Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro Unveiled With Google Tango

Lenovo has surprised us all with its latest and greatest Phab 2 Pro. Lenovo is the first to make its contribution to Google’s Project Tango by unveiling its Phab 2 Pro, which is the first smartphone to include Google’s Tango technology.

The unique selling point of this smartphone is the Tango. It is basically a development kit made by Google that has been endowed with technology which can help the device to decipher space and motion. Therefore it essentially allows devices such as Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro to inculcate 3D tracking motion with depth sensing so that the device is not only aware of the environment of its location but also knows about its movement through space.

The development kit was originally offered to developers in the shape of a tablet so that they could have a chance to create experiences with Tango but it seems that it has surpassed that and is now directly available to consumers through smartphones. Phab 2 Pro will be the first smartphone to be made available to the public which hosts this technology. The phone has a 6.4inch Quad HD display with a curved glass.

This screen dimension puts the Phab 2 Pro closer to the category of a “phablet” but this shouldn’t be surprising given that the first Tango device was actually a tablet. The huge display is accompanied by a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, with the option of increasing storage space with an external microSD card. To compensate for the larger display, Lenovo has included a huge battery pack of 4050mAh.

The phone is dual SIM to cater all those who use different numbers for personal and business purposes. It has an 8 MP front camera but all the Tango magic takes place within the 16MP back camera. You then you will be able to buy it from September for $499 in the United States.
