The new Lenovo Phab 2 smartphone will be available in the Indian market starting Friday and will be come in Gunmetal Grey and Champagne Gold colours. As teased earlier, the Lenovo Phab 2 will be available via Flipkart.

While the Lenovo Phab 2 has an HD (720×1280 pixel) screen, the Phab 2 Plus has a full-HD (1920×1080 pixel) display. Additionally, the Lenovo Phab 2 does not have a fingerprint sensor, which the Phab 2 Plus has.

Along with the 6.4-inch HD display and 4050mAh battery, the new Lenovo Phab 2 has a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8735 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. The Phab 2 packs 32GB of inbuilt storage with the option to expand further via microSD card (up to 128GB). For imaging, Lenovo Phab 2 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and PDAF while there is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with an 85-degree wide-angle lens. Lenovo has also claimed that the Phab 2 comes with augmented reality (AR) effects in camera app. The handset comes with 3 mics to record audio and also supports noise cancellation.

Lenovo Phab 2 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and supports a hybrid dual-SIM slot (both Micro-SIMs). The Phab 2 smartphone measures 175×88.5×9.6mm, and weighs 225 grams. Connectivity options of Lenovo Phab 2 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS support.

Lenovo will be launching the Phab 2 smartphone in India on Tuesday. The Chinese company is sending media invites for a webinar that begins at 11am IST. As teased earlier, the new Lenovo Phab 2 smartphone will be exclusive to Flipkart.

The company already unveiled the Phab 2 Plus in India last month, though there is still no word when it plans to launch the Phab 2 Pro, the Tango-ready phone, in India.

To refresh, the Lenovo Phab 2 is a Phab 2 Plus variant with some downgrades. The Phab 2 sports a lower resolution screen, camera is also downgraded, and there is no fingerprint scanner on the handset. Considering that Lenovo launched the Phab 2 Plus in India at Rs. 14,999, we expect the Phab 2 to be priced reasonably.

The Phab 2 was launched at the company’s Tech World Event in June and priced at $199 (roughly Rs. 13,500). However, upon checking the company’s US site, the company is selling the Phab 2 at $169 (roughly Rs. 11,500) – so we can expect pricing to be closer to this price point at launch in India.

For specifications, the Lenovo Phab 2 features a 6.4-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display, and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8735 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM.

The first Tango smartphone in the world was made by Lenovo, and was due to launch in September. That didn’t happen, and Lenovo quietly delayed the release “to this fall”. Now, a Google representative has confirmed that the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is coming to markets next month.

For those unaware, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro was unveiled at the Lenovo Tech World event in June this year. The smartphone has been made in collaboration with Google, and is the first smartphone that uses AR and VR to sense and map surroundings. The smartphone will make “AR and VR as pervasive as the GPS”, and will be intelligent enough to understand the size of the room you’re in, and even sense the presence of people in it. Project Tango (now renamed as just ‘Tango’) is expected to transform how we interact with e-commerce, education and gaming.

During the launch, the company claimed that the smartphone would hit the market in September, but that didn’t happen, and Lenovo quietly pushed the release to fall. Now, Clay Bavor, head of VR at Google, has told CNET that the phone will go on sale this November.

Around the same time Google’s two Pixel smartphones will hit the market as well. The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro’s abilities are based on machine vision, with a camera and sensor setup that provides motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning. This can enable augmented reality applications like indoor navigation, search, and gaming. With depth sensing, it can be used for gesture tracking in virtual reality as well.

And for all of this to work, Lenovo has introduced four cameras inside the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. It bears an 8-megapixel front camera, a 16-megapixel rear RGB camera, a depth-sensing infrared camera with an imager and an emitter, as well as a motion tracking camera. The smartphone is huge with a 6.4-inch QHD display, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor paired with a 4GB of RAM.

It is expected to be priced at $499 (roughly Rs. 33,300) on launch. The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro also packs a 4050mAh battery and promises 15 hours of battery life.

It seems the first Google Tango smartphone, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, has been delayed. It was the first commercial attempt to imbue a smartphone with an excellent understanding of what is around it, using Google’s Project Tango machine vision technologies.

The Chinese company has quietly extended the availability date of the Phab 2 Pro from ‘summer’ to the ‘fall’ season, which hints at a launch in October. There is no certainty on shipments, but as per Lenovo’s US website, the Phab 2 Pro will be ‘coming this fall’.

There’s no information on the release in other regions.

To recall, Project Tango is the project under Google that is aimed at harnessing a machine’s potential to sense its surroundings using computer vision and area learning technologies. By the Phab 2 Pro’s launch, the project had graduated to just ‘Tango’. Lenovo and Google together came up with Phab 2 Pro that is built to use Tango features in it.

Talking about the specifications, Phab 2 Pro has 6.4-inch QHD IPS display, powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM. It bears a 4050mAh battery, which Lenovo claims can deliver a 15-hour battery life.

The cameras in Phab 2 Pro are the lifelines of the smartphone that actually hone in real depth sensing and area learning. The Phab 2 Pro houses a total of four cameras in it. Those include a 8-megapixel front camera, a 16-megapixel rear RGB camera, a depth-sensing infrared camera with an imager and an emitter, as well as a motion tracking camera. The Phab 2 Pro can record 360-degree and 4K videos as well. There is a fingerprint scanner at the back of the smartphone.

Notably, it also packs Dolby Audio 5.1 Capture technology for recording 3D sound. It’s also said to be the first smartphone to be able to record a 360-degree video with Dolby 5.1 stereo capture.
