First revealed back in MWC 2016, the world’s first Tango smartphone is now available for sale abroad. The device was originally meant to go on sale in August but numerous delays finally pushed the release date to 1 November.
It is the first commercially available device from the Project Tango stable which focuses on Augmented Reality (AR) apps. 35 AR apps are already available in the Google Play store which have been built specially for the device. These include apps to paint and draw on any surface, playing with virtual pets, Domino world game, home item measurement and item visualiser. Lenovo hopes to populate the store with atleast 100 apps by the end of the year.
The Phab2 Pro is equipped with a depth-sensing IR camera and motion tracking camera. The speakers sport Dolby Atmos audio technology along with Dolby Audio 5.1 surround capture technology capable of recording 3D sound. The battery is slated to deliver 15 hours of battery life.
