Lenovo unveiled the Phab 2 Pro at the Lenovo Tech World 2016. Priced at USD 500 the phone is expected to be available globally in September.
The Phab 2 Pro comes equipped with Google's 3-year-old Project Tango, a platform that uses computer vision to enable mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to detect their position relative to the world around them without using GPS or other external signals. Google has produced two devices to demonstrate the Project Tango technology: the Peanut phone (no longer available) and the Yellowstone 7-inch tablet. More than 3,000 of these devices had been sold as of June 2015. Project Tango enables application developers to create user experiences that include indoor navigation, 3D mapping, measurement of physical spaces, recognition of known environments, augmented reality, and windows into virtual 3D worlds.
