Google's first Project Tango smartphone -- Lenovo Phab2 Pro -- set to hit US in

According to a CNET report, Google is apparently set to launch its first project Tango smartphone in the US in November. The forthcoming smartphone will be the Lenovo Phab2 Pro handset, which will likely cost $499, unlocked.

The imminent launch of the Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone, underscoring Google's Project Tango effort to provide 3D mapping in a handset, will come after a few months’ delay. The handset was initially scheduled for release as Google's first Project Tango smartphone in summer this year. However, the release was delayed to a vague "fall" launch, shrouding Project Tango in uncertainty.

With the delay in the launch of Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone triggering speculations that Project Tango may never see the light of day, the recently-released CNET report has revealed that Google's Clay Bavor has confirmed that Project Tango's Lenovo Phab2 Pro handset is all set to launch in the US next month.

The Lenovo Phab2 Pro will be a massive phablet -- smartphone-cum-tablet -- with a massive 6.4-inch display and will boast 3D mapping capabilities. The device will be equipped with a Snapdragon 652 processor which has been specifically optimized for Tango apps.

Some of the other noteworthy features of Project Tango's Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone include 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage capacity, with microSD support to expand storage to up to 126GB. The handset will run Android OS version 6.0 ‘Marshmallow.’
