Today we come across the announcement of the DOOGEE V30, which boasts of being the first rugged smartphone capable of supporting the use of up to four eSIM cards (only 1 active). It must be remembered that the eSIM is the virtual version of the already more than well-known SIM card. In essence, having the SIM by software instead of having to insert a physical element into the device. This adds more versatility to the mobile device, since, in addition to being able to add two physical SIM cards! you can add a third through the eSIM. It is also ideal while traveling since you can have your usual line as an eSIM while leaving the slot free to add a second SIM for an Internet connection in the country you travel to.
Going into the details, the smartphone is much better than you can imagine. Proof of this is that we come across a 6.58-inch IPS panel at a Full HD+ resolution of 2,408 x 1,080 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz (480 nits). This panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 laminate. It’s also brought to life by a 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC. This offers a configuration of 2x Cortex-A78 @ 2.40 GHz plus 6x Cortex-A55 @ 2.00 GHz that provides the part of energy efficiency. This CPU is accompanied by ARM Mali-G68 graphics.
This SoC is coupled with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM along with 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage expandable with a microSD of up to 2 TB. As if that were not enough, all this is powered by a 10,800 mAh capacity battery that promises up to 22 hours of web browsing, 45 hours playing music, or 19 hours playing streaming content. This battery takes advantage of 66W fast charging technology. This allows charging from 0 to 55% in 30 minutes.
All this hardware is embedded in a chassis 18.3 mm thick with a total weight of 376 grams. Like all self-respecting ruggedized, its chassis has IP68, IP69K, and military MIL-STD-810H certifications. This translates to coming out unscathed from drops of up to 1.8 meters high! being submerged up to 1.5 meters in water, or resistance to shock, or extreme temperatures.
