DooGee Dagger DG550, $166.66 octacore on sale now internationally!-86DIGI

Just a few months ago a relatively unknown phone maker began to ship produce smartphones specifically aimed at international phone customers. That small company now sponsors a Spanish football team and as one of the most affordable octacore phones on the planet! I am of course talking about Doogee, and their new phone the Doogee Dagger DGG550.

From the press renders and images we have been shown, the Dagger DG550 looks like a larger version of the very popular iNew V3. The body is slim and stylish while the 5.5-inch panel gives your eyes more to look at.

Under the hood is a 1.7Ghz Mediatek MT6592 processor, the same SoC as found in the majority of octacore Chinese phones, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, and dual sim supper for GSM and WCDMA (850/2100mhz networks).

Doogee are working with reseller Banggood to sell their phones around the world. Interestingly Banggood are listing the DooGee Dagger with a 2600mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat, something which we have contacted them about to confirm.
