A Chinese startup Smartisan has unveiled its first smartphone, the Smartisan T1 and runs on Android-based Smartisan OS, but the most important part of the story is its design as it has been designed by the former Apple design engineer.
The Smartisan T1 runs on a Android-based custom ROM firmware called the Smatisan OS 1.0. The device features a unique user interface with apps tiles and less crowding of apps. The smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm 801 quad-core processor with 2Gb of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU. The device will be available in 16GB and 32GB variants.
The Smartisan T1 will have the Sony Exmore RS CMOS 12.78 MP primary camera and a 5MP camera in the front. The primary camera is capable of recording HD videos at 1080p at 30 FPS while the secondary camera records at 720p at 30 FPS. The T1 has an impressive 4.95-inch HD display with 1920 x 1080 p resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The T1 will also provide an impressive audio experience as the device is fitted with OPA2604 Operational Amplifier Chip from Texas Instruments, as mentioned by Smartisan’s founder Luo Yong Hao.
The phone bears a resemblance to iPhone as it was designed by Ex Apple designer Robert Brunner. The deice will be priced at 3000 yuan ($481) for the 16GB model and 3150 yuan ($ 505) for the 32GB model. The LTE-enabled models will be released later. Users can expect more updates for the new Smartisan OS as it was released only in April and was tested in a few Samsung smartphones. However it is not sure if the company plans to bring the T1 into international markets.
