Lenovo unveils 1st tango-enabled smartphone
ISLAMABAD—Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today launched the much anticipated PHAB2Pro– the world’s first Tango-enabled smartphone to enable augmented reality experiences – plus the dual-camera PHAB2 Plus and full-sized PHAB2 smartphones.
Unlike any other phone, the PHAB2 Pro, powered by Tango technology–a set of sensors and software from Google that senses and mapsits surroundings–makesa host of cutting-edge smartphone augmented reality (AR)experiences possible. For example, using AR apps, students can place true-to-scale virtual dinosaurs in their classrooms and enhance their learning through AR data overlays that appear while they walk around the creatures.
AR gaming experiences let you play virtual dominos on your kitchen table, raise a digital pet in your bedroom and fight back swarms of aliens invading your house. With Tango technology the PHAB2 Pro can even begin to change the way people think about mapping indoor spaces to create new experiences like future augmented reality museum tours via the GuidiGO app.
