It’s November 1, the anointed date of reckoning for the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. It’s the first smartphone developed in tandem with Google under the Project Tango banner to support Android’s first augmented reality apps.
The $500 phone, which is on sale today and ships within seven business days, will be supported with 35 Tango apps starting today. They include games like Crayola Color Blaster by Legacy Games, Hot Wheels Track Builder and Ghostly Mansion. More practical apps for homemakers include Wayfair View and iStaging while educational apps also get a showing here with Solar Simulator.
Spec-wise, the Phab 2 Pro comes with a spacious 6.4-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. Puzzlingly, Lenovo is using a mid-range Snapdragon 652 processor to support the phablet’s processes, although the chipset has been supposedly fine-tuned especially for Tango. There’s also 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage onboard.
The phone is available direct from Lenovo. We aren’t sure when Lowe’s hardware stores will get the Phab 2 Pro.
