MWC 2016 | Lenovo and Google team up for a Project Tango smartphone
Not long ago, we heard about Lenovo working on a Project Tango smartphone that would launch later this year. Back then, it was still unknown if Lenovo will just make this device for Google or it will launch as a team effort. Now, the two tech giants announced their partnership at MWC and we are one step closer to seeing the device hit the market.
Until now, the Project Tango initiative produced two devices - the Tango Tablet and the Intel Project Tango phone. Unfortunately, none of these two managed to attract the attention of the public. While its predecessors did not aim the average consumer, either, the upcoming Project Tango handset by Lenovo and Google will try to break the ice this summer.
According to Lenovo's marketing director and lead of the company's team in charge of the Tango project, "It's starting at $500. So it's not a thousand dollars, it's not five thousand dollars." The features of the device will focus on AR/VR, and it might give Samsung's Gear VR a run for the money. Unfortunately, there are still a few months left until this new Project Tango device is ready to hit the market, so stay tuned. We will surely hear more about it sooner than expected.
