LENOVO PHAB 2 PRO TO ‘TANGO’ ITS WAY INTO THE WORLD OF AUGMENTED REALITY THIS QUARTERby Rajshree Faria September 15, 2016
When two pioneers of the tech world came together at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, the world knew that there was a milestone coming… and that is precisely what happened when Lenovo & Google officially announced that the Mountain View-based technology giant would see its ground-breaking augmented reality platform launch on the back of the Beijing-based company’s next big offering.
So what is all this hullabaloo about this 3D mapping technology from Google? Why is the launch of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro creating waves of anticipation? Let’s see why, shall we?
Equipped with the Tango technology, this is what the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be capable of doing:

Phew! Enough said about the Tango aspect of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. Now, let’s discuss all the high-end specs and features that the 6.4” phablet will sport…
The beautiful aluminium unibody of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro encompasses a stunning 6.4” QHD display i.e. a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560p. That’s not all; if your Smartphone usually doubles up as your music/video player too, then the Dolby Atmos audio hardware will make the experience of listening to your favourite band’s songs even better!
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is your answer to all your social media worries; with a 16MP primary and 8MP secondary camera, all your Snapchat stories will now look even better!
Where there is Tango there needs to be power, right? Hence, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 652 processor which has been optimised for Tango. With 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal memory, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro ensures that you have enough storage for all the cool new apps you download and lovely pictures that you click on your phone!
A massive screen, an extensive directory of features all require some juice to work, and that’s why the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro packs in a 4050 mAh battery with 2.4 x turbo charging so that you don’t feel the need to carry a power bank around.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be available in two colours: Gunmetal Gray or Champagne Gold.
With the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro being the first one to incorporate the end work of Project Tango, it will be interesting to see how the tech geeks react to this Rs.33, 000 (approx.) Smartphone when it finally releases. Although Lenovo Phab2 Pro Tango was slated to launch this month, you will not be able to lay your hands on this magical device until fall.
