that he has found a way to fit a 12,000mAh battery into the 19.4mm thick case of the S89 series. This is impressive considering the size of the battery and the company's ability to manage to keep the phone's weight down to 400g.
When you hear about a big battery, it sounds good until you realize you have to charge it. Doogee's fast charging technology lives up to its big battery ambitions. The S89 Pro will ship with a 65W fast charger (the first rugged phone to ship with a 65W charger), which is capable of recharging the battery from 0 to 100% in about two hours. The S89, on the other hand, only comes with a 33W charger.
Camera-wise, the S89 series features a three-camera setup, with the S89 Pro going for a 64MP + 20MP + 8MP setup on the rear. The S89, on the other hand, comes in a 48MP + 20MP + 8MP configuration. The main cameras on both devices are fine-tuned to get the best out of every photo you take. The two 20 MP sensors are for night vision, and lastly, the 8 MP sensors are meant for ultra-wide shots. Sony has made all the sensors used on the back of this series.
Under the hood, the S89 series relies on the MediaTek Helio P90 to manage its performance. The S89 Pro will associate the chipset with a base memory configuration of 8GB + 256GB. The S89, meanwhile, has a base memory configuration of 8GB + 128GB.
It goes without saying that the S89 series is waterproof and dustproof with its IP68 and IP69K ratings. It is also MIL-STD-810H certified, making it drop resistant. Furthermore, it also comes with NFC, runs Android 12 OS out of the box, reverse charging, custom button, and many more.
