Lenovo PHAB Plus official with a massive 6.8-inch display

If the Galaxy Note 5 and the current crop of sub-6-inch phablet aren’t big enough for you, then Lenovo has a solution. The company just unveiled a new PHAB series of smartphones with insanely large displays.

The PHAB Plus comes in at 6.8 inches with a resolution of 1080p. It also packs a Snapdragon 615 processor, a 3500mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. It runs a modified version of Android 5.0 with a special one-handed mode, and features an all-metal design in “Gunmetal,” “Grey Titanium” or “Silver Honey” color options.

There’s also a Lenovo PHAB, which packs an even bigger 7-inch screen but weaker specs. That includes a 720p resolution, a hefty 4250mAh battery, a quad-core Snapdragon chip, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and the same 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras. It comes in red, white or blue.

Both of Lenovo’s new smartphones should be available in time for the holidays. The regular PHAB starts at $179 while the PHAB Plus will cost at least $299. If you’re looking for a big screen above all else, that’s not a bad deal, though most people will probably be better off trying a slightly smaller handset with better specs.
