I don't think that u will get your contact back after factory reset(thinking)
1 thing you can do is sign in to google account in new device and sync your contact it will restore your google account contact my advise is to always save contact in google account rather than in device

Actually, it is possible to get your contacts back even after factory reset. You'd better seek help from professional data recovery tool asap. An Android recovery tool, Gihosoft, is highly recommended.
