Remember the Google and Lenovo partnership announcement at CES 2016 in January that the two were working on a Project Tango smartphone? The two are set to keep their promise and Lenovo is poised to debut the first-ever Project Tango smartphone, dubbed the the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, in a couple of days.

The consumer-friendly handset is expected to be unveiled at the Lenovo Tech World event slated for Thursday, June 9. Prior to its official launch, well-known tipster Evan Blass - who goes by the Twitter handle @evleaks and is on the money when it comes to leaks - has spilled the beans on the mysterious Project Tango smartphone from Lenovo.

Blass tweeted that the Project Tango Lenovo smartphone will be called PHAB2 Pro. The name is seemingly an appropriate one as the handset will reportedly tout a massive 6.4-inch QuadHD display.

For the uninitiated, Project Tango deploys a wide variety of cameras and sensors, which enables users to map their position/3D space in real time. The project also strives to offer users a consumer-friendly AR experience on their smartphone.

"Project Tango combines 3D motion tracking with depth sensing to give your mobile device the ability to know where it is and how it moves through space," states Lenovo.

The display specs seem to be in line with Google's assertions that the screen size for the Project Tango smartphone will be less than 6.5 inches.

In January, Intel's RealSense smartphone that uses Project Tango technology went up for preorder. This smartphone touts a 6-inch screen size. The 6.4-inch screen on the alleged PHAB2 Pro would suggest that Lenovo is upping the ante and targeting a bigger display to lure more consumers who could gravitate toward the Intel RealSense.

However, apart from the purported name and the 6.4-inch screen size for the impending Project Tango smartphone from Lenovo, Blass did not disclose any other tidbits.

We can wager a guess that the Lenovo offering will be slightly expensive than the Intel RealSense - which is priced at $400 - and may be priced in the $400-$500 range.
