The Lenovo PHAB2 Pro was first announced at the Lenovo Tech World 2016 conference in early June. The PHAB2 Pro happens to be the world's first 'Tango' (originally dubbed 'Project Tango') smartphone and was scheduled to hit the market by this Summer but it seems like that won't be happening as the arrival of Tango's first smartphone to the market has been delayed.
Instead of it being launched in Summer, the launch date in countries has been pushed to Fall, with no specific date in sight. On top of that, the Chinese company won't be making the PHAB2 Pro available in some countries, which were originally under consideration for a release. This is due to the fact that Lenovo wants to focus on countries where it already has a solid presence in, such as Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia. The PHAB2 Pro will be launched in those countries as early as next month. However, the device will not be making its way to Australia as previously planned. On Lenovo's US online store, the release tag has been changed from "Summer" to "Fall".
For those who would like a recap on the specs of the PHAB2 Pro, read on. The PHAB2 Pro comes with a large 6.4-inch Quad-HD display, built with 2.5D glass, and the device is powered by a Snapdragon 652 System-on-Chip and an Adreno 510 to handle graphics. Under the hood, it packs 4GB of RAM mated to 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. As for optics, the PHAB2 Pro sports a 16-megapixel Fast-Focus sensor on the rear with phase detection autofocus, Depth Sensor for Tango, and Motion Tracking Sensor for Tango, while the front sports an 8-megapixel sensor. The 4050mAh battery is in charge of keeping the lights on, and it supports fast charging. For software, it comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. This dual-SIM device also packs a fingerprint scanner on its rear and comes with a range of connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, and WiFi 802.11ac. The PHAB2 Pro carries a retail tag of $499.
