Back in June at Lenovo Tech World, the company unveiled the Phab 2 Pro which is the first smartphone to use Google's Tango platform. Tango, formerly Project Tango, is full of augmented reality features, and on stage in San Francisco, Lenovo showed off many different use-cases for the device. The most popular one was with Lowe's, and how you could use the Phab 2 Pro to see how new appliances and such would look in your home, before going to the store and buying them.
When it comes to specs, Lenovo packed in plenty of high-end specs here. There's a massive 6.4-inch 2560×1440 resolution display, along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor which has been designed specifically to work with Tango. That SoC is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is also a 4050mAh battery inside, which should keep it running all day long without any issues. We're also looking at a 16-megapixel sensor on the back and a 8-megapixel front-facing shooter. The smartphone is a pretty large one, with a 6.4-inch display, and without minimal bezels like Xiaomi's recently announced Mi MIX smartphone. It weighs in at about 259 grams, and that is also because the device is sporting an aluminum unibody.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is finally available, after being delayed for a few months. Lenovo put the device on sale today on its website for $499. Given all of the specs that the Phab 2 Pro sports, that's a pretty impressive price point, even without all of the Tango features. There's no mention of it being available at Lowe's just yet, even though they were announced as a retail partner earlier this year. If you're interested in the Phab 2 Pro, you can order it from Lenovo's website now. It's slated to ship in about 4 to 5 weeks. Currently, there is only one model available, however more may follow in the coming weeks. It's a great looking smartphone and definitely worth picking up if you are interested in what Tango has to offer. Not to mention that it is sporting some of the most high-end specs available – besides the processor, which again was made specifically to work with Tango.
