IT’S a curious coincidence that days after the announcement of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, Chinese startup Doogee Mobile has come out with a new borderless phone that takes after the Xiaomi concept. More interestingly, we’re looking at another Mix 2 but under the Doogee banner. Say hello to the Doogee Mix 2.

Not only does it look like Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 2 (whose price starts at 3,299 yuan or around P25,780 or $507), it has the same 6-inch screen size and 18:9 aspect ratio, with almost no bezels anywhere on sight, from side to side and top to bottom. The resolution is respectable at 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. The only grumble people might have so far: The body is missing a headphone jack, similar to the model it is trying to ape.

A mid-tier MediaTek P25 processor with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage runs the show, as opposed to Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon 835 chip, which is perfectly fine given this Doogee’s intended audience.

What we did not expect to hear about, however, are quad cameras on the Mix 2 clone — 16 and 13 megapixels on the back, dual 8-megapixel sensors up front, along with f/2.2 aperture and a wide-angle lens for group selfies.

The Doogee Mix 2 has quad cameras — 16 and 13 megapixels on the back and dual 8-megapixel sensors up front.

In addition, the generous 4,060mAh battery charges over a USB-C connection, and the fingerprint sensor is located around the back, just below the dual-lens primary camera. It has 3D facial recognition technology as an additional security feature.

Most of this sounds encouraging, and Doogee ought to have ironed out the kinks in its Android Nougat-based user interface by now. You might recall that optimization was one challenge the original Doogee Mix faced.

The Doogee Mix 2 is expected to cost around $200 (around P10,265 when converted to Philippine pesos) when it goes on sale soon through offline and online retailers in China.
