During this year’sin January, Lenovo announced that it signed a partnership with Google on developing a Project Tango phone. Since them, Lenovo has stated that the company will be unveiling the device during , just a few days from now.
Specs of the upcoming smartphone seem to have leaked online, with Evan Blass fromreporting that the device will come with a 6.4-inch QHD screen. This is in line with the official statements made during CES 2016, when Lenovo said that the Project Tango phone would have a screen smaller than 6.5 inches.
A 6.4-inch display seems a bit large, considering that the Nexus 6 has 5.96 inches and does seem a bit uncomfortable to some users. The technology allows devices to map the 3D space around users in real time and requires a number of cameras and sensors to do so.
Intel released thewith Project Tango technology earlier this year, and it carried a 6.0-inch display, which means that Lenovo is betting on a larger screen to make its smartphone more attractive to users than the RealSense by Intel.
This is just speculation at this point, since Evan Blass hasn’t provided any other details on specs, but has mentioned that Lenovo’s Project Tango smartphone will be named Lenovo PHAB2 Pro.
Lenovo PHAB2 Pro will sell for the price of $500 (€439)
Pricing of the handset has yet to be confirmed, but it’s expected to fall somewhere under $500 (€439), considerably more expensive than RealSense’s price of just $400 (€351). RealSense Smartphone came with 2GB of RAM and Intel Gen 8 graphics.
It also featured an 8MP camera on the back and a 2MP one on the front. The depth camera was designed to capture data for 3D scanning of objects. Project Tango technology allows users to create 3D maps of indoor locations.
Lenovo is set on unveiling the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro with Project Tango technology on June 9, during Tech World.
