Priced at Rs. 11,999, the Lenovo Phab 2 will be available in India starting Friday and will be available in Gunmetal Grey and Champagne Gold colours.

Lenovo has also claimed that the Phab 2 comes with augmented reality (AR) effects in the camera app. The handset comes with 3 mics to record audio and also supports noise cancellation.
The larger screen remains its biggest feature, though, and the device will clearly be targeting a slightly older demographic which actually uses the smartphone to complete and do a lot of tasks otherwise meant for PC’s.
