Tango-powered Lenovo Phab 2 Pro delayed to the fall
After working on it behind closed doors with Google, Lenovo finally announced the world’s first commercial Tango phone back at Lenovo Techworld. The Tango-equipped Phab 2 Pro was expected to debut in September, but Lenovo has now officially delayed the handset to the fall.
While Lenovo hasn’t revealed any further details as to why they delayed the launch, the official Phab 2 Pro webpage now states the phone will arrive “this fall”. No specifics on when, though hopefully it will still arrive ahead of the holiday season. Pricing should still be the same as previously announced, at $499.
For those that need the recap, the handset featured reasonably decent specs such as a Snapdragon 652 processor, and 4GB RAM, a 6.4-inch QHD display. It also offered a number of premium capabilities including a fingerprint scanner, Dolby Atoms sound technology, Dolby 5.1 audio capture, and fast charging. Of course the real star was the camera configuration – a 8 MP front-facing camera, a 16 MP RGB camera, IR camera and a fisheye lens – and the numerous concealed sensors that made the AR magic of Tango tech possible.
