The Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be one of the first smartphones based on Google’s Tango technology and will allow you to map in 3D space around it and interact with the elements of the real world on the screen. For example, in video games it is perfect for an immersive or for navigation functions / indoor mapping, which could serve to receive information within structures such as stations, airports and other hospitality buildings or take a look at the restructuring of an environment before you even begin.
