Well, Phab 2 Pro with the Google Tango was not the only thing in Lenovo’s kitty and along with the Phab 2 Pro the company has also announced the Phab 2 and the Phab 2 Plus. As with all the Phab series phones even the Phab 2 comes with emphasise on the entertainment part.




The Phab 2 comes equipped with a 6.4-inch HD display as opposed to the QHD unit in the Phab 2 Pro. The Phab 2 is powered by the quad core MediaTek 8735 processor and is coupled with a 3GB of RAM. On the memory front the phone offers 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot that can further accommodate 128GB.

The imaging options include a 13-Megapixel PDAF primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel 85-degree wide angled secondary sensor. Lenovo Phab 2 runs on Android 6.0 and is backed by the 4050mAh battery. Audio aspects of the phone include Dolby Atmos 5.1, triple array microphone and active noise cancellation. The Phab 2 comes with the usual bevy of connectivity options including dual SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G LTE.

Lenovo Phab2 Plus on the other hand comes with a FHD 6.4-inch display along with 2.5D Curved Glass. Further, it is also powered by the more powerful octa core MediaTek 8783 and is paired with 3GB of RAM. The storage options on the Phab 2Plus don’t differ from the Phab 2. The Phab 2Plus also seems to have an upper hand on the imaging front with a 13-Megapixel dual camera setup alongside F2.0 aperture, Laser Focus and PDAF Light Supplement. The secondary camera is a 8-Megapixel unit with F2.2 and light supplement.

The Lenovo Phab 2 Plus shares the other innards with the Phab 2 but additionally also supports the augmented reality special effects. It is yet to be ascertained if the special effects Lenovo is referring to is Project Tango or if it is just a AR feature baked into the camera. Lenovo Phab 2 will start retailing at $199 followed by the Phab 2 Plus at $299. Both the phones will be made available starting from September in Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey colours.
