A few months after the Chinese Internet technology company, ByteDance, revealed its plans to expand its product portfolio by introducing its first-ever smartphone, the day has finally come when the phone has been made official in China. The phone, called Smartisan Jianguo Pro 3, is a combined effort of ByteDance and another Chinese multinational technology company, Smartisan.
To give you some background, ByteDance is a popular Chinese technology company that acquired musical.ly and combined it with TikTok, which is now the fastest growing social app. As of earlier this year, the company had around 800 million daily active users, with an overall valuation of approximately $78 billion.

The Jianguo Pro 3 (or Nut Pro 3 when translated) features a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with a 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, 403ppi pixel density, and 100000:1 contrast ratio. It comes in three color options: Black, White, and Green, with the Green color reserved for the high-end variant.
Smartisan Jianguo Pro 3: Performance
At its core, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 855+ processor with Adreno 640 GPU, paired with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB (UFS 2.1) or 256GB (UFS 3.0) of internal storage. To power everything, it includes a 4000mAh battery with support for 18W Quick Charge 4. As for other hardware specifications, the phone comes with 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, USB Type-C, and Wi-Fi Direct.
On the software front, the Jianguo Pro 3 runs on Smartisan OS 7. However, as of now, we are not sure which version of the Android OS it is based on. Since the phone is associated with TikTok, the company has included a bunch of software features and integrations. One of these features allows users to directly access the TikTok app on the lock screen with a swipe.
