Project Tango and Lenovo at MWC 2016 Gallery

Google’s Project Tango collaboration with Lenovo will bring a new and exciting hyper-location-aware smartphone to the market in the summer of 2016, but while the phone itself isn’t ready for public view, the two companies have been showing off the latest developments in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress.

Tango took over the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya to demonstrate how a Tango device could guide you around the museum and unlock new information about the artwork it contains. While the demo was carried out on Google’s existing Tango developer device, an NVIDIA-powered tablet, the concept will be carried over to Lenovo’s upcoming Snapdragon-based phone.

That’s expected to have a sub-6.5-inch display and cost under $500, unlocked, when it reaches the market.
