Smartisan T2 announced with Snapdragon 808 costing from 2499 Yuan

Months of rumours and speculation came to an end this evening when the Smartisan T2 phone was finally officially revealed.

The Smartisan T2 was seen in so many leaks and teasers that pretty much everything that was finally announced today was already known by followers of the brands weeks if not months ago.

As we all expected the Smartisan T2 comes with glass panels front and rear with a elegant 2.5D curve carefully crafted to meet the alloy chassis on either side. The phone itself looks like a slightly better crafted Xiaomi Mi4.

Size wise the phone has a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display and is thick enough to have a 2670mAh battery inside, but the designers of the phone haven’t managed to make enough room inside the phone for anything more than a single SIM slot, however it is clever designed so the SIM tray is also the volume rocker.

More physical buttons are found on the very front of the phone in the chine area just like the original Smartisan T1 phone.

Under the smart looking glass and metal body Smartisan have opted for a Snapdragon 808 chipset with 3GB RAM. Camera hardware includes a 13 mega-pixel Sony Exmor RSTM main camera with F2.0 aperture while a front 5 mega-pixel camera sits up front.

Audio hardware is impressive too with separate left and right OPA1612 op-amp processors, which offer near Hi-Fi levels of audio through headphones.

As you can see from the photos the T2 comes with a heavily modified version of Android and is in fact Smartisan OS 2.5. If you haven’t used this system before and are looking to try the phone be ready for a very simplified Android experience.

Two versions of the phone will be available, a 16GB memory model for 2499 Yuan version while a 32GB Smartisan T2 will cost 2599 Yuan.

    riiight … $400 for a 808 phone JUST when the SD CPU series is being refreshed and newer phones with NEWER SoCs will see the light of the day instead of 808 and co.

    AND

    not to mention the fact that we have CHEAPER 808 phones available in the market (mi4c)

    Good luck selling this HONESTLY overpriced novelty !

      They always price their phones like vivo, as do Green Orange who along with Smartisan occupy a niche market with prices to match!

    Nice build quality and interesting audio section,but still not enough to justify the premium price.
    Unfortunately camera is average and it lacks of fingerprint scanner.

    Pass

    I couldn’t have waited anymore to see this launched… Now it’s finally over, at least for some months i won’t see other rumors about this damn, uninteresting thing…

    Really, smartisan with its fake premium-like gimmick is the most annoying company in the entire market (and that’s the market where works doogee… Just saying…)

    China is just flooding the market now with SD808 powered phones. QC must be dumping the chips to clear stock.

    Hey Andi, where can I buy it from? Do you think you’ll have a few units in your store?
