After being out of the picture for almost a year, Smartisan is back with a high-end smartphone dubbed Smartisan Nut Pro 3. The smartphone is equipped with the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, a large 4000 mAh battery and a 48 MP quad-sensor camera.

Design and Display

Smartisan smartphones have always stood out when it comes to aesthetics. The Smartisan Nut Pro 3 does not deviate from the Company’s basic design elements but does come with a few added features.

At the back, the quad-sensor rear camera is housed on a rectangular bump, which unsurprisingly looks fresh and different. The black bump breaks the monotony of a single-toned matte finish back. It comes in three color variants: Green, Black, and White. The white one has a slightly different design. Instead of a wide rectangular bump, it has a thin rectangular aisle that houses three camera sensors. The fourth sensor sits beside the aisle on top of a pill-shaped LED flash.

Smartisan Nut Pro 3 is built around a 6.39-inch AMOLED waterdrop notch display. The fingerprint sensor is housed under the display. This is the first Smartisan smartphone that features a differently shaped screen. The display features a wide color gamut and goes down to 2 nits ultra-low brightness.

Internal and Storage

As for the innards, the smartphone comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ processor at the helm topped with 8 GB or 12 GB RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB onboard storage.

On the software front, the phone runs on Smartisan UI 7.0 skinned Android 9, the biggest highlight of this handset. The OS comes with a lot of new features including Bing Bang 3.0, One Step 2.0, and Idea Pills 2.0.


At the back, as mentioned, the smartphone features a quad-sensor camera with a Sony IMX586 48MP f/1.75 main sensor, 13MP 1.12um ultrawide angle sensor with a 123° FOV, an 8MP telephoto sensor, and a 5MP 2cm macro sensor.

The camera is backed by Smartisan’s algorithm to intelligently corrects distortion when the ultra-wide sensor is in use.

For selfies, the Nut Pro 3 is equipped with a 20 MP Samsung sensor, sitting behind an f/2.0 aperture lens.
