The Chinese manufacturers are really pushing innovation in the smartphone industry. Ever since Xiaomi experimented with a near-bezel-less design on the Mi Mix, OEMs have continued to intensify efforts to further cut down on the degree of bezels available on smartphones. However, none is yet able to achieve a totally bezel-less smartphone but DOOGEE seems to have achieved that in its upcoming DOOGEE Mix 4.
DOOGEE Mix 4 first popped up online in some leaked renders a couple of months back which showed it will adopt a bezel-less design. That has now been confirmed by the hands-on/unboxing video of the Mix 4 which was spotted on the YouTube channel Mrwhosetheboss. No, the DOOGEE Mix 4 is yet to be launched and the YouTuber indicated that this is a prototype copy apparently sent by DOOGEE in its bid to commence promotional activities for the device before mass production is achieved.
The DOOGEE Mix 4 features a 5.99-inch AMOLED display and basically no bezel around the entire display. Well, that isn’t entirely correct. There are tiny bezels running around the display but it has a 97% screen ratio which is pretty high. DOOGEE had to sacrifice the front camera in order to achieve this awesome design.Thus, the device utilises a slide design whereby the display slides down exposing the selfie camera behind. The device seems to pack a dual selfie camera setup. At the back, there is a dual camera setup arranged vertically with a LED flash beneath the cameras. The Mix 4 also packs the in-display fingerprint sensor and the capacitive volume rockers, as well as the power button, is located on the right side.
We are yet to lay our hands on the full specifications of the Mix 4 but that will not be too far away from us. With this design, we expect a flagship-grade hardware, the likes of Snapdragon 660 or Helio P60 at the helm of affairs. We’ll bring you more details as they unravel.For now, check out the DOOGEE Mix 4 cute design in the unboxing video below.
