Lenovo has just announced a 6.4-inch smartphone with Google Tango called “Lenovo Phab 2 Pro”. What sets this phone apart from others is that it comes with world’s first AR (augmented reality) tech, allowing you to measure and use things in the environment in 3D. For example, you would be able to measure size of all the furniture in your room using its own depth camera. This is definitely one of the most exciting Android smartphones to come out this year.
As for camera, the Phab 2 Pro comes with a whopping 3 cameras in the back (16MP main camera w/ wide-angle mode, depth-sensing camera, and motion tracking camera) and an 8MP front camera.
Battery capacity is also at an amazing 4,050mAh along with Quick Charge 2.0 support. With a massive 6.4-inch QuadHD display, the 4,050mAh battery should still be plenty to go for a full day.
Pricing will start at $599 for the Phab 2 Pro and price seems to be right on. There’s no word on whether this will be available through U.S. carriers yet but based on Lenovo’s current presence in the U.S., it’s most unlikely. But they should be selling unlocked versions you can use with GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile.
At 259 grams, the Phab 2 Pro isn’t for those of you who want a lightweight phone. In fact, the Phab 2 Pro is nearly more than 50% heavier than the Note 5 which weight 171 grams. And at 6.4-inches, this is definitely going to be in the higher range of phablet phones or perhaps its own class of heavyweight class smartphones. But for those who love phablets and want to carry one smartphone that doubles as a mini tablet, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro could prove to be perfect.
We should have a hands-on unboxing and review of this bad boy but what do you think? Too heavy or not?
