According to the info provided by Caijing, this smartphone has been in development for seven months, reports Reuters. "This new mobile phone project is more of a continuation of the previous plan to meet the demand of the established Hammer mobile phone user base". ByteDance recently buys some of the Smartisan patents and also hire some members of it. Competition in the smartphone world is vast, there's no denying that, and many companies have already failed to make their mark, so it remains to be seen what will ByteDance do differently to appeal to consumers. These apps would include big names such as TikTok, Jinru Toutiao, and a music streaming service, which are already very popular in China.
This is supported by a report from Chinese financial news outlet Caijing, which revealed that the phone had been in development for almost seven months.

The phone made by Bytedance and Smartisan has been in development for at least seven months till now.
