The Doogee S95 Pro is a new phone with 8GB of RAM, a triple rear camera, an IP68 certification and a 5150mAh battery. This capacity can be extended with a 3500mAh power-pack for the device that fits onto its back via a magnetic interface. There is also a detachable speaker for this phone that works along the same lines.

The Doogee S95 Pro is a new mobile device with IP68 ingress-protection. However, its tough-phone attributes don't stop there: the OEM also claims that it adheres to the IP69K and MIL-STD-810G standards of durability. It is just as well, as its back is equipped with magnetic pins at which modules that act as alternate rear panels with specific functions. 

The familiarity of this concept loses even more points for guessing at in the face of the "module" types Doogee has made available for the S95 Pro. The magnetic battery attachment adds a sizeable 3500mAh to its pre-existing 5150mAh capacity, perhaps rendering the user prepared for extremely long hikes or other activities far from a power source.

They are also rated for Doogee's "Turbo quick charging"; however, at rates of 24 watts (W, wired) or 10W (wireless), it could ideally be even more so, especially when re-filling a theoretical 8650mAh combined energy deficit.

The S95 Pro's second magnetic accessory is (surprise, surprise) a "HiFi" module with dual 27 millimeter (mm) 6W speakers. Besides this aspect of the phone, it is also equipped with a triple rear camera in a square housing. The main sensor here is a Sony 48MP sensor, albeit an IMX 582 rather than 586.

This new Doogee phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio P90 SoC, a 2018 processor matched here with an OS based on Android 9.0 (Pie). The S95 Pro comes in black and starts at US$369.99 on AliExpress, or $469.99 with both its Mods modules.
