The much leaked Lenovo Project Tango phone has finally been officially announced by Lenovo with a on sale date of September.
Lenovo have created a 6.4-inch phone with the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro with a QHD (that’s a 2K resolution) with special sensors built-in that can learn about the environment it is in.
The Tango phone will become more aware of its environment the more you use it and as it gets smarter you can ask it more about the space it is in. The idea is going to appeal to interior decorators, and AR game developers, but at this stage we’re not sure how these features will benefit traditional smartphone customers.

The Phab 2 Pro will cost just $499 which sounds pretty good consider the new technology packed in to the handset, and overall the hardware isn’t too bad for the money.
Pushing the pixels around on that high resolution display is a Snapdragon 652 chipset and 4GB RAM, the front camera is an 8 mega-pixel shooter while the rear cameras are made up of a 16 mega-pixel RGB camera, IR camera and fisheye camera.
There is also a fingerprint scanner, Dolby Atmos audio, a large 4050mAh battery with fast charging and a fingerprint scanner.
Lenovo will be selling the Phab 2 Pro through Best Buy in the U.S from September. We also expect the phone to go on sale in the EU around the same time too.
