Lenovo is a company that specializes in all kinds of technology, including smartphones, and although their Lenovo-branded devices don't really make it to the U.S. much, they now own Motorola which sees plenty of U.S. distribution. Today Lenovo has just announced details of their upcoming Tech World 2016 conference which happens June 9th, and at the event, they aim to unveil new mobile technology from Motorola which they state will "dramatically change how people think about and use their most personal devices." Lenovo gives no real specific details on what this technology may be, but they do follow that statement up with the words "in a snap" which may suggest that it has something to do with cameras, or that whatever it will be delivering a fast and snappy experience. Also to be shown off at the conference is the Lenovo Project Tango smartphone.
Project Tango has been one of many different projects that Google has dreamt up over the years, and earlier this year, they officially unveiled that they would be launching a consumer-based Project Tango smartphone in partnership with Lenovo. What's more is that they stated that it would be coming this Summer while the Lenovo CEO had mentioned that July would be the release date, but according to details from Lenovo this morning about their upcoming Tech World conference, the very first consumer-facing Project Tango smartphone will be coming this June instead. More specifically, June 9th which is the day that Lenovo's Tech World Conference begins.
The Project Tango smartphone was announced back at CES this year and since then it's just been a waiting game, but things have apparently been going smoothly in its development process as Lenovo and Google now look to launch it earlier than what was announced before. For those that are unaware, Project Tango harnesses the power of augmented reality and integrates the technology into the smartphone, making it capable of being used in a number of different ways including gaming, mapping environments, and navigation which are just a few examples given by Lenovo in their recent statement about the Tech World conference. Lenovo will also show off new and exciting technology concepts that are a team effort between Lenovo and Motorola engineers, designers, and developers. Lenovo also plans to live stream the keynote beginning at 10AM PST on June 9th. Alongside this news about Tech World 2016, a rumor from earlier this morning states that Lenovo may be looking to take a modular route with the Motorola Moto X4 device.
