Doogee Mobile will reportedly launch a new smartphone in 2018 that looks very much like Apple’s reigning flagship, the iPhone X.

Twitter leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) recently tweeted an image showing the Doogee V from all angles. He noted that the upcoming handset will have a 6.2-inch diagonal with fingerprint scanning built directly into the screen, rather than into the home button, which is almost always the case.

On a related note, it was reported in December 2017 that the first phone with an in-screen fingerprint sensor will come from Vivo. The Chinese OEM has yet to reveal the smartphone model that will take advantage of that tech.

The Doogee V is expected to feature the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio; dual back-facing cameras; and a USB Type-C connector alongside a traditional 3.5mm jack. We know Doogee has no problems pulling ideas from other manufacturers, but at least the company knows better than to pull the plug too early on analog headphones.

The curved back of the phone actually resembles that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 (and, allegedly, the Galaxy S9). The surface is likely made of glass as well. Another thing to take away from the image is the presence of the infamous notch on the forehead of the Doogee V, though it doesn’t seem to hold as many components as the iPhone X. Much of the phone’s specs remain a mystery for now.

Hopefully, Doogee won’t make us wait too long to get the full scoop on the phone.
