After releasing the Phab 2 Plus in India Lenovo is back and has now launched the Phab 2. The Phab 2 is aimed at catering to the niche who prefer large screened display for media consumptions. The best part is that Lenovo has priced the offering at Rs 11,999 which is a sweet price point indeed for a device with a screen size greater than 6-inch, especially after considering the limited options in this segment.
The Phab 2 comes equipped with a 6.4-inch HD display as opposed to the QHD unit in the Phab 2 Pro. That said the device apparently doesn’t come with a Corning Gorilla protective layer and instead settles for a hardened glass. Moving on, 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 camera setup includes a 13-Megapixel PDAF primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel 85-degree wide angled secondary sensor. Unlike the Phab 2 Pro the Phab 2 is devoid of the Google Tango support, however, the camera app tries to balance out by offering AR characters. That said the Phab 2 will not be supporting any format of Virtual Reality, unlike the recent Note series. The audio aspects of the Phab 2 include Dolby Atmos 5.1, triple array microphone (360-Degree capture) 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.
