Doogee S89 series – the rugged phone series with a 12000mAh battery and RGB lights 

Doogee is launching new phones with some killer upgrades. They are rugged and the first of their kind with a huge battery.

The Nothing Phone One has been in the news recently for its unusual design. And it is already inspiring other brands. For example, 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 an enormous 12000 mAh battery.

The Nothing Phone One advertises its light effects such as Glyph. But Doogee markets theirs as “Breathing Light.” The Doogee’s breathing light has more of an RGB light effect than the Nothing phone.

Users can customize what colors they prefer and assign them to different functions. Doogee also claims users can control other aspects such as light pattern and speed and select a series of colors to glow in the desired sequence.

If you have a sense of déjà vu, it’s because the S89 series is based on the legacy of an earlier Doogee series, the Doogee S88 series.

The S88 series, with a massive 10,000 mAh battery and RGB light, remains one of the best-selling series to come out of the company, and they are trying to recapture that fire again.

Doogee claims it has found a way to engineer a 12000mAh battery into the S89 series’ 19.4mm thick case. This is impressive considering the size of the battery and the company’s ability to manage to keep the weight of the phone at 400g.

When you hear a large battery, it sounds good until you realize you have to charge it. Doogee’s fast charging technology is up to par with its large battery ambitions.

The S89 Pro will ship with a 65W fast charger (the first rugged phone to ship with a 65W charger), which can recharge the battery from 0 to 100% in about two hours. The S89, however, only comes with a 33W charger.

While the S89 series features a tri-camera setup for cameras, the S89 Pro goes for a 64MP + 20MP + 8MP setup on the back. The S89, on the other hand, comes with a 48MP + 20MP + 8MP setup.

Both devices’ main cameras are tuned to get the best out of every shot. The 20MP sensors are for night vision, and the 8MP sensors are for ultra-wide shots. Sony built all the sensors used on the rear of this series.

Under the hood, the S89 series trusts the MediaTek Helio P90 to handle its performance. As a result, the S89 Pro will pair the chipset with a memory configuration of 8GB + 256GB.

The S89, however, features an 8GB + 128GB base memory setup. Of course, 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-proof.

Furthermore, it also comes with NFC, runs Android 12 OS out of the box, reverses charging, has a custom button, and many more.

Pricing, availability, and giveaways

The S89 series’ launch date is August 22nd on both AliExpress and Doogeemall
