World’s First Google Tango Smartphone – Lenovo Phab 2 Pro all set to go official in November

By October 6th, 2016 AT 2:40 PM

The first ever Google Tango phone was slated to launch last month, but Lenovo quietly delayed the launch date. Now, latest reports suggest that the Tango phone, dubbed as Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is all set to debut in November. A representative from Google has given the confirmation.


The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has been made in partnership with Google, and it will be the first ever phone to come with AR and VR technology to sense and project surroundings.

To refresh, at the Lenovo Tech World 2016 in San Francisco, Lenovo had unveiled the Phab 2 Pro with Google’s Tango augmented reality technology. Lenovo Phab 2 Pro comes with a 16MP wide-angle rear camera clubbed with special depth-sensing, which enables it to map out the physical surroundings or project virtual effects in a real-world space. In simple terms, it senses the size of the room or the presence of other people.

At the tech world event, Lenovo demonstrated the Tango technology with a variety of apps, such as VR shooting games, educational app, etc. If Tango fulfills its promise, using Phab2 Pro, customers will be able to download the digital models of coffee tables to see how they would look like in their actual room. Or, it can display information about an artist or a scene depicted in a painting as you stroll through a museum.

According to Lenovo, the device will come loaded with about 25 apps ranging from games to location-based apps to utilities in an exclusive app store and it expects 100 apps to be available by the end of the year. Although Lenovo brought another milestone to the smartphone market, the technology is in its early stage of development. Alongside Tango technology, Lenovo Phab 2 Pro features a whopping 6.4-inch quad HD display and a metal construction. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. Fingerprint scanner, 4000mAh battery, 16MP cam, etc. are the other specs.

Lenovo, vivo, oppo, LeEco, Gionee, Xiaomi, Huawei, etc all Chinese Smartphone companies are clever and make their own UI(user interface) and after 1 or 2 year the spread virus through which phone instantly becomes slow and suddenly anytime gets off. Its a trick by which they make their own market and new phones are always attractive with new features. This has happened me twice, once it was Huawei and other time its xiaomi. So its request to you all don’t use any Chinese products.


Well said.
