The Nut R1 is the latest smartphone from Smartisan, a Chinese brand. The highlight of the phone is the 1TB of optional storage and this apparently makes it is the first smartphone to come with 1TB. That apart the Nut R1 sports a bezel-less display and thankfully the notch (rather a horizontal strip) doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Adding to the novelties is an AI-based virtual ultrasound proximity sensor which replaces the standard proximity sensor.
