Yesterday, Hammer Technology launched a revolutionary smartphone at the conference held in the Bird’s Nest. It’s dubbed the Smartisan R1, but as Hamming Technology CEO Luo Yonghao revealed, in the future, all their phones will carry the name of Nut regardless of the category of the phone. So this phone is also named the Smartisan Nut R1. There are many amazing features making this handset a true top-notch model. But its selling point should be the 1TB UFS2.1 storage option. This, we are dealing with the world’s first 1TB storage phone powered by a Snapdragon 845.
Anyway, the Smartisan R1 sports a 6.17-inch full-screen with a resolution of 2242×1080 pixels, an aspect ratio of 18.7:9, and a contrast ratio of 1500:1. It belongs to the phones group with a notch on the upper side of the screen. But unlike the iPhone X and other handsets like it, this one has a design identical to the Sharp Aquos series.
