Doogee unveils Titans 3 T3 smartphone with top edge display
The recent Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is inspiring others to make use of the otherwise apathetic edges of smartphones. Why have another boring edge when you can slap another screen on it?
The Doogee Titans 3 T3 smartphone utilizes a standard 5-inch 720p display with another screen on the top edge of the device. This secondary screen can show the time and likely any incoming text and messages while the phone itself is idle. Thus, users can potentially clip the phone onto their pockets and peek at updates and emails without needing to wake the device. The positioning of this secondary display may make it more useful than the curved edge screen on the Galaxy S6 Edge and it certainly reminds us of the old beepers back in the 80s.
Core specifications include a MediaTek MTK6735 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC, and "iris identification" for login and security. Its chassis will be waterproof metal alloy with leather backing. Otherwise, not much else is known about the device including the resolution of the secondary display or the sensors of the front and rear cameras.
Doogee is planning to launch the Titans 3 T3 by this September for a yet to be announced starting price.
