Google’s Tango 3D camera technology which is currently present on Lenovo’s Phab2 Pro is expected to land on Motorola’s Moto Z. Aymar de Lencquesaing, Chairman and President of Motorola Mobile business, revealed at a press event that the Moto Z might get Project Tango support using a Mod.
“Augmented reality on a phone is a technology that’s likely to stick. Of course we’ll follow, or lead, the market in this area”, de Lencquesaing added. For those unaware, Project Tango combines the camera, gyroscope, and accelerometer to estimate six degree of freedom motion tracking, providing you the ability to track 3D motion of a device while simultaneously creating a map of the environment. Lenovo, which owns Motorola, debuted the Phab 2 Pro in June 2016 as the world’s first commercial Google Tango device.
The highlight of Moto Z is its support for MotoMods which include Moto Insta-Share Projector, JBL SoundBoost, Moto Shells, and instant Power Pack.
