Lenovo has teased the launch of a smartphone on December that is highly suspected to be the PHAB 2. Teased as a contest on the company s official Twitter handle, the caption reads #GoPHAB yet again on December 6 . The launch is expected since Lenovo has already launched the PHAB 2 Plus in India last month. The company had unveiled the PHAB 2 at its Tech World Show in June earlier this year along with the PHAB 2 Plus. Lenovo has already launched the PHAB 2 Plus in India last month for a price tag of Rs 14,999. Both the PHAB 2 and PHAB 2 Plus are successors to Lenovo s PHAB and PHAB Plus phablets which were launched last year.

There are reports that the Lenovo PHAB 2 smartphone will be launched exclusively on Flipkart. This is interesting as the PHAB 2 Plus was launched exclusively on Amazon. There is no word on the India pricing of the PHAB 2 as yet. When announced, the PHAB 2 and PHAB 2 Plus were priced at $199 (Rs 13,000 approximately) and $299 (Rs 20,000 approximately) respectively. But the India launch price for the PHAB 2 Plus came lower than expected. The Lenovo PHAB 2 is available in two color options of Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey.

Lenovo PHAB 2 specifications

Lenovo PHAB 2 features a giant 6.4-inch HD display with 459 ppi pixel density. Under the hood of the phablet, runs a Mediatek MT8735 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz paired with Mali-T70MP2 GPU. The phablet comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage which is further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

In the photography department, the Lenovo PHAB 2 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and LED flash. Up front, the PHAB 2 houses a selfie camera. For connectivity, the PHAB 2 comes with options like dual-SIM support, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. On the software front, the Lenovo PHAB 2 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Vibe UI. For power, the PHAB 2 uses a massive 4,050mAh battery.

As compared to its predecessor, the PHAB 2 comes with a set of improvements and upgrades in terms of RAM, Android OS and expandable storage. Interestingly, Lenovo has reduced the screen size of the PHAB 2 to 6.4-inch as compared to the 6.98-inch screen size on the PHAB smartphone. These include an improvement from the previous Android 5.1 Lollipop to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Also an upgrade is the 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage to 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage. The camera remains the same and the connectivity options as well. Lenovo has made a change in the chipset as it shifted from Qualcomm s Snapdragon chipset to a Mediatek chipset. The battery has funnily decreased from 4,250mAh to 4,050mAh. Lenovo PHAB s battery is said to give 480 hours on standby and 24 hours of play time.

In comparison to the PHAB 2 Plus, the PHAB 2 comes with only a few difference in terms of specifications. The only changes come in lower screen resolution and in the photography department. In comparison to the PHAB 2, the PHAB 2 Plus sports a full HD display and comes with a dual-lens camera setup. The PHAB 2 Plus also features a fingerprint scanner which is missing in the PHAB 2.

Lenovo had also recently started shipping its Google Tango powered smartphone the PHAB 2 Pro. The smartphone comes with over 35 augmented reality apps on the Google Play Store that works alongside the Tango camera. Lenovo PHAB 2 Pro stands out for bringing the augmented reality and virtual reality experience into the smartphone. The PHAB 2 Pro is available for $499 which roughly translates to Rs 33,500. Although there have been reports that Lenovo would be launching the PHAB 2 Pro in Asia Pacific markets which includes India, but no official word has been out yet regarding it. Lenovo has been rather busy as it also launched the K6 Power smartphone in India last week, which is all set to go on sale on December 6, the same day as the PHAB 2 launch.
