For the first time ever, a smartphone can visualize and understand its surroundings. How is this possible? The device has sensors that capture more than 250,000 measurements per second to map indoor spaces. Phab 2 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, which is optimally balanced for a Tango workload and enables 3D AR graphic overlays to render physical surroundings more accurately.

The smartphone is also equipped with a 6.4-inch HD display, Dolby Audio Capture, 64GB onboard storage and a fast-focusing 13MP camera. But wait- there’s more. Phab 2’s AR mode allows you to superimpose effects such as virtual backgrounds or cartoons into your pictures. Did you get all of that? In addition to the basics like taking calls and sending messages, Phab 2 Pro gives you two ways to tango.
