Xiaomi has unveiled the company’s Redmi Note 2 (Prime) handset (and MIUI 7), while Samsung has unveiled their Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ phablets. That being said, these two companies aren’t the only ones who had something to announce. Lenovo has thrown out a new device out to the market as well, a Lenovo Phab Plus phablet. Let’s check out what this phablet has to offer, shall we.
The Lenovo Phab Plus is a 6.8-inch phablet, and it sports a fullHD (1920 x 1080) display with Oleophobic coating on top of it.

The device also features 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). The 4G LTE connectivity is also available here, and this phablet offers two SIM card slots as well. The 13-megapixel camera (OmniVision’s sensor) is available on the back of the Phab Plus (+dual-LED, dual tone flash), and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. The Dolby Atmos tech is also present here, and the device will ship with a 3,500mAh battery on the inside. Lenovo’s newest phablet is only 7.6mm thick, and weighs in at 220 grams.
