Lenovo is all set to release what has been touted as the world’s first Tango-powered smartphone, Phab 2 Pro. The new smartphone, unveiled to the world for the first time back in June this year, is going on sale starting November 1.
As explained by Lenovo, Tango is a new technology from Google that senses and maps surroundings to make augmented reality experiences possible. All you have to do is look through a Tango-enabled phone, and you will find objects and information overlaid onto the real world.
The technology lets the smartphone user measure objects with the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro or visualise furniture like a new table or sofa to see how it looks in one's home.
The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro features a 6.4-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, Snapdragon 652 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage and a 4,050mAh battery. The phone shows off a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
Priced at $499, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be available in two colours - Champagne Gold and Gunmetal Grey.
