At its TechWorld conference Lenovo has not only announced the modular Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones but also the first Google Project Tango enabled device, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. The phone provides an Augmented Reality (AR) experience, thanks to its ability to sense 3D-motion and geometry. It can capture 3D-scans of its surroundings and use the data to create 3D-maps, recognize places or track objects. The technology can project virtual effects in real-world spaces, help navigate indoor areas or provide information about objects it has recognized. 

To achieve this the Phab2 Pro has a total of four cameras. In addition to the 8MP front module and the 16MP rear camera there are a depth and a motion tracking camera, both also located on the back. Underneath the 6.4" Quad-HD IPS display there is a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 652 chipset running Android 6.0. 4GB RAM and 64GB of microSD-expandable storage are on board as well, along with a fingerprint reader and Dolby Atmos surround sound technology. Energy is provided by a 4,050 mAh battery. All the high-end technology is nicely wrapped up in metal unibody that is available in gold or silver. 

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro will be available to purchase online in August and one month later in stores globally. In the US it will cost $499. Lenovo promises that by the time of shipping a special Tango App Store will contain around 25 apps and is planning to expand this number to 100 by the end of the year. The new technology certainly looks promising, and it will be interesting to see how it catches on with consumers and developers. Additional information on how Tango works on the Phab2 Pro can be found in the Lenovo promotional video below.
