When Lenovo announced that is partnering with Google for the first Project Tango smartphone, many wondered when it will be released – and during today’s Lenovo Tech World, that’s exactly what they did. It’s simply the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the second generation of its phablet but it’s also the first Project Tango smartphone to be released.
Project Tango is a platform introduced by Google that will built sensors into smartphones that would enable it to detect exact positioning without the need for GPS or other external factors.
Specifications-wise, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor with 4 GB of RAM and 16-megapixel camera capable of 4K video recording.
But as a Project Tango device the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be able to use it as a toll for augmented reality, not just for games but also for some apps including the ability to measure a room in accurate detail. You can visualize furniture on how it would look like in your room before purchasing it.
