The DQWeek (Kolkata) - - CHAN­NEL BO­NANZA - DQW NEWS BUREAU New Delhi

Len­ovoPhab2 Pro, the world’s first Project Tan­goen­abled smart­phone, has landed in In­dia. Priced at Rs. 29,990, the phone will be ex­clu­sively made avail­able on Flip­kart, start­ing from Jan­uary 20. The smart­phone was first an­nounced at Len­ovo’s Tech World Congress in San Fran­cisco last year.

Google’s Tango tech­nol­ogy is a plat­form that al­lows mo­bile de­vice to per­ceive space and depth ex­actly like hu­mans do. Ba­si­cally, the Tango tech­nol­ogy will en­able de­vices to in­ter­act with the 3D en­vi­ron­ment around them. That’s prob­a­bly the rea­son why the Phab2 Pro has spe­cial depth-sens­ing cam­eras and sen­sors to al­low it to use aug­mented re­al­ity. With a de­vice like the Phab2 Pro, you can ac­tu­ally sense space and mo­tion – and vi­su­al­ize sur­round­ing ob­jects.

The Phab2 Pro fea­tures a 6.4-inch dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 2560×1440 pix­els. It is pow­ered by a Qual­comm Snap­dragon 652 pro­ces­sor paired with 4GB RAM, 64GB of in­ter­nal stor­age, mi­croSD sup­port (up to 128GB), and a 4,050mAh bat­tery. There’s also a 16MP rear cam­era, depth-cam­era, and a mo­tion cam­era on the back. The selfie cam­era is packed at 8MP. It also fea­tures Dolby At­mos sur­round sound and Dolby At­mos Cap­ture 5.1 that al­lows 5.1 record­ing sound. The phone runs on An­droid 6.0 Marsh­mal­low, and there’s no up­date when Len­ovo plans to up­date the de­vice to the lat­est An­droid 7.0 i.e Nougat. Tango opens a whole new world and its po­ten­tial is im­mense. It al­lows users to vi­su­al­ize fur­ni­ture or cars, just by point­ing a Tango-cer­ti­fied de­vice; even walk about a mu­seum for that mat­ter. Other than Len­ovo, Asus is an­other smart­phone maker that has shown in­ter­est in Google’s 3D-sens­ing tech­nol­ogy. The ZenFone AR, which was an­nounced at CES 2017, is the first smart­phone to fea­ture Google’s Project Tango and Day­dream VR in one de­vice.
