Lenovo, at CES in January 2016 had announced that it was teaming up with Google to manufacture and launch the world’s first consumer Tango phone under the Google’s Project Tango platform. Now, Lenovo has manufactured the phone with the name Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. The Tango phone is capable of rendering the augmented reality (AR) in real-time, thanks to host of specialized tech inside the rear camera.
The Phab 2 Pro was announced back in June 2016 in the US, which also became the first Lenovo-branded phone to arrive in the US. But now, we have spotted a Chinese variant of the Phab 2 Pro on the famous equipment certification website – TENAA, which shows a whole lot of different specifications from the US variant.
The TENAA listing shows the smartphone with dimensions of 179.88 x 88.57 x 77.15mm. The Chinese Edition sports a huge 6.4-inch QHD (2560 x 1440p) display. The battery on the device is a non-removable 4050mAh one. The device is available in two colors – Gunmetal Grey and Champagne Gold.
The processor on the phablet is a Snapdragon 652 (wondering why not 820) along with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Tango smartphone features a total of four cameras – an 8MP front-facing selfie along with a 16MP primary camera at the back, a depth camera and motion-tracking camera. The depth and the motion-tracking camera function only alongside the main camera to enable the phone to detect the surrounding environment for best AR experience.
The listing on TENAA means that the device will soon hit the Chinese markets. The price of the device for the Chinese market is unknown yet, but it is expected to cost $499 (3300 Yuan) in US which means that the cost of the device will be probably ranged between 3299 Yuan ($499) and 3499 Yuan ($528) in China. The device is expected to launch in September and hopefully will be launched in both market – US and China at the same time. Till then, stays tuned for more news and enjoy the image gallery below.
