Google’s Tango on Lenovo Phab 2 Pro

By : |November 3, 2016 0

It takes two to Tango, and that is true in the case of Google and Lenovo. The tech giant impressed the world with its 3D-sending Tango camera technology, and its Lenovo why you can finally get to use it.

Lenovo has unveiled Phab 2 Pro, the first phone with Google’s 3D-sensing Tango camera technology at its core. It’s a technology that is not e taken for granted. The phone can let you see how a new piece of furniture might actually fit in your home, or play advanced Pokemon Go- like augmented reality games in the real world. Just point the camera at an object and it will automatically measure it.

The phone has some impressive consumer-grade specs – a huge 6.4-inch screen and a big battery, all for a relatively competitive price of $499. And this one is not going to be the only device in the market with Google’s coveted technology. The company has said that Phab 2 Pro is just the first of many Tango phones headed to market in 2017.

Google Tango boss Johnny Lee says that it is just the beginning for the technology. Thanks to the success of Pokemon Go, augmented reality capabilities are increasingly gaining traction. Other manufacturers aren’t waiting to see if Lenovo’s phone sells well before it produces its own Tango phones, Lee confirms.

“We should think of Tango as a feature like GPS, not something that’s technically necessary for a phone, but a feature that becomes hard to imagine living without,” Lee, who also worked on the Microsoft Kinect,
says.

The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is currently available in the United States, and is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile.
