Smartisan Nut R1

Smartisan Nut R1 is now official, the company just released a much better and advanced version of the Nut 3 smartphone that was released weeks ago. The popular notched screen has finally found its way to Smartisan, but the company went for the Essential-like selfie notch.

The Nut R1 still sports the tri-bezel-less display, which the Nut series from Smartisan is known for. There’s a version of this smartphone with 8GB RAM and 1TB storage space that retails for over a thousand US dollars. Without further ado, lets see what the Smartisan Nut R1 has to offer.

The R1 has a full Metal unibody that’s non-removable, just as other smartphones from the Nut series. There’s a glass finishing as well, bringing out the beauty of the device as it reflects light beautifully. At the top left corner, we can see the LED flash starting a horizontal train with the dual shooters.

The Smartisan logo doubles as the fingerprint scanner here, for quick access to the device. The volume keys and power button sits by the right, while the SIM tray is by the left. It measures 7.9mm in thickness and weighs 170g overall, it’s available in only Black and White colors.

The Nut R1 still follows the tri-bezel-less trend which the Nut smartphones are known for. However, it’s obvious how the bottom bezel has been drastically reduced, while the screen stretches all the way to the top as usual, with a selfie cut-out notch.

The 6.17-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is quite a stunner, you get to enjoy all your videos and games with clarity.
