The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro is the first smartphone in the world with technology Tango . Google has promised the arrival of other devices, even with the best technical specifications, but in the coming months there may be an equally viable alternative. The President of Motorola Mobility, Aymar de Lencquesaing, said that the company will offer probably a Tango module for existing Moto Z . No need to buy a new smartphone to take advantage of augmented reality functionality.
The Chinese manufacturer and its US subsidiary have therefore decided to focus on this innovative technology. The Motorola executive did not provide details, only assuming the eventual arrival of Moto Mods that will add the necessary components to the models of the Z series Moto Besides the 16 megapixel camera on the back of Lenovo Phab 2 Pro there are also a depth sensor and a motion sensor, through which you can make the indoor scanning in real time and overlay digital elements to real objects, taking advantage of augmented reality .
It is not known if the module is also compatible with the Moto Z Play because its hardware equipment may be insufficient. No problem for the other two models in the series ( Moto Z and Moto Z Force ). In any case it is certainly a more flexible solution, since the user can activate the AR functionality only when needed. But everything will depend on the cost of the module.
Before issuing a new Moto Mods would be appropriate to increase the number of compatible apps rather limited today. The company should also get more support from developers and third-party manufacturers.
