Lenovo Phab 2 Pro Tango smartphone delayed until fall

Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro, the first smartphone to feature Googe’s 3D-mapping Tango technology, was supposed to launch this month. Now it looks like the device won’t actually arrive until sometime this fall.

The company recently updated its product page, replacing the words “coming this summer” with “coming this fall.” That definitely sounds like a delay, but Lenovo isn’t offering much information on when the Phab 2 Pro will actually arrive. It could potentially launch as soon as later this month, but we could also end up waiting until mid-December.

On the plus side, the rest of the Phab 2 Pro page looks the same. The price hasn’t changed from $499 and the device still packs plenty of power with a huge 6.4-inch Quad HD display, a 4050mAh battery, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also sports a mid-range Snapdragon 652 chip that’s optimized for Tango.

At the moment, there’s no way to get your hands on the 3D-mapping technology. Google is no longer selling its Tango tablet and the Phab 2 Pro is a no show for now. Hopefully, it won’t be too much longer before the smartphone launches and you can experience Tango at home.
