You do not always have a name in the high-tech sector is a guarantee of success. Think of Amazon and the story of his first (and probably only) smartphone: the terminal was only sold in the US and, while being based on Android, the customization of the OS has “penalized” the device making unfamiliar even to those who have always use the operating system of the green robot. But things are different in China, where applications and Google services are not as prevalent and Xiaomi (with its interface MIUI) is located at the top of the ranking of smartphone manufacturers.
On this market, in 2014, was the terminus Hammer Technologies with its smartphone Smartisan T1 with proprietary OS “Smartisan”. After one year, the Chinese company has launched the updated model, with best technical specifications and a sophisticated design.
Smartisan T2 is equipped with a display of 4.95 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, 3GB of RAM and 16-32GB storage. E ‘it equipped with a module WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and supports networks 4G / LTE Chinese. On board there is a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front, in addition to a non-removable battery of 2670 mAh. Smartisan T2 has a unibody aluminum chassis and, unlike other smartphone of the latest generation, back buttons below the display.
But what makes this different from the usual terminal is its operating system. Smartisan OS has tile-based user interface, a host of new features and custom applications, including self-organization of the icons by color, date and other criteria, app “teleservice” that allows a friend, family member or friend take control of your smartphone to provide remote support, video editors and gif, option for large print, screen-recording tool, various improvements in voice search.
Smartisan T2 is on sale in China at a price of 2,499 yuan (about 350 Euros). It is unclear whether the smartphone will never be distributed in the United States, but according to the latest statements Hammer Technologies seems interested in the American market (at least for some of its terminals).
