Unfortunately, we have no idea when it would be available in this part of the world, but based on past trends, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro might not have a Nigeria launch, or it might take a while to get here.giphy
Based on initial reviews from platforms like CNET, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro does seem like a great device, although,  of CNET believes that the “Tango technology itself still feels a little rough around the edges.”

    What am I using thAt size of phone ? to do? All [frick]ing gimmicks man.
    Why don’t all these phone ? companies focus their energies on quantum computing rather than making & releasing big a$$ phones that don’t add any value?

  4. Titi says:

    Unfortunately for us, we always carry last when it comes to stuff like this. Take for example the Google pixel device, still no words from the Google nigeria team, then there is the Xiaomi and other devices that didn’t even smell here.

    1. Yomi says:

      I totally agree with you titi. To make matters worse, Nigeria has banned foreign transactions which means that we would be able to use third party platforms to get this device. Such a sad world we live in

  5. Laide says:

    Misstechy I thought your devices small and portable like you ?

  6. tee says:

    I want one too, you know, bragging rights (i know my people are going to buy it for whatsapp and selfie-ing)… But ama chill till the AR tech gets matured…

  7. VECTÖR says:

  13. Eddie says:

    6.4″ screen is pretty crazy for a ‘phone’. Nice specs other than that. And about $200 cheaper than the iPhone 7 too
