Smartphones Finally Getting Even Smarter With AR Integrate Technology

Since the release of the first generation iPhone back in 2007, it only took less than 10 years for the market to become extremely saturated with various types of smartphones and apps.


Apps that existed two years ago are no longer around. Is there anyone out there still playing Angry Bird? If you are like me, the only thing that made much of a specification difference between my iPhone 4, 5, and 6 is really just the screen size.


It feels like smartphone users are arriving a tipping point where people are just using phones with very similar specification and is hungry for something disruptive.


Well, the good new is that Lenovo will be rolling out their new AR integrated smartphone, the world’s first Tango-enabled smartphone.

The Phab 2 Pro will be priced at 500USD, and is due to release in September 2016. It will be the first Lenovo-branded photo to feature in the United States.



Tango will be releasing a series of new capabilities, such as the ability to allow users to project objects onto any types of surface as part of the game or app.

Aside from all the latest features from the modern Android phone, the quad HD 6.4-inch display on the Phab 2 Pro is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 processor, with a 16-megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM, and fingerprint scanner.


What sets this Phab 2 Pro apart from the rest of the Android phone is really the Tango-enabled technology, where the depth-sensing 3D camera system brings a wide-angle camera, and the capability to track, map and project virtual objects all around the user’s environment.
