Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the first phone to be announced under Google’s Project Tango, seems to have hit a roadblock. As per reports, Lenovo has delayed the launch date of Phab 2 Pro which boasts three rear cameras and one front camera.
The smartphone was scheduled to arrive this summer but now it seems that the release date has been delayed towards the end of this year. On Lenovo’s US online store, the release has been changed from Summer to Fall (autumn). In North America, autumn is usually considered to start with the September equinox and end with the winter solstice (21 or 22 December).

The motion tracking and the depth sensing cameras allows the phone to recognize area and the user in real time to convert the whole world around a user into augmented reality. The phone can sense physical spaces and structures in 3D making augmented reality (AR) experiences possible.
