It has been a while since we heard of Smartisan. This Chinese smartphone manufacturer is not as well known as Xiaomi or Huawei, not even in China. They also have fewer devices launched compared to other manufacturers. That does not mean that their devices are bad, quite the contrary if we are to look at their latest smartphones: the Smartisan Nut Pro 3. The device is a true flagship and Smartisan hopes to steal a piece of the smartphone market share away from Xiaomi, Huawei and Oppo.
The new Smartisan Nut Pro 3 comes with the latest Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128Gb or 256GB of storage. the lower-end module has UFS2.1 storage while the higher-end module comes with UFS3.0, which increases performance as well. It has a 6.39″ FullHD+ AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint reader that can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. The device also promises to take great photos thanks to its quad-camera setup. The Smartisan Nut 3 Pro has a 48MP main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera, an 8MP telephoto lens and a 5MP macro camera. On the front, you will get a 20MP selfie camera.
On the software side, the phone comes with Smartisan OS 7, a customized version of Android. The operating system has a few enhancements, like DC dimming for the display, full screen gestures, dual WiFi Routing and multitasking cards. In the videos below you can see the UI in action.
The 8GB+128GB model of the Smartisan Nut Pro 3 will be sold in China for 2699 Yuan (approximately $385) and the 12GB+256GB is 3399 yuan (approximately $485). Sadly, the chances of ggetting one outside of China are very slim.
