Smartisan is known for the innovative design of its smartphones. Too bad the company’s smartphones are not readily available outside China. Even when they are available, you’ll have to deal with the bloatware on the operating system.
However, we’ll give it to Smartisan for the innovativeness of its smartphones designs, the latest being the midrange Nut 3 which has a flagship-grade design. Smartisan is also expected to release a flagship smartphone which is believed to be dubbed Smartisan R1. The R1 recently received certification from China’s CCC.
Until now, the specs of the device is still unknown but Smartisan may have just confirmed that the flagship device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset. Smartisan reposted a Weibo post by Qualcomm which projects the Snapdragon 845 features.
We are not entirely sure about that, though, but there is basically no reason to project the Qualcomm latest chipset if it wasn’t trying to tease the present of the chip on its upcoming smartphone. Smartisan had on a few occasions in the past surprised us by using Qualcomm’s flagship processor on a couple of its flagship models.So, it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise if the device launched packing an SD845. We expect a bigger surprise on the design aspect.
