Lenovo officially unveiled the Phab 2 Pro earlier this year, which is the world’s first Google Tango smartphone, and now it is finally for sale.

Lenovo is opening sales of the first Google Tango smartphone beginning today, and says that orders will begin shipping within seven business days. The phone is only available from Lenovo’s website at this point. The specs sheet is pretty stacked for the AR-focused handset, including a 6.4-inch 2.5D curved display, with a resolution of 2560×1440. There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor under the hood, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage with a microSD card slot for even more storage.

The handset also features a 16-megapixel camera on the back, an 8MP front-facing shooter, and a battery that measures in at 4050mAh, which also supports fast charging. There’s a fingerprint reader on the back, three microphones, and it’s running Android 6.0 out of the box.

The Phab 2 Pro’s main focus is Google Tango, though, which brings augmented reality (AR) experiences to the user in a variety of different ways. The phone can use its cameras, sensors, and software to take up to 250,000 measurements per second, which then allows developers to use AR apps to bring new experiences to life. That includes one from Lowe’s, the home improvement store, that lets users measure a room in real-time, and then visualize what furniture might look like inside that space.

The Phab 2 Pro from Lenovo costs $499.99. Do you plan on picking one up?
