Lenovo Phab2 Pro Tango-Enabled Phone Now Available in US From Online Stores

The highly awaited Lenovo Phab2 Pro was officially introduced and can be bought from the manufacturer’s online store in the United States. Of course, the main selling point of this new handset is the fact the it’s the first Tango-enabled phone.

For those of you who aren’t up to date, Tango is Google’s augmented reality program, especially conceived for handheld devices.

Google announced that buyers will be able to pick from 35 different augmented reality apps, currently available in the Play Store. Thanks to this amazing project, you can scan items from your home, for example, or see how other piece of furniture would look in your room, as well as appliances or many others.

Besides this, with the Phab2 Pro, you can play augmented reality games, like dominoes, or paint and draw on any surface surrounding you. Also, let’s not forget that you can play with virtual pets, one of our personal favourites.

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro comes with a 6.4″ QHD touchscreen and it’s powered by a Snapdragon 652 system-on-chip, with four Cortex-A72 cores, alongside four Cortex-A53 cores, for less demanding tasks. The processor is aided by 4 GB of RAM and an Adreno 510 GPU, while the internal storage capacity counts 64 GB, with the possibility of expanding it, using a microSD card.

In terms of camera, the phone comes with a 16 MP snapper on the back, while the selfie unit is relying on an 8 MP sensor. The battery has a capacity of 4,050 mAh and the operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Currently, the Lenovo Phab2 Pro can be bought just in the United States, unlocked, for $499,99, but it will be available in China, next week, as well. It will be very interesting to see if this revolutionary handset will be a reference point for other manufacturers, which might implement Google Tango in their upcoming devices as well.
