According to Blass, the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro could be the first commercially available Project Tango device. While other details such as the chipset, RAM, cameras and OS are currently missing, he did mention that the device is likely to flaunt a 6.4-inch QHD display. The Project Tango device is expected to be priced under $500 (which is approximately Rs 33,500).
For those unfamiliar with Project Tango, it uses complex selection of cameras and sensors to create 3D maps of the user s surroundings in real-time. One of the tablets that Google had showcased back in 2014 featured dual-cameras at the back along with an infrared depth sensor to precisely click photos of objects in 3D.
Besides the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, Lenovo is widely expected to unveil two new Motorola smartphones. The company recently applied for Moto Z trademark in the US and is expected to launch the Moto Z Style and Moto Z Play smartphones at the event. From the leaked photos, a 16 pin connector socket is also visible at the back of these smartphones, hinting at some modular functionality.
Over the past couple of weeks, we have come across these snap on modular components called Moto Mods that would bring additional functionality to the smartphones. These could be an external camera module with physical shutter release button, zoom lens and a Xenon flash.
Other accessories could be external speakers, battery case and more. With just two days to go, we are really excited to see what Lenovo has to announce at the event. As always, we will keep you posted and bring live updated from the event as and when the products are announced.
