The S58 Pro could be the perfect smartphone for those working outside. It’s IP68 waterproof and dustproof meaning it can be submerged up to a maximum depth of 1m underwater for up to 24 hours or 1.5m depth for 2 hours. The phone can also withstand extreme temperatures – between 70°C to -55°C, so is perfect for use whether skiing or on a desert safari!
The S58 Pro has a 5180mAh high-capacity battery that supports fast charging, and DOOGEE claim a 2-3 days battery life with normal use. They tell us that it’ll cope with 16 hours video, 12 hours gaming, 42 hours music and 24 hours calling so there is no need to be bored on travels.
The chipset is the Mediatek MT6762V coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD up to 256 GB. The device runs on Android 10.0, and comes with NFC so Google Pay is supported along with Bluetooth 5.0. The DOOGEE S58 Pro incorporates a one-press customized function button for quick access to apps.
In addition there’s a Sony IMX298 Triple Camera (16MP+2MP+2MP). and has the 16MP Samsung front camera. One click can turn on the underwater camera mode so swimmers and divers can take high-definition movies. The ultra-wide angle camera allows the S58 Pro to produce panoramic pictures and uses a Bokeh effect to sharpen images and keep them as vibrant as possible. The 2MP portrait camera also features portrait true restoration and 2MP macro camera includes clear freeze to produce the best images possible.
Using a capacitance touch sensor with an ergonomic design, the S58 Pro can be unlocked with fingerprint ID eliminating the need for a password. Using 360-degree accurate identification, the phone can be unlocked in just 0.19 seconds.
Hopefully we will get a S58 Pro in for a full review, in the not to distant future.
The S58 Pro is available from Gearbest and AliExpress for $199.99 and from Amazon UK for £170.99.
