Lenovo made several huge announcements on Thursday during its Lenovo Tech World keynote in San Francisco. Among them were three Lenovo-branded smartphones coming to the U.S. The major one there is the first Project Tango device for consumers, the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, but it also unveiled two additional devices, including the PHAB2 (pictured above) and the PHAB2 Plus (pictured below).

The Lenovo PHAB2 offers a massive 6.4-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display – not the sharpest out there, but it’ll help keep the cost down – Android 6.0, a MediaTek MTK 8735 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a 13MP camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. It also offers a large 4050mAh battery. Meanwhile, the PHAB2 Plus sports a more powerful MediaTek MTK 8783 processor and a 1080p display that measures the same 6.4-inches large. It offers the same RAM, storage and battery options as the PHAB2, but includes a 13MP camera that Lenovo features a Leica lens, in addition to an 8MP front-facing camera.

Both smartphones offer unique camera features. The PHAB2 has a special camera that allows you to add unique AR effects to your photos, which is a bit of a gimmick but kind of neat. The PHAB2 Plus features a special “Fujitsu Milbeatu image signal processor that powers the Leica camera,” which should promise really excellent photos in addition to the ability to control background blur.

The PHAB2 and PHAB2 Plus are bound for the U.S. this fall and will cost $199 and $299, respectively.
