IFA 2015: Lenovo launches new Phab and Phab Plus tablets

Lenovo has launched two new tablets at IFA in Berlin earlier today. Crafted for single handed use, the new tablets, named Phab and Phab Plus, feature sub-7-inch displays, powerful cameras and 4G capability.

The Lenovo Phab contains a 6.98-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and supports the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS. It looks more like a tall smartphone rather than a tablet, which makes the name perfectly suited to what it is.

The phablet also features 13MP primary and 5MP front cameras, a Snapdragon 615 chip, 2GB RAM and an internal storage of 32GB. A separate microSD slot will offer you additional storage for your music and apps. Featuring a powerful 3,500mAh battery, the Phab will be available in Metallic Grey and Midnight Blue colour options.

The Lenovo Phab Plus is ironically a smaller variant unlike Plus models released by other phone makers. It  features a 6.8 inch IPS display with a lesser resolution than the Phab with 1280 x 720 pixels. The Phablet's bright spot is its battery which is a powerful 4,250mAh behemoth, even as it's RAM and processor, which are similar to those of the Phab, are unlikely to support heavy multi-tasking or HD gaming.

The Phab Plus will be available in Tuxedo Black, Polar White, Aqua Blue, and Cherry Red colour options. Since Lenovo hasn't released the pricing or availability dates for both tablets in Europe yet, we'll get back to you as soon as we learn more.
