Lenovo Phab 2 Pro Project Tango smartphone gets delayed

The Lenovo US store page for the Phab 2 Pro has been changed from “coming this summer" to "coming this fall." This means that the handset will now be available between September and December.


About two years ago, Google had unveiled Project Tango, allowing smart devices to map out three-dimensional spaces. Earlier this year it partnered with Lenovo and had announced to launch the first device featuring the technology dubbed Phab 2 Pro.

While the launch time-frame of the device was suppose to be this summer, it seems Lenovo is facing some issues leading to a delay. The Lenovo US store page for the Phab 2 Pro has been changed from “coming this summer" to "coming this fall." This means the handset will now be available between September and December.

Apart from the US, the Phab 2 Pro is expected to hit the Asia Pacific markets as well including India, Indonesia, Philippines, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Cambodia, and Myanmar. However there is still no confirmation as to when exactly it will arrive in these countries.

The specifications of the smartphone include a 6.4-inch 2K display, a Snapdragon 652 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, a 4,050 mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner. The smartphone is priced at $499 (Rs 33,000 approx).

The real capability of the smartphone lies within its multiple cameras. There are four cameras including an 8MP front camera, a 16MP rear RGB camera, a depth-sensing infrared camera and a motion tracking camera. Apart from 3D mapping and depth sensing, the Phab 2 Pro can record 360-degree as well as 4K videos.
