During the Lenovo Tech World that took place in San Francisco in June, the Chinese company revealed the Phab 2 Pro which is actually the first handset to be based on the Google Tango platform. The platform is also known as Project Tango and it basically consists of augment reality functions, and the officials showcased how the smartphone owners could make use of those features.
In terms of hardware specifications, the terminal comes with a plethora of premium specs. For instance, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro sports a QHD display that has a diagonal of 6.4 inches and a resolution of 2560 x 1440. Moreover, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 652 SoC that is meant to be compatible with Tango. Memory-wise, it flaunts 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The battery capacity is rather large as the smartphone packs a 4,050 mAh cell, which should be more than enough to get you through the day.
When it comes to optics, it boats a 16 MP main shooter on the back side, while on the front there is an 8 MP camera. The overall size of the terminal is pretty huge as apart from the fact that it has a large display, it also comes with bezels, unlike the Xiaomi Mi Mix, which was unveiled a few days ago. It has a total weight of 259 grams, and this is also due to the fact that the handset is made out of aluminum.
Anyway, the Phab 2 Pro, even though it was announced in June, was made available for purchase just now for some reason, and it can be found listed on the company's official website in exchange for $499. Just looking at the specifications, we can say that this a pretty good price even if it hadn't included the Tango features. The device is scheduled for shipping in about a month or so, and for now it's only available in one version, but there will be more in the near future. In terms of design, it looks very slick, and it does include high-end specs apart from the SoC, but this is nothing to be blamed because it was produced with the intention to work with Tango.
