Lenovo To Launch Project Tango Phone This Summer

Lenovo is going to be the first manufacturer to market a smartphone by using Project Tango, which is supposedly to be launched by this summer.
 
We do not yet know the details of this particular smartphone, but Lenovo, at a CES press event, has said that the phone will be around 6.5 inches, will run on a Qualcomm processor, and will cost around $500.
 
The sensor and the camera, required for Project Tango to work, will be placed vertically on the top third of the back of the phone.
 
Google Advanced Technology and Project (ATAP) Group, in February 2014, announced Project Tango, which was designed to track 3D motion of the device, while simultaneously creating a map of the surrounding environment.
 
Google kept a firm hold onthe ATAP group, even when it sold Motorola to Lenovo for $2.9 billion in 2014.
 
The company has previously sold Project Tango developer tablets which ran on Android. It used a Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 4 GB of memory, and 128 GB of storage capacity. The device used standard mobile sensors, such as gyroscope and accelerometer, along with motion tracking camera and infrared sensor.
 
Google and Lenovo have also announced the launch ofan app incubator program, where developers will be able to submit app ideas which use Tango. Selected apps will be funded, pre-installed, and featured on the device. The submissions for the app incubator will close on February 15.
 
The new Tango handset will be a Lenovo-branded device.
