You cannot escape how disappointing that latest Phablet from Samsung the Galaxy Note 7 has been, it showed so much promise and Note users were looking so much to getting their hands on the new device. Now they have a problem, do they stay with what they have, switch to a regular smartphone or look around for something else! I suspect that they might be looking around for something different, something like the new Phab 2 Pro from Lenovo, maybe! This is a stunning device with a huge 6.4 inch screen and enough power to satisfy any user, without the need to walk around with a bucket of water to drop to device into should it start to overheat!
The Phab 2 Pro is the world’s first smartphone to include Tango—a new technology from Google that enables augmented reality (AR) gaming and utilities. All you have to do is look through the Phab 2 Pro, and you’ll see objects and information overlaid onto the real world.
This is what the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has to offer, a 6.4 inch QHD (1440 x 2560) assertive display that can adapt to variable light conditions such as sunlight or reflections. The Phab2 has a 16 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front camera. Dolby Atmos 5.1 Audio Capture with 3 mics, 360 voice and noise cancelling functions. There is a 4050 mAh battery with 2.4 x turbo charging feature. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor that has been optimized for Tango. Storage is made up by 64 GB of ROM and 4 GB of RAM. All housed in a 8.9 mm aluminum unibody with a fingerprint scanner on the back and 2.5D curved glass, available in Champagne Gold or Gunmetal Grey.
You can measure objects with just your phone. Or visualize furniture like a new table or sofa to see how it looks in your home. Or simply play with your virtual pet. Wherever you go with the Phab 2 Pro, there’s always more to explore.
So, there you have it, this is the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, it is a worthy replacement for other large smartphone devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Sure it does not come with the Samsung pedigree but does that really mean anything these days? Lenovo are saying that the Phab 2 Pro will be going on sale later on in the year with a retail price of around $499, that puts it firmly in the ball park for anyone that is looking for a big phone or somebody who has been very disappointed at the outcome of the Note 7 from Samsung and the fact that it could be a long time before its replacement launches, this could be a chance for Lenovo to grab a larger piece of the Phablet action!
