The launching of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro that was supposedly scheduled during summer, was apparently delayed until late last year. Finally the augmented reality(AR) hyping smartphone is ready to join the melee. Augmented reality has not gained much ground if not for the very popular AR games that set the world on fire and did some record breaking hits.
According to Tech Times, the games craze may have died down, but AR is still alive and kicking and, probably, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has great potential. Reportedly the Phab 2 Pro is the first in the world to include Tango, the new technology from Google that enables AR in gaming and utilities. The Phab 2 Pro apparently, will allow the presentation of objects and information as if it is in the real world. It is said that this will open countless potential applications for fun and other practical purposes. In gaming, the device will accordingly provide for an entertaining virtual playground.
However, aside from the AR and the Tango technology, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro apparently do not contain radical specifications. The device's strong points are Its remarkable 6.4-inch QHD 2.5D display and large 4,050 mAh battery, but otherwise the handset only contain a midrange Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of native storage space and a 13-megapixel main camera.
Nonetheless, Forbes say that the Phab2 Pro offers a hint into what Google's Tango could empower and what AR apps could provide, if its usefulness is seriously taken. The post also say that the Phab2 Pro is not perfect, and sometimes the software can become uncooperative. However, just a quick reset of the app and accordingly, the software starts operating again. This is unlike the previous Tango devices where all running apps have to be cleared every few minutes. It is reported to work well and users can to do creative things with AR that simply are not possible in any other platform.
