As I asserted earlier, the design places this smartphone in a better category than the mid-range sector its specs put it in. Starting out with is body material, Nut Pro 2 has a stunning metal and glass build, and the glass appears on both sides of the smartphone. The bezel-less beauty would have been expected given its trendy nature, instead, it has bezels that aren’t very thick. The top bezel, as usual houses the front camera at the centre while the earpiece lies in between the metal frame and the glass. The physical keys on the smartphone are present on the conventional right side but have a different appearnace. Unlike the bar nature of the physical keys which we do see in smartphones, the physical keys on this smartphon are in form of rounded buttons. The bottom bezel has no occupants whatsoever.

The rear of the smartphone designed with glass occupies the dual camera setup at the top left portion. The first camera is larger and protrudes outside the smartphone’s surface while the second camera and the LED flash lay even with the rear surface. The fingerprint sensor is almost unnoticeable as it is positioned beneath the smartisan logo at the rear’s centre. To wrap it all, a thin line goes round the smartphone’s frame. On the black variant of the smartphone, the line is red while on the red and champagne variants, the line is gold.

Its 5.99 inches full-view FHD+ display has the bliss of 403 PPI pixel density and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Its in-cell touch display has the Corning Gorilla Glass to act as the defender when it falls from high places. It has a massive 82% screen-to-body ratio and 1500:1 contrast ratio.


It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 MSM8976 Plus which envelopes the Octa-core 2.2GHz Kryo CPU. This 64-bit CPU optimizes the 14nm process technology. Qualcomm Adreno 512 is what handles the graphics functions on the smartphone. Smartisan 4.0 OS is the software running on the smartphone. In the storage section, there are five variants which are:

  • 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM
