Lenovo Phab 2 Plus With Enormous 6.4 Inch Display launched
Lenovo has launched its Phab 2 Plus smartphone in India with AR ready Dual rear camera. The smartphone is priced at Rs 14,999 and availability is exclusive to Amazon.
The Lenovo Phab 2 plus carries a large 6.4-inch screen with Full HD resolution and a pixel density of 344 pixels per inch. The screen comes with 2.5 D curved glass finish. The sides of the bezels are blackened to give it a bezel-free appearance.
The display is enormous and it is a bulky smartphone or better to be called as a phablet. There are very few smartphones with a screen size above 6 inches like the Xiaomi MI max or Sony XA Ultra.
Key Specs and Details – Phab 2 Plus
Powering the device is a MediaTek MT8783 Octa-core processor with a max clock speed of 1.3 GHz. It is a new 64 Bit processor from MediaTek and the Phab 2 Plus is one of the first smartphones to use it.
Additionally, it comes with 3 GB RAM and offers 32 GB internal storage space. It also supports an external SD card for further expansion. But there is no dedicated slot for the SD card, and you have to use either a micro-sd card or a SIM in the second SIM slot.
The user experience is good as it runs on Android marshmallow 6.0 with a slight customization of the UI by Lenovo. Since it has a large display there are some UI tweaks to ease single hand usage.
Still, there is no heavy bloating of the UI by Lenovo unlike a year back when Lenovo used to add lots of bloatware.
Also, it comes with a uni-body metallic design. The rear of the phone has a slight curve to offer a better grip and make it easier to use. A fingerprint scanner is provided at the back of the smartphone, below the Dual camera set up.
For photography, it offers dual camera set up, with a 13 MP main sensor. The pill-shaped camera setup holds to camera lens for clicking vivid images. The front camera is 8 megapixels with f 2.0 aperture to click selfies.
The camera app comes with AR mode; the AR mode enables you to keep a subject (like animation) within the camera view and click the photo (which this is similar to Pokémon Go’s AR feature.)
Lenovo has mentioned that the phone is using a Fujitsu Milbeaut image processor, which according to the company will improve low light capabilities, and capture DSLR like images
On the connectivity front, the smartphone comes with 4G support, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS for navigation.
Lastly, it carries a 4050 mAh battery pack, which is adequate for the mobile’s configuration.
