Lenovo may unveil its Project Tango device on June 9, could feature 6.4-inch screen
Back in January, at CES 2016, Lenovo and Google announced that they would be joining forces to develop a Project Tango-based device. In case you have forgotten about Google's ambitious undertaking, Project Tango aims to push 3D mapping and augmented reality to the next level on mobile devices, without using GPS and other external signals.

Ahead of the expected official announcement of the device on June 9, notorious leak meister Evan Blass tweeted that what Lenovo and Google might have in stock could be a 6.4-inch phablet with a Quad HD screen:

Will Evan turn out right once again? We'll know for sure at this week's Lenovo Tech World event.

Project Tango devices are to be loaded with cameras, as last year's prototype tablets featured a 4MP rear camera, 180-degree fish eye lens, a front-facing camera with 120-degree filed of vision and a depth camera shooting at 180 x 320 pixels. All those are needed for the ambitious 3D mapping and measurement capabilities that Google is envisioning for future devices built on the platform.

Back at CES, Lenovo and Google announced that the new device will be priced at no more than $500. At this price point, and with such a feature set, the purported phablet might turn out to be a great for both professional needs and entertainment.
