With a massive 12,000 mAh battery, 8/256 GB of memory/storage, the Helio P90-powered Doogee S89 Pro launches as the world's first rugged phone to ship with a 65 W fast charger. The non-Pro version comes with roughly the same hardware specs, but only 33 W fast charging, less storage, and a slightly inferior main camera.

In its quest for the ultimate rugged phone, Doogee is back with a follow-up to the S88 family. The Doogee S98 Pro launches today via AliExpress and DoogeeMall, accompanied by a slightly lower-specced non-Pro variant that uses the same processor, display, and battery, but sports less internal storage, a less potent main camera, and slower charging.

According to Doogee, the 12,000 mAh battery "is a dream come true for wildlife lovers" and can provide three to five days of active use depending on the tasks assigned to the handset during this period. The use scenario examples mentioned in the official press release includes up to 16 hours of gaming or 18 hours of streaming on a single charge.

Without further ado, these are the specs of the Doogee S98 Pro:

  • MediaTek Helio P90 octa-core processor
  • 8/256 GB memory/storage
  • 6.3-inch LCD FHD+ Dot display
  • 64 MP triple AI camera, 20 MP Sony IMX350 night vision shooter, Samsung 16 MP front camera
  • IP68/IP69K/MIL-STD-810H certified
  • NFC with Google Pay support
  • Android 12 
  • Bluetooth 5.1, FM radio, OTG, GPS with Glonass, Galileo, and Beidou support

Compared to the above, the regular Doogee S98 has a 48 MP triple AI camera, 128 GB internal storage, and ships with a 33 W charger. The other specs and features are the same.

Starting today and until August 26, those interested can take advantage of the world premiere sale discount that takes the price of the Doogee S98 Pro down to US$229.99. The Doogee S98 can be acquired for US$199.99. The regular prices of both devices are US$459.98 and US$399.98. The first 200 buyers can get a US$10 coupon for a further discount on their purchases.

Doogee S89 Series With 12000mAh Battery And 65W Fast Charge Officially Launched

The now infamous Doogee S89 Series as reported earlier is expected to launch today August 22nd on AliExpress and Doogeemall. The S89 series is the latest rugged phone from the Chinese manufacturer and packs a powerful 12000mAh battery. The company claims it is the first and only rugged phone that will ship with a 65W charger.

Having a big battery is a dream come true for wildlife lovers. The S89 series will give you three to five days of active use depending on user habits. This is awesome for long-haul drivers, hardcore campers, and off-grid people. It will also give you amazing mileage on other activities too. E.g. you can get up to 16 hours of gaming on a single charge, 18 hours on streaming, and many more visit the official S89 series to learn more.

Juicing up such a massive battery requires the right tool for the job. The S89 Pro will set a record of being the first rugged phone to ship with a 65W fast charger. It can charge the battery from 0 to 100% in just two hours. 

One thing that makes this series unique is its RGB light effect marketed as “breathing light”. It is a backlight just like the nothing phone (1) but with more customization options, functions, and colours. Everything from light colours, patterns and speed are some of the options a user can tweak to their liking. Just like the nothing phone, the breathing light effect can be assigned to phone functions such as incoming calls, and notifications or just sync it to music like an equalizer.

Aside from the above-mentioned two main features, the S89 series' other features include a tri-camera setup on the back, MediaTek Helio P90 chipset, 8GB RAM up to 256GB ROM, NFC, Android 12 OS, IP68, IP69K ratings, MIL-STD-810H certification, custom button, reverse charging, and many more.

As mentioned earlier, the S89 series will debut on AliExpress and DoogeeMall today. As part of a discount program, the S89 series will see its prices slashed for a limited time.

From today to August 26th, both devices in this series will see a 50% discount on their price. The S89 Pro will retail for $229.99 USD instead of its original price of $459.98 USD.  After the discount, the price of the vanilla version will drop to $199.99 USD from $399.98 USD.  If you are among the first 200 people to place an order, you can get a $10 coupon for a further discount on your purchase.
