In case the recently launched 5.7 inch Samsung Galaxy Note5 was too small for you, then Chinese OEM Lenovo has something that may entice you. The company just launched a device with 6.8 inch display at the IFA, Berlin. And guess what, they are calling it the Phab Plus.
The Phab Plus is an adept name for a device as big as this. Just a few years back a 7 inch device was considered a tablet, but now due to reduction in unnecessary bezels, mobile OEMs are fitting such large screens in pretty small form factors.
Nevertheless the new Lenovo Phab Plus is a joy for phablet lovers. With a 6.8 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display and octacore Snapdragon 615 with each cores clocked at 1.5GHz the Lenovo's so called phablet has all what it takes to make its mark in the mid-range phablet market. Add to that the presence of 2GB of RAM along with 32GB of onboard storage. Memory expansion facility is also available via MicroSD card slot.
The Phab Plus features a 13MP Omnivision camera with Dual LED Flash. On the front is a 5MP front shooter. Considering the large display size, Lenovo have bundled in a fairly large battery with the phablet -3500mAh. This mayn't be as large as the 5000mAh battery supposed to don the Vibe P1, but it's definitely enough to keep it running for a day or two of heavy usage.
As of now, the phablet running on Android Lollipop with the company's custom UI on top. The device was previously launched in China a few day back at $406. No word about the international pricing is known as of now.
Along with the Phab Plus Lenovo has launched a sibling called the Phab with 6.98 inch HD display and a whopping 4250mAh battery. The rest of the specs are identical to the Phab Plus.
