Smartisan stunned the tech industry last week when it launched the Snapdragon 660-powered Nut Pro 2 premium mid-range smartphone with a rather cheap price tag. The Smartisan Nut Pro 2 has already been shown in a series of hands-on photos that showcase the outward beauty. Also, we have seen the camera samples of the model which points at a great camera setup. Now, the Nut Pro 2 has been given the teardown treatment, showing the entire design of the internals.
Disassemble photos or videos are not intended to be repair guides even though it can be used to grab an idea of how to open the smartphone in a bid to change a faulty battery or other parts. The Nut Pro 2 like most smartphones come with a non-removable battery and thus, the glass panel at the back is sealed with glue. The service of a heat gun is employed to slightly soften the gum, thereafter a suction cup is used to separate the glass back from the metal fuselage and then you can separate all parts using a pry tool. Removing the back cover reveals the battery and other internals. You can check out photos of the entire process from below.
Just to refresh your memory, the Smartisan Nut Pro 2 features a 5.99-inch in-cell display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 x 1080 resolution. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s latest premium mid-range Snapdragon 660 SoC and there are up to five memory variants. You get a 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant, 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM, and 6GB RAM + 256GB ROM variant. Camera wise, a 16MP F/2.2 camera sits at the front, while at the rear there is a dual camera setup which has a 12MP Sony IMX386 primary sensor with 1.25um wide-angle sensor, f1.8 aperture and PDAF. It teams up with a 5MP Samsung S5K4E8 1.4um secondary sensor with f2.0 aperture. The secondary camera is a depth of field sensor which utilises the ArcSoft dual camera bokeh technology.
In addition, there is a 3500mAh battery under the sleek body with fast charging technology. The phone is also a dual SIM phone and has the USB Type-C port and NFC on the high-end variant. There is no 3.5mm audio jack but inside the packaging box, you’ll get a 3.5mm to USB-C adapter.
