Project Tango phone, Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is hitting the US on November 1

Last month, we reported about Lenovos upcoming phablet the Phab 2 Pro, which is the first smartphone to showcase Googles Project Tango. Tango was Googles conception that allows hardware to detect its own location in 3 dimensions by using advanced infrared sensors.

The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is now showing on Lenovos US website under the Phab 2s product page as Coming Soon. Available November 1.

The Phab 2 Pro was originally intended to be released in the US this summer, however unforeseen circumstances caused Lenovo to delay the launch of the smartphone, likely due to the nature of Project Tango, which is a brand-new technology. The new release period was changed to fall, which coincides with the companys new release date of November 1. The phone is already well on sale in Asian markets where Lenovo phones are sold. The Phab 2 Pro is expected to be sold in Best Buy Retail stores as well.

The Phab 2 Pro will run $499 in the US and sport a really huge QHD screen, 16MP camera, 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM, and Its powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652. A phone with a screen of this size needs a large battery to go with it. The Phab 2 Pro has a 4,050mAh battery.
