Smartphone manufacturing giant Lenovo has joined hands to manufacture a smartphone that will have the ability to change the way people see and understand the physical world around them. The device will be developed as a part of Google’s Project Tango and will have sensors that will identify and understand motion, location, gestures and objects in real as well as virtual worlds.
The upcoming smartphone does not have a name yet and has a screen size that is under 6.5 inches and will be priced under US$500. The device is expected to hit the market in summer 2016. The announcement was made by Lenovo at a press conference at CES on January 7, 2016. One of the important feature of the device includes, when the device is switched on, the screen will show information on the user’s location and objects in view.
The smartphone will also be able to recognize the rooms in the houses, offices, outdoor and other locations. Moreover the device will also be able to recognize when the person is moving up and down, left and right, backward and forward. The sensors in the device will also recognize the shapes and objects that are close by.
The above features will be available in the smartphone only if the applications are written.
