Lenovo has officially announced that the launching of their upcoming phablet, Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, is on November 1st.

According to The Verge, Phab 2 would be the first smartphone to showcase Google Tango.

Tango was Google's idea of allowing hardware to detect its own location in 3D by using advanced infrared sensors, as explained by GSMArena.

It is like a series of sensors that let a smartphone or tablet map three dimensional space, then overlay it with virtual objects that appear on the screen, as described The Verge.

As reported by GSMArena, the Phab 2 Pro was supposed to be released in the US this summer; however due to unanticipated reasons; the launch of the said smartphone has been delayed. Purportedly, one of the causes pointed out is the nature of its brand new technology, the Project Tango.

The Verge explained that Project Tango is one of Google projects that is both futuristic and a bit outdated. It may seem as an oxymoron, but it is due to its "augmented reality" of head-mounted displays like HoloLens and Magic Leap.

One of the major stand-out features of this device is that the Phab 2 Pro is sported with extra-large depth-sensing Google Tango camera on the back of the device, as stated by the Verge.

With this camera, it enables the smartphone to map out physical spaces, track its position in a room, and follow objects.

GSMArena also affirmed that Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will run $499 (unlocked) in the US. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, the other phone features and specs are as follows: 16MP camera, 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM.

In addition to the Tango sensor, Phab 2 also comes with a huge QHD screen; hence, this needs a large battery to go with it. It has a 4,050mAh battery, as further described by GSMArena. The Phab 2 Pro is expected to be sold in Best Buy Retail stores in the U.S.
