Remember the first ever Project Tango-equipped smartphone, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro? Well, that phone has officially been launched in the Philippines. If you’re scratching your head saying “project what now”, let us give you a refresher – Project Tango is a technology platform developed by Alphabet Co’s Google that uses computer vision to enable mobile devices to detect their position relative to the world without using GPS or external signals. This is useful for a number of applications, most notably enhanced augmented reality and positioning.

Lenovo Phab 2 Pro

  • 1.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor (Project Tango optimized)
  • Adreno 510 (Project Tango optimized)
  • 4GB RAM
  • 6.4-inch QHD IPS display, 2560 x 1440 resolution, 2.5D curved glass
  • 64GB expandable storage, up to 256GB via microSD
  • 16-megapixel rear camera, phase detection AF, depth and motion tracking sensors, 2160p video at 30fps
  • 8-megapixel front camera, f/2.2, 1080p video
  • Dual SIM
  • 4G LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, A-GPS, GLONASS
  • Fingerprint sensor, Dolby Atmos / 5.1 Audio Capture, 3 microphones with 360 voice capture, noise-cancelling tech
  • Project Tango device
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 4050mAh battery, Li-Ion, non-removable, Quick Charge

Anyways, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is the first commercial phone to be released with the tech inside, though without useful or killer apps as of yet, Tango is just another fancy feature that you probably won’t be using even if your phone is Tango-certified.

The new device is now out in the market and is priced at Php 24,999.

      1. Project tango ba kamo, tanungin kita all people over the world will use this? No! GPS base pa rin. At it will take time. Kaya ikaw bago ka comment isip muna kung papatok dito sa phils. Take note pang masa na price ang pinas. Bugok.

    1. Spec wise halos mag kaparehas lang talaga sila ng mi mix pero kalokohan yun comparison kasi lumalabas na concept phone to ng google gawa ng lenovo.
      Obviously hindi ito gusto ibenta para sa masa. If price to spec ratio lang ang basehan mo ng pagbili better stick to xiaomi, leeco, zte nubia devices ka na lang.

  1. Add ko lang dun sa bog na bugok, project tango for what? Kadalasan dito sa pinas, more on selfie, post, social media, games? Yung mga sikat na di ganun kakomplikado ang nilalaro, tulad ng ano? Coc, clash royale, pokemon go, etc. Haha. Batuhin kita ng samsung note 7 ko para sumabog sayo. Baka sabihin mo pano ko nakuha note 7, plan sa globe bago istop officially ang releasing. Mi max from the other hand is for gaming and waze para whole day di na need icharge. Anyway ipush mo yan, bka wala ka pa nga pambili nyan.

  2. Kaya ba nitong maka locate na bearing position mismo ang mababasa. Need ko kasi locate mga muhon sa nabili kong lote. Mahal singilan ng mga surveyor eh.

  3. Obvious naman na hindi to para pinoy na nag hahanap lang ng phone na para pang selfie coc games etc.
    Kaya nonsense na i compare yung phone sa mi max na iba ang target market kumpara sa phab 2 pro na more on designers, architects ang target buyers.

    May nag yayabang kasi masyado ng wala naman sa lugar. Wala rin kami pake sa note 7 mo. Thanks.

    1. @ Poof halatang noob ka pagdating sa gadget, di mo ba alam meron third party application na tulad ng Project tango? kung marunong ka lang bugok ka magiisip ka muna bago komento. Lagyan mo naman ng laman yang kokote mo. Wag puro social media. Uso GOOGLE! haha
