Of all the companies launching products at IFA Lenovo has the most to reveal, with the Chinese company raising the curtain on a slew of new devices. Among them were the previously leaked Phab and Phab Plus, a pair of smartphones that will be coming to the United States in time for the holiday season.The most interesting thing about these handsets is that they are the size of tablets but are actually smartphones and are being marketed as such. That means these are among the biggest smartphones ever released. The Phab comes with a 7-inch IPS LCD screen with 720p resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, micro SD card support, dual-SIM, a 13 megapixel rear camera, a 5 megapixel front facing lens, Dolby Atmos 3D sound technology, and a huge 4250mAh battery. Not really bad for a budget device, with the Phab arriving in the fourth quarter with a reasonable price of $179. The Phab Plus is actually smaller than its stable mater and boasts a 6.8-inch display, but it is a Full HD 1080p panel. The improved specs continue with an octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, micro SD card support, the same camera configuration as the Phab, and a smaller 3500mAh juicer. Both handsets run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, while the Phab Plus will launch in time for Christmas with a price of $299.
