Lenovo Moto Z expected to get a Tango 3D camera
While the first Google Tango handset was manufactured by Lenovo, it looks like the company has plans to add augmented reality capabilities to its modular smartphones as well. The details are not public yet, but by the looks of it, the arrival of a Moto Mod Tango 3D camera seems almost certain.
During a press event that took place yesterday, Motorola's CEO Aymar de Lencquesaing said that "The tablet folks [at Lenovo] did a phablet and worked with Google, the Tango team, to come out with a Tango phablet. Going forward, we'll have to address as a group how do we reconcile the products that are at the fringe? We're likely to have a Tango module to basically enable the Z to have Tango functionality."
The first Tango-capable handset is the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro - a $499.99 USD, 6.4-inch Android phablet that should have arrived this summer, but only managed to go on sale last month. The Moto Z would become the second such device once the Moto Mod with Tango 3D capabilities shows up. However, various rumors also mentioned that Asus might unveil its own Tango smartphone next month, during CES 2017.
