Lenovo is all set to swoon away the smartphone users with its new launch of PHAB 2 Pro. The new handset by the Chinese manufacturer is bestowed with the reputation of being the first smartphone with enablement of Google Tango technology.
The official release of the phone for the Indian markets was made on Thursday and as per the announcement Flipkart will be exclusive retail partner of this new model. The e-commerce giant will initiate the online sale of the phone with a price tag of INR 29,990, which is far lower than $499 (INR 34,020 approx.), at which it was sold in USA. It will be available in Champagne Gold colour.
The first and foremost peculiarity of the Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro is its Google Tango capability. Tango is developed by Google for enhancement of Augmented Reality (AR) experience through utilities and games. The tango can be used for indoor mapping, for measuring objects and re-imagining them with your surroundings in 3D, for thrill of gaming and as a window to one’s fantasies.
Talking about the appearance of the phone, the first thing that catches the eye is its gigantism. The 259 gram device with dimensions of 179.8x88.5x10.7 mm, have a 6.4-inch Quad HD IPS display (1440x2560 pixels). It packs four cameras for the ultimate imaging. A 16 MP rear RGB shooter with PDAF and HDR, a 8 MP front-facing snapper with f/2.2 aperture and 1.4 micron pixel size, a motion-tracking camera and an infrared, depth-sensing camera with imager and emitter.
It runs on Android OS v6.0 Marshmallow and houses a 4050 mAh battery, which promises 15-hour longevity. An octa-core 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC, built for Tango, paired with Adreno 510 GPU powers the device, while 4 GB RAM/ 64 GB in-built space (expandable up to 128 GB) provide very decent storage options. It has Dolby Audio Capture 5.1 for 3D Surround Sound along with Dolby Atmos Audio Enhancement and Active Noise Cancellation. Some other specs of the PHAB 2 Pro include - fingerprint sensor (rear mounted), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, microUSB 2.0, 3.5 mm jack, dual-SIM slots (for nano SIMs), triple-array microphones and NFC, etc.
