Lenovo Phab2 Pro Specs
The Lenovo Phab2 Pro runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The device comes with a metal unibody. It features a 6.4 inch Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixel) IPS LCD display with a pixel density of ~459 PPI. It comes with an assertive display that allows it to adapt to variable lighting like sunlight and light reflections.
The Lenovo Phab2 Pro was developed in collaboration with Google as part of Project Tango. Tango enables augmented reality (AR) gaming and utilities. Tango enables motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning. It uses this to recognize places, recreate them and add virtual objects to it.
This will allow you to navigate indoor places or add objects such as a table or a bed to your room. Lenovo has promised that the Phab2 Pro will come with a special app store for Tango. It will come with 25 apps at launch and possibly reach 100 apps by the end of the year.
The dual SIM Phab2 Pro is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor (4 x 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4 x 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72) along with Adreno 510 GPU. It comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB using microSD card. The phone lacks a dedicated microSD slot so the SIM slot 2 can be used to insert a microSD card.
