Launched alongside the Yoga Book in Malaysia today is Lenovo’s range of Phab 2 smartphones. These include the Phab 2, the Phab 2 Plus, and of course, the world’s first Project Tango smartphone, the Phab 2 Pro.
Let’s start with the most interesting device of the three: the Phab 2 Pro. Retailing at RM1,899, it offers a sharp – and sizeable – 6.4-inch 1440p IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a 16MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus (along with depth and motion tracking sensors for Tango), an 8MP front-facing shooter, as well as a 4,050mAh battery.
Then we have the Phab 2 Plus, the mid-range device of the series. In essence, it’s a lower-end variant of the Phab 2 Pro without the Tango module. It features a 6.4-inch 1080p IPS display, a MediaTek MTK8783 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 13MP rear dual-camera with PDAF, and an 8MP front-facing shooter. Much like the Phab 2 Pro, the Phab 2 Plus also has a 4,050mAh battery; it carries a RM1,299 price tag.
Last but definitely not least, we have the Phab 2 – the most affordable device of the bunch. It’s equipped with a 6.4-inch 720p display, a MediaTek MTK8735 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, as well as a 4,050mAh battery. For these hardware, the Phab 2 goes for RM899 in Malaysia.
The Lenovo Phab 2 series of smartphones will be available in Malaysia from the middle of this month onwards. According to Lenovo Malaysia, these devices will be available for pre-order tomorrow; more information on this will be posted on the company’s Facebook page.
