The smartphone comes with over 35 augmented reality apps on the Google Play Store that works alongside the Tango camera. Developed in collaboration with Google, Lenovo’s smartphone effortlessly brings the Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) experience into the smartphone. The smartphone was announced at the Tech World event in June. For those unfamiliar with Project Tango, it is basically a Google project that allows smartphones to detect, map and know its position keeping in mind the surrounding around it. The process doesn’t need Wi-Fi or GPS. It can also spot obstacles within the environment. The technology uses camera selection and sensors to create 3D maps of the user’s surroundings in real-time.

While there are tons of apps and games that the company offers in the new smartphone, some of the apps and games include a measurement app called Measure; Homestyler Interior Design and games such as Domino World, Crayola Color Blaster, and Slingshot Island to name a few.

Lenovo PHAB2 Pro specifications

Lenovo’s PHAB2 Pro features a 6.4-inch QHD IPS display. It is powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM. There is also 64GB onboard memory on offer, which can be further expanded using a microSD card.

The camera is a bit different in term of photography and that’s what remains the highlight of the phone. With AR and VR, the phablet features an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, a 16-megapixel RGB camera, a motion camera and a depth sensing camera. Additionally, the device is capable of creating 3D maps of the users’ surroundings in real-time using motion sensing, depth sensing and 3D tracking. The phablet is armed with a 4,050mAh battery that comes along with fast-charging feature, and is said to deliver up to 15 hours of backup on single charge. On the software front, the phablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

While VR has been popular, AR recently came into limelight with the famous augmented reality game Pokémon GO. The AR mode on the PHAB2 Pro allows you to select from the already existing characters like a dog, a dragon cat or any such characters to name a few. Once you select the character of your choice, they appear on the camera app placed over the real world surrounding around you. You can do a lot more with the character you choose.

Talking about AR, Snapchat is also said to be working on its own Augmented Reality (AR) hardware as well. The rumors came after Snapchat joined the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), group of companies that take care of the Bluetooth wireless standard.
