Doogee BL12000 Pro is a battery-heavy smartphone that raises the bar higher on what the BL5000 and BL7000 smartphones offered. The device, which seems intent in rivaling the likes of the Gionee S11, not only features a very high capacity juicer, but also provides a whopping four cameras.

Design and Display
The appearance of the Doogee BL12000 Pro is pretty impressive. The design features metal and glass. We can see in this smartphone an attempt to reproduce something we have seen on some rival device. It sports a reflective rear that somewhat brings a device such as the Gionee S11 to mind. But this is one thick and heavy device at 14 mm and 300 g respectively, mainly as a result of the huge battery.
As for the display, the Doogee BL12000 Pro features a colossal 6-inch IPS panel with Full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels. This has an aspect ratio of 18:9 for better viewing experience.
The Doogee BL12000 Pro is a camera-focused phone that offers you not only dual rear cameras, but also dual selfie cameras. It packs a 16MP sensor and a 13MP sensor on the rear. Camera features include dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, and HDR.
You get another 16MP and 8MP sensor combo on the front. The selfie setup offers an amazing 130-degree wide-angle lens that enables you take more people into your shots. There is LED flash to brighten your selfies.
Hardware and Other Features
Looking at the configuration, it is safe to say the Doogee BL12000 Pro is ready for serious business. Compared to the Doogee BL12000, it comes with an upgraded octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 chipset that uses 16nm technology. This runs along at speeds up to 2.5 GHz. The 64-bit processor pairs with an ARM Mali-G71 MP2 and 6GB DDR4 RAM.
Onboard storage is 64 GB or 128 GB, depending on model, and is expandable. The Doogee BL12000 Pro boots Android 7.0 Nougat OS. It offers a fingerprint scanner for unlocking and security.
The unique selling proposition of the Doogee BL12000 Pro is arguably its humongous 12,000 mAh Li-Polymer battery. Doogee achieved this by combining two 6,000 mAh units. The juicer promises nearly 4-day runtime, or so they say. There is also fast charging support.
