Lenovo announced its PHAB Plus smartphone in China in August and last month, we went hands on with the super-sized smartphone at IFA 2015. Now, the company has launched its handset in India via retailer Amazon India and the big-screen device can be had for Rs. 18,490 (approx. $284). The handset doesn’t seem to be officially supported in India however, as Lenovo hasn’t the listed the handset on its local website.
The PHAB Plus aims to reinvent the concept of a phablet by offering a large 6.8-inch Full HD display at a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with an Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB RAM. Under the hood there is 32GB inbuilt storage, which can be expanded further using a microSD card while on the back is a 13MP rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 5MP front facing snapper.
The Lenovo PHAB Plus runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo’s Vibe UI skin on top, while the handset also sports dual-SIM functionality to let you use two SIMs at once. Other notable specs include LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB, which can charge the 3500 mAh inbuilt battery. The handset also features a rear speaker equipped with Dolby Atmos and as we covered in our hands on, Dolby Atmos is a great unique selling point for Lenovo’s larger-than-life smartphone.
