At CES 2016, Google and Lenovo have announced plans to team up to create the first consumer-ready smartphone featuring Project Tango tech. Although the smartphone is still in the prototype phase, the image above shows off renderings of what the phone may end up looking like when it's ready for consumers.
And that's not all: to mark the occasion, Google is giving developers the opportunity to submit ideas for gaming and utility apps using Project Tango's augmented reality tech, with Google selecting the best ideas and providing funding and engineering support to make them happen. The finished apps will then be featured on the final Lenovo device once it ships.
The submission period is open through February 15, and there are a number of materials Google is requiring developers to submit with their ideas. For the full list, be sure to check out Google's announcement post at the source link below. Selected developers will be contacted by March 15. There's no word on when we can expect the final product from Lenovo to go on sale.
