What can the thermal camera offer?

The thermal camera of the Doogee S98 Pro promises to display and measure temperatures in real time while capturing a moment.

Combined with a higher frame rate of 25Hz, it delivers smoother images to help accurately detect drafts, humidity, leaks, electrical shorts, blockages, or high temperatures .


The dual-spectrum blending algorithm can incorporate details such as contour and texture captured by the 48 MP visible light camera into the thermal image, greatly improving the resolution of the actual scene and target, while fully preserving the original infrared image.
