More than 6 months after it was first brought out to the world, Google’s first AR phone Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has made its way into the Indian market with the Chinese smartphone maker launching it in a supposed tie-up with e-commerce giant, Flipkart.
The Phab 2 Pro is reportedly the first Tango Project smartphone and is capable of rendering Augmented Reality (AR) in real time, courtesy a couple of supporting cameras on the back and some specialized technology inside.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Phab 2 Pro is powered by a 1.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor which is supported by a 4GB RAM and an Adreno 510 GPU. Encased in a metal body, the phone has a 6.4-inch QHD 2.5D curved glass display and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Furthermore, the Phab 2 Pro features a sum total of four cameras with three of them being located on the back of the phone. Apart from a 16MP primary one, the two other cameras on the back include a motion tracking sensor as well as a depth sensing camera to facilitate a real-time conversion of the surroundings to AR.
The camera on the front of the phone is a regular 8MP unit with f/2.2 aperture lens.
Other features of the phone include an in-built storage space of 64GB and a 4050mAh battery that has provisions for fast charging services. The Phab 2 Pro also boasts of Dolby Atmos speakers and Dolby 5.1 audio capture in its arsenal.
The phone seemingly comes with 25 pre-installed apps that support AR and the company has also announced a dedicated app store for the same.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has been brought out into the market and is available for buying starting today, albeit exclusively on Flipkart. The phone is priced at Rs. 29,990 and is available in two colors – Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey.
