The first smartphone under the Google’s Project Tango, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is reportedly been certified by the Chinese benchmark agency, TENAA. The smartphone was announced earlier this year and reported to come with three rear-facing camera. The point of Tango is to have an AR experience that ‘disappears’ into the background, isn’t obvious but is useful and helps you do stuff easier and better.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro uses the motion tracking and the depth sensing cameras to learn areas, so it can recognize places (say, rooms) in which it’s been before. It’s able to map physical spaces, it can track objects, and it can project virtual effects in what is a real-world space. It can help you navigate indoor places or provide contextual information about the objects it’s seeing.
The phone will come in an all uni-metallic body that will be to available in gold or silver color options. It features a 6.4-inch Q-HD (Quad-HD) IPS touchscreen with 1440 x 2560 resolution, and no less than four cameras. There’s an 8 mega-pixel selfie camera on the front, a 16 mega-pixel main camera on the rear, as well as a depth camera and a motion tracking camera – also on the back.
The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a fingerprint scanner. The Phab 2 Pro is backed with a beefy 4,050 mAh battery and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 chipset that comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. It can record sound in 5.1 surround thanks to Dolby Atmos technology. The Phab 2 Pro will be offered in Gunmetal Gray and Champagne Gold. It is a bit thick at 11.15 mm and will be backed with a 4,050 mAh battery.
The Phab 2 Pro will be available in the U.S. this September and will be priced at $499 (approx INR 33,500), and we expect to see a similar price and release month for the device in China.
