HONG KONG, Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- What does the usual rugged phone look like? Clumsy, heavy body, out-dated CPU, low pixels photos and small storage? For the longest time, the rugged phone market has been full of these types of products that could be used only for voice calls. On the other hand, as more and more people become interested in exploring the outdoors and outdoor sports, the need for a powerful, rugged smartphone has increased. DOOGEE, the professional smartphone manufacturer, aims to deliver a promising new solution to the market with its recently unveiled brand-new rugged phone S60.
DOOGEE S60 (http://bit.ly/2v3JIJT) is designed not only in a rugged way but also equipped with flagship features. "If you are looking for a rugged phone that you can use in daily life, S60 could be your best choice," according to DOOGEE.
Design: manly, strong, special, with IP68
As a rugged phone, DOOGEE S60 had achieved the certified high rating of IP68 protection, meaning it stands over 30 minutes' immersion under 1.5m water, and keeps sands and dust from getting in the phone. The body is designed with special materials and enhanced craftsmanship for drop and shock resistance. In a word, the device is targeting outdoor players and perfectly meeting their needs.
The released photo shows a gold finish with black plastic cushion around the corners will be what DOOGEE S60 looks like. Almost the whole back cover of S60 is made of aluminum alloy, a highly intensive aerospace grade material which is much stronger than glass. After multiple stages of anodic oxidation and sand blasting, the metal is then hard enough to resist drops and scratches. The back is not smooth at all, but engineered with a number of practical design elements such as the honeycomb and screws that are symmetrically distributed.
To achieve the IP68 rating of waterproof and dustproof, details are the key. For example, the headphone jack and USB hole that must be open are protected with waterproof rubber plugs. As for the exposed openings, like the speaker, there is waterproof glue adhesive inside of them.
Regarding the display aspect, S60 minimizes the bezel in order to maximize its unique 5.2" FHD display. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Overall, S60 is manly, strong, and uniquely special in the market.
