Lenovo’s Project Tango smartphone has arrived in TENAA this week giving confirmation that the specialist handset will go on sale in China and other markets.

Project Tango, ran by Google and its partners, sees Android phones (and tablets we suppose) learn the environment that they are in via additional external sensor. The idea is that the phones learn their environment and can be used in a range of innovative new ways (some have suggest in architecture while gaming is another use of the technology).

So far the only Project Tango product that has been seen by the public is a Lenovo device, and now that Lenovo phone has just been sighted at TENAA, confirming a launch for the device in China.

The TENAA details confirm that the phone has 3 rear cameras (the main a 16 mega-pixel,and the others used for depth and motion tracking for the handset to create a 3D model of its environment).

TENAA also confirms the phone’s dimensions as 179.88 x 88.57 x 11.15mm and a staggering weight of 620g!

Upfront is a 6.4-inch 2K display, and 8 mega-pixel camera (bringing the total of camera to 4). The heavy weight phone also has a 4050mAh battery, Snapdragon 652 chipset, 4GB RAM, 64GB memory and runs Android 6.0.1.

Seeing the Lenovo Tango phone at TENAA at this stage would mean that the phone should be released in China in the coming weeks. Pricing is expected to be as staggering as the weight is!

    This is twice as heavy as my 7.9 inch tablet. This is going to be a behemoth!

            For me anything over 6 is a tablet. 5.5 to 5.7 is ideal for me.

    Been watching this one for a while and have read some early ‘hands on’ reviews. Don’t think the weight is accurate as I’m sure it’s nearer 220g if memory seves me right. As for the price in Europe it’s supposed to be $499. Intersting to see how it’s priced in China and hopefully other Chinese manufacturers will follow shortly with much better pricing!!!

    Dunno who’s gonna buy this in a near future, except android software companies for testing purpose. There is no application using this technology right now (or i missed something).
