Lenovo announces three new Phab devices – Phab 2, Phab2 Plus and Phab2 Pro


We expected one device in the family – Lenovo launched three different models instead. Joining the Lenovo mobile family are the new Phab 2, Phab 2 Plus and Phab 2 Pro. The three models differentiate between themselves with build materials, internals and features.

The first model is the Phab2. It comes with a 6.4inch display that only runs a HD (720p) display. It has a MediaTek MT8735 chip inside, a 13 megapixel camera and 3GB/32GB RAM/Storage combo for day-to-day usage. It has a plastic body with a metal ring around the body for a robust usage experience.


Phab2 Plus meanwhile ups the ante with a Full HD (1080p) display panel, still at 6.4 inches. It is paired with a higher specced MediaTek MT8783 octa-core processor, a 13 megapixel dual camera with PDAF and laser autofocus, as well as a 3GB/32GB RAM/Storage combo. It dons a full metal body and even 2.5D glass for comfort. Plus it comes with a fingerprint scanner as well.


The big daddy of the three is the Phab2 Pro. It is the first Tango device that gives you augmented reality capabilities in your hand, and unlimited creativity to boot. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB on board storage. What makes it stand out when compared to the other Phabs is the three Tango-certified cameras on board. It has a 16 megapixel RGB camera, an Infrared camera and a fish-eye camera to capture and change the data recorded into augmented-reality content.

All of these phones comes with a 4050mAh battery, and will be available starting in September from USD 299 (~RM 1209).
