As we learned earlier this year, ByteDance acquired a bunch of Smartisan patents and talent. ByteDance then helped make the Jianguo Pro 3 and packed it with branded features. Apparently, it didn’t decide to change the naming scheme, Engadget reported on Friday quoting Abacus News.

The new device lets users access Douyin — the Chinese version of TikTok — just by swiping up on the lock screen.

Meanwhile, the Nut Pro 3 smartphone runs Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855+ chipset, and has four rear sensors, including a 48MP camera and is powered by a 4,000mAh battery.

The smartphone has up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
