During the Lenovo Tech World 2016, Lenovo took the wraps of their new Phab 2 portfolio, consisting of three new models- the Phab2, the Phab2 Plus, and the Phab2 Pro smartphone. The Phab2 Pro is the world’s first commercial device to sport Google’s Project Tango technology with multiple cameras and sensors.

Project Tango brings Augmented Reality on smartphones, and so the Phab2 device does the same. Lenovo demonstrated different uses of AR for other applications such as helping in designing the interiors of a home, turn your room into a playground, explore information regarding historical topics such as dinosaurs etc. The applications and possibilities are endless.

Unlike the original Tango concept, the Lenovo Phab2 Pro features a 6.4-inch IPS screen with QHD resolution. Apart from the presence of the 8MP front camera/16MP main camera combo, the device houses a motion tracking camera, and another depth sensing camera on the rear. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 652 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. The device holds a Dolby Atmos certified speaker, a fingerprint scanner, and a large 4050 mAh battery.

The other two smartphones called the Phab2, and the Phab2 Plus are just normal smartphones, also sporting 6.4-inch screens. However, the resolution differs as the Phab2 holds a 720p IPS, whereas the Phab2 Plus holds a 1080p IPS screen. The Phab2 comes with the quad-core MediaTek 8735 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory, and a 13MP camera. The Phab2 Plus comes with a faster quad-core MediaTek 8783, and a dual-camera setup with laser AF. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the Phab2 Plus.

The local availability and pricing of the Phab2 smartphones are yet to be known. Check out the video of the Phab2 Pro AR below:
