At the ongoing Google I/O developer event, Google and LG have jointly announced a Project Tango based device, with launch scheduled for some time in 2015. Details on the hardware weren’t provided, but going by the recently unveiled developer tablet, we don’t think it will be too different.
When the idea of Project Tango was first introduced to the world, it was with a smartphone. But we’re slowly seeing that evolve into tablets given the emphasis on gaming and hardware prowess. Google and LG have sadly failed to clarify if this new device will be a tablet or a smartphone, so we’ll have to wait a few more months to get official confirmation.
It’s not surprising to see LG being one of Google’s first hardware partners for the Project Tango concept considering the history of the two companies with Nexus devices. This LG Project Tango device is most likely going to be a tablet, although we won’t be surprised if it’s a phone.
