DOOGEE launched its new GT variant of the S96 Android smartphone some time ago. Now, it has finally revealed that its release will start in earnest tomorrow (October 15, 2022) with some special discounts for its "limited" gold edition. The GT features an updated chipset and selfie camera in addition to the "extreme" durability ratings of the original S96 Pro.

DOOGEE conducted its first formal smartphone refresh earlier in 2022, in that it took its already "successful" S96 Pro and replaced its MediaTek Helio G90 SoC with the G95, and also upgraded its selfie camera to 32MP in resolution.

Otherwise, the resulting GT variant retains all the Pro's most interesting attributes, the night vision function of its rear cameras, IP68/IP69K/MIL-STD-810H-rated build and microSD card support included. Then again, DOOGEE never did mention a price for the iterative upgrade at its launch.

Now, however, the OEM has confirmed that its limited edition version, finished in a gold color rather than the khaki of the 'standard' S96 GT, will retail for US$249.99 (or £227) via either AliExpress or the first-party DOOGEEMall.

However, an introductory deal to come into effect on October 15, 2022 takes US$50/£57 off that price, meaning it could be ordered for just US$179.99/£180. DOOGEE has not mentioned how long this offer will last.
