CES has begun and we are looking at a variety of new announcements. Lenovo has just announced an update for its Tango enabled smartphone, Phab 2 Pro. The smartphone was announced last year and recently started shipping to various countries.
Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is the latest smartphone by Lenovo to go on sale for $499.99. In fact, the device is the first one that is powered by Google Tango framework which relies on depth sensing to create seamless Augmented reality figures on the screen.
After a long wait, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, or better known as the first Tango smartphone, is now available online.
The Lenovo US store page for the Phab 2 Pro has been changed from “coming this summer" to "coming this fall." This means that the handset will now be available between September and December.
A Lenovo smartphone unveiled Thursday will be clever enough to grasp your physical surroundings - such as the room's size and the presence of other people - and potentially transform how we interact with e-commerce, education and gaming.
Movidius' chips already power Google's Project Tango hardware. However, with Lenovo's partnership things deviate a bit.
