A week after the official announcement, Smartisan Nut Pro 2S is going to debut in the Chinese market. The new camera-centric upper-midrange phone will be officially available to purchase from tomorrow (on August 28) at 10:00 am local time in China. Its price tag will start from just 1798 Yuan for the base variant with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, which roughly translates into about $263. The intermediate version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM will be available for 1998 Yuan (that is equivalent to about $293) and the most advanced one with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM will cost 2298 Yuan (about $337).
Given the qualities that Smartisan Nut Pro 2S offers, there is not a lot to complain about the official pricing. This is the first device from a non-mainstream Chinese brand to enter the top 15 best camera phones by DxOMark, which indicates a great camera performance. The device is equipped with a dual camera setup on its back with resolutions of 12 and 5 MP. The primary sensor of the dual camera is the known Sony IMX363 with a size of 1.4 um, while the selfie snapper has a resolution of 16 MP. The new handset retains the very original and beautiful design of its predecessor, even though there is to say that its upper and lower bezels around the display are not so narrow.
It has a reflective glass back and a symmetric front panel with the front-facing camera placed just in the middle. The display has a diagonal of 6.01 inches and it shows images at a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, with the 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it carries the new octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset: the first and only one from the Snapdragon 700 series. Smartisan Nut Pro 2S has a battery with a 3600 mAh capacity which supports fast charging at 18W.
