The Smartisan T1 successor has been announced in China and the company is touting the premium look of the device. The T2 has a metal build rather than plastic, and Smartisan is touting the 588 days of research and development that it took to produce the finished article. It features 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 on both the front and rear of the handset, but still we have to say that the design looks pretty basic in the images we’ve seen so far.

It’s also equipped with a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
