Hammer Technology is not living its best days. Last year, many smartphone users were thinking the Smartisan series smartphones will make a tough competition for the top brands in 2019. But until today, we haven’t heard about a new smartphone from this line. The last model coming our way from Hammer is considered to be the Smartisan Nut R1. Today, the company announced about a new price cut of 200 yuan ($29). Seems this is a little price off when compared with other models. But let’s take a look at this from another angle. Originally, the Nut R1 was priced at 3999 yuan ($580). Now, this phone costs 1999 yuan ($290). Thus, in a year, the phone got a price cut of 2000 yuan ($290).
The Smartisan Nut R1 is the flagship product launched by Hammer Technology in 2018 and is the most powerful smartphone of the company to date. It is packed with quite powerful hardware and provides outstanding performance.
Smartisan Nut R1 Features
As for the key features, the Smartisan Nut R1 uses a 6.17-inch In-cell screen with a resolution of 2242×1080 and an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and an LPDDR4X memory + UFS 2.1 flash memory combination. Its battery capacity is 3600mAh.
On the back, the Smartisan Nut R1 sports a 12MP+20MP dual-camera. The 12MP sensor is the Sony IMX363 with a unit pixel area of 1.4μm. This camera also supports Dual PD dual-core focus, ArcSoft professional blur algorithm and Qualcomm native noise drop algorithm, and optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization.
At present, we are still unable to determine whether Hammer Technology will update its smartphone products in the future or not. But it is worth noting that Zhu Haizhou, the product manager of Hammer Technology, has announced through Weibo that the new conference is coming. Luo Yonghao also confirmed that he would continue to make phones, but did not disclose any release time for the upcoming phones.
