Review: Lenovo Phab2 Pro Specifications, the Phone that brings Project Tango to Life

Lenovo has just unveiled three new devices, the Phab2, Phab2 Plus and Phab2 Pro at the Lenovo Tech World 2016 on June 9.

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro, which is the first smartphone in the world to bring Tango - Google’s Project Tango that enables augmented reality (AR) solution to life. All you have to do is look through the Phab 2 Pro, and you'll see objects and information overlaid onto the real world.

You can measure objects with just your phone. Or visualize furniture like a new table or sofa to see how it looks in your home. Or simply play with your virtual pet. Wherever you go with the Phab 2 Pro, there's always more to explore.

This is the highest-end Phab2 phablet Lenovo has introduced today, and also the only Tango-enabled Phab2 device Lenovo has announced. New AR (Augmented Reality) devices have been rumored for quite some time now, and Lenovo has finally unveiled one such device, a phablet alternative to the Tango dev tablet that has been available for quite some time now directly from Google. That being said, let’s get started. Here is a closer look at the Phab2 Pro specifications. 

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro features a 6.4-inch display, just like its siblings, but this display comes with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. 

We are looking at an IPS Assertive Display here which has a 2.5D curved glass layer on it. The device is made out of 8.9mm aluminum unibody, and Fingerprint scanner (rear side).

The Phab2 Pro is fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core processor which is built for Tango apps.

The 16-megapixel PDAF Fast-Focus camera is available on the back of this device, along with two sensors for Tango, a Depth Sensor and a Motion Tracking Sensor. The phone comes with an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper (f/2.2 aperture, 1.4um pixel size).

It packs in a 4,050mAh battery on the inside (+fast charging). The battery can keep the phone alive for over 13 days on standby, says Lenovo, and it will last you about 18 hours of talk time. 

There are two SIM card slots available here (2 x nano SIM), and you can use one of those to insert an SD card (up to 128GB) in case you’d like to expand storage on this device. Speaking of which, the phone comes with 64GB of native storage, and also ships with 4GB of RAM. 

Phab2 Pro also includes triple array microphones with active noise-cancellation, Dolby Audio and Dolby Audio Capture 5.1. Much like its siblings, the Phab2 Pro offers support for a wide range of LTE bands, and such support will depend on where you purchase this phablet. 

Phab2 Pro comes in two distinct colors; Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey.

The Phab2 Pro costs $499 during the launch says Lenovo. The phone will be available globally this September and will reach the US before the end of the year.
