Chinese OEM Doogee (pronounced “doo-jee”) Mobile has a new attraction for people looking to score an 18:9 phone for cheap.

Meet the P3,599 (about $69) Doogee X53, a basic smartphone with a couple of not-so-basic features, including a wider screen and two back-facing cameras. It is now on sale through Lazada Philippines, and comes with official warranty and support.

In terms of form factor, you’re looking at a curvy, compact handset with reasonably narrow bezels and a backing that peels off to reveal dual micro-SIM slots, plus an expansion slot for an SD card. It doesn’t support the faster 4G LTE standard, although that’s pretty much a given at this price point.

The Doogee X53’s screen is 5.3 inches; the resolution, non-HD at 960 x 480 pixels. But the aspect ratio is wider, so video streaming and playing non-intensive games on this thing should be an enjoyable experience for anyone upgrading from a feature phone, or an older, equally low-cost Android.

The main camera consists of two 5-megapixel sensors, with one lens featuring an aperture of f/1.8 and a 100-degree-wide field of view. Pretty impressive stuff given the bargain price. Hopefully, we can put the camera through its paces to evaluate its real-world performance.

The rest of the specs come with the territory: quad-core MediaTek processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM; 2-megapixel selfie camera; Android 7.0 Nougat; and 2,200mAh battery that aims to deliver 400 hours of standby time.
