Lenovo’s Tango-integrated Phab 2 Pro gets delayed

By : |September 14, 2016 0

Remember Google’s Project Tango, announced a couple of years back that lets a gadget map out three-dimensional spaces. The tech that sounds so interesting was to arrive embedded in a smartphone this month from Lenovo but seems like things have been delayed.

Lenovo had announced the Phab 2 Pro with Google in June, and had then said the smartphone would hit retail shelves by September. The store page for the Phab 2 Pro has been adjusted from “coming this summer” to “coming this fall.”

The company has also said that it will release the new device only in Asia Pacific market where it previously launched smartphones, including Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The Phab 2 Pro, a Project Tango handset, comes with four cameras that act like sensors allowing the phone to process the information around them through three different technologies: motion tracking, area learning, depth perception.

The device is supposed to recognize a room or an environment where another similar device was since it makes use of the area learning technology. Also, the smartphone can sense the shape of the world around it with the help of the depth perception technology. The core of this technology is a time-of-flight sensor that sends infrared beams to an object and calculates how far the phone is from that object by the time it takes the beam to get there and back.

It also packs Dolby Audio 5.1 Capture technology for recording 3D sound. It’s also said to be the first smartphone to be able to record a 360-degree video with Dolby 5.1 stereo capture. Lenovo has also mentioned a suite of 25 apps that will be available in its Tango store pre-installed on the Phab 2 Pro.
