The IF Geekpark Innovation Conference is an annual event held in China. This year’s edition which began on Friday and ended today had a number of guests who are leaders in the tech industry. Amongst them is the CEO of Smartisan Luo Yonghao, who revealed an early info about their plans for 2018.
According to Mr. Yonghao, Smartisan has an event scheduled for May 15, 2018 at the beijing national Stadium which is also known as the “Bird’s Nest” thanks to its design.
While the event is still a good four months away, the CEO says the event is for the launch of a revolutionary product. This revolutionary product, according to him, will affect other products released in the next 8 to 10 years.
Earlier this month, a new Smartisan phone with model number OC106 was certified by the Chinese Communications Commission. Some say this might be the device launching in May but under the name Smartisan T3.
Much is not known about the device, however, this will most likely be their flagship of the year. We may also see the phone launch with a Snapdragon 845 processor according to this tweet from leaker @mmddj_.
Even Smartisan got SD845…

Last year, Smartisan deviated from its usual tradition of releasing a phone with a flagship processor. Instead, it settled for the mid-range Snapdragon 625, 626, and 660 processors. Fans of the brand will surely be excited to see them return to offering high-end flagships.
