Lenovo has announced a new range of Phab devices – the Phab 2 and Phab 2 Plus that will be arriving at the US this summer. Both smartphones will sell for $199 and $299, respectively. And, they will hit global markets in September.
Along with new Phab devices, Lenovo made some exciting announcements at their Tech World Event – A 6.4-inch monster Phab 2 Pro, the first smartphone powered by Google’s Tango that incorporates Augmented Reality (AR), digital projection of lifelike images and data into a real-life environment.
Like the Phab Pro 2, these two affordable Phab devices don’t have Tango support. Both have 6.4-inch screens packed together with a metal unibody. The Phab 2 has a 720p IPS screen, quad-core MediaTek 8735 CPU paired with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card slot, a 13 MP camera, and a 5 MP front camera.
The Phab 2 Plus has a 1080p IPS display that gets a bump in processing to a quad-core MediaTek 8783 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage also expandable via microSD card slot. In terms of camera, the device gets a significant bump when compared to Phab 2.
The Plus variant gets dual 13 MP rear cameras powered by Fujitsu Milbeaut imaging software for changing backgrounds, refocusing after capturing shots, laser autofocus sensor, and an 8 MP front-facing camera. The fingerprint scanner in the back completes the package.
