The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro was unveiled this summer, taking the intricate system of cameras and depth sensors from the Project Tango tablets into the world of smartphones. The handset is finally up for sale today, priced at $500, but you should know that orders aren’t meant to ship for another month or so.
The handset also marks the debut of the smartphone segment within the home improvement store Lowe’s. Phab 2 Pro can be used like a regular smartphone, but also like a tool for architecture and house planning, by creating a virtual rendering of a room and then applying to it various paint colors, rearranged furniture and more.
It’s a phablet actually, one that has a 6.4 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 CPU and 4 GB of RAM, as well as 64 GB of storage. There’s a 4050 mAh battery on board and a rear camera system, based on a 16 megapixel RGB cam, a depth camera and a fisheye cam for wide angle shooting. This system lets you do all sorts of cool augmented reality stuff, like play with a virtual pet, insert aliens into pics and videos and play interactive games.
Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is available with Android Marshmallow and it comes in gold or grey.
