Yesterday, the world’s first Tango smartphone and the first phone to get the new AR capabilities from Google — the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro — was officially launched.
Recall that the Phab 2 Pro bears a camera and sensor setup to enable motion tracking, depth perception, and area learning. It comes with a 6.4-inch QHD IPS display and a total of four cameras — an 8MP front camera, a 16MP rear camera, a depth-sensing infrared camera with an imager and an emitter, as well as a motion tracking camera. Other specs include:
8 MP fixed focus, F2.2 aperture, 1.4 um big pixel
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 652 processor built for Tango
|SIM: Dual slots|
Nano SIM & microSD (Up to 128 GB)
Android 6.0, Marshmallow
It is currently available via Lenovo’s US site for the price of $499.99.
Unfortunately, we have no idea when it would be available in this part of the world, but based on past trends, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro might not have a Nigeria launch, or it might take a while to get here.
Based on initial reviews from platforms like CNET, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro does seem like a great device, although, Sean Hollister of CNET believes that the “Tango technology itself still feels a little rough around the edges.”
Despite this shortcoming, I am super anxious to get my hands on the first-ever Tango device.
