As promised nearly a month ago, Lenovo has officially launched its newest phablet offering, the Phab 2 Pro. For those not familiar with this device, it has the distinction of being the first smartphone out in the market to come with support for Google’s Tango augmented reality tech. The handset comes with a price of $500.
Apart from officially introducing its two newest Motorola modular flagship devices -- the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force, Lenovo also took the opportunity to introduce a family of smartphones under its own branding. As can be gleaned from the name, the new Phab2 devices are a follow up to the Phab and Phab Plus phablets that the Chinese unveiled in September of last year. But it appears that this year, Lenovo’s latest phablets have a few cool things to offer.
Although it has been around since maybe the 1990s, the word “phablet” has only started to increase in popularity in the last few years, especially in the onset of the 2010s with the introduction of Samsung’s Note lineup of smartphones, devices which featured large display screens. Now, most flagship devices and premium smartphones now come with screens not smaller than 5 inches, as mobile consumers become more and more receptive of smartphones that can also double as mini-tablets. Phablets truly are fast becoming the new norm when it comes to handsets.
