Last week Lenovo announced two new devices, the Lenovo PHAB 2 Plus and PHAB 2 at its official Tech World event in San Francisco. Successor to the last year’s PHAB and PHAB Plus, the new devices have very similar features.
The phablets, Lenovo PHAB 2 Plus and PHAB 2 will be priced $199 (roughly Rs. 13,275) and $299 (roughly Rs. 19,950) respectively. The company introduced these phablets in Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey color variants, and will be available globally starting from September 2016.
The Lenovo PHAB 2 Plus flaunts a 6.4-inch 2.5D Curved Glass display with Full HD resolution and powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT8783 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with the Mali-T720 GPU. It comes equipped with a Dual 13MP rear camera setup with Futjitsu Milbeaut ISPs, 1.34μm pixel, Laser Auto Focus, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and LED Flash.
It also includes an 8MP front camera with 1.4 μm pixel and f/2.2 aperture. The phablet has a bunch of impressive features such as Augmented-Realityspecial effects, background swap, extreme manual settings and refocus. You will also get a fingerprint sensor on the rear.
On the other hand, the Lenovo PHAB packs in a 6.4-inch 720p HD display and runs on quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8735 processor along with Mali-T720 GPU. It got a single 13MP rear camera with PDAF, LED Flash and a 5MP front snapper with 85-degree wide-angle lens.
Other than these things, both the phablets share same specifications such as 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, microSD slot, Hybrid Dual SIM, 4050mAh battery, 4G LTE support, WiFi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
The devices run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) OS with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI and have a unibody metal design. The company also added Triple Array Mic with Active Noise-Cancellation and Dolby Atmos with 5.1 Dolby Audio Capture for a better sound quality.
