Google's Project Tango initiative and the first tablet that uses this technology have been around for a while, but it looks like the first smartphone capable to track its 3D motion and create a map of its surroundings will hit the market later this year as well. Lenovo made it official at CES that its Project Tango-driven handset will launch in mid-2016 although they did not reveal many details.

However, the Chinese company revealed that this handset will cost less than $500 USD and will use a Qualcomm processor. Lenovo also mentioned that the world's first Project Tango smartphone will have a screen smaller than 6.5 inches, with all the sensors and cameras required by this 3D tracking and mapping technology being placed vertically in the top third of the device.

Lenovo did not chose a final layout for the device yet and is currently working with no less than five designs. Google also announced an app incubator program to make the platform attractive to developers and the best apps will be pre-loaded on the Lenovo handset. It is not clear yet if this will be a Google device solely made by Lenovo or other OEMs will build it as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
