Whether you use it or don’t, you can’t look down on the unprecedented growth of Tiktok. ByteDance, which is its parent company has introduced a new smartphone christened Smartisan Jianguo Pro 3. Yes, it’s released under Smartisan, a brand that has a symbiotic relation with Tiktok’s owner. Back in May this year, ByteDance had snagged a bunch of patents and tech talent from Smartisan. So, months later, here we are with a phone running Snapdragon 855+ chipset.

The app has undergone public backlash and ban in India for its type of content. Anyhow, for the moment its launched in its home market only.
