If you’re looking for a tough phone, you’ll discover that many of them have ridiculous features that you may really use in certain circumstances. However, the newest model from Doogee removes some of them and adds certain enhancements.
The Doogee S96 GT, priced at £227/$249.99, is now on sale through AliExpress. A special gold model of the phone is now available for $50 cheaper than its standard pricing.
While the Doogee S96 GT is mostly similar to its predecessor, the S96 Pro (which came out in late 2020), there are a few key differences and a few enhancements throughout. Chipset-wise, the S96 GT has an upgraded MediaTek Helio G95 CPU compared to the S96 Pro’s Helio G90.
Although it’s been around for a while (two years to be exact), the Helio G95 SoC still delivers a buttery-smooth performance in games like PUBG Mobile. For those who need even more storage space, Doogee now offers a 256GB model with 8GB of RAM, in addition to the 128GB model they already offered. There is no information on whether or not Android 13 will be updated to operate on it.
The Doogee S96 GT is a durable smartphone, so in addition to the limited-edition gold finish, you can get it in a hardened black shell with an orange interior. The Doogee S96 GT, like many of the top rugged Android phones, is water and dust resistant (earning it an IP68 rating) and certified as durable against the demands of military use (earning it MIL-STD-810G status).
Its 20MP rear-facing night vision camera, which, according to Doogee, can record photos from up to 15 meters away, is perhaps its most eye-catching feature. Aside from that, the S96 GT retains its forerunner’s camera configuration, which consists of a 48MP wide-angle lens, an 8MP ultrawide-angle camera, and a 2MP depth sensor.
The front-facing camera on the current model, in contrast, has been upgraded from 16MP on the S96 Pro to 32MP. The S96 GT is capable of 4K video recording.
Powering everything is a 6,320mAh battery that can be quickly recharged at up to 24W. In comparison to the S96 Pro, the phone’s wireless charging capabilities are superior, since it can now handle 15W charges.
There isn’t anything else that sets this model apart visually from its predecessor. It has the same IPS LCD screen size and resolution of 6.2 inches and 720 by 1520 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass is used for screen protection, although the exact version is unknown.
