We have a lot many times heard about the Project Ara from Google which is likely to bring a modular handset in the market next year. One more thing which very few people might be knowing is that the same team is working simultaneously on another Google project named as Project Tango which aims at making a smartphone or a tablet that makes use of the two rear camera and two sensors thereby creating a 3D model of the surrounding. Few days back the Project Tango tablet appeared on the Play Store but this was only the Developer kit and not at all for the consumer base. The good thing is that we have arrived with some of the specs for the device.

The Project Tango hosts a 7.02inch IPS display with a 1900×1200 pixel resolution having 323ppi density shielded with a protective Gorilla Glass layer. The device hosts a powerful NVIDIA Tegra K1 quad-core chipsets clocked at 2.3GHz and a Kepler GPU having 192 CUDA cores. The device has some excellent memory options with a whopping 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. At the front is a 1MP fixed focus camera with IR LED and the rear hosts a 4MP camera with RGB-IR sensor and 2µm pixels. The rear camera is also accompanied by a motion tracking camera along with a 3D depth sensing sensor. Additionally, the complete tablet will have a good 4960 battery capacity for power-up.

A bit disappointment that might arrive is that the tablet would be running the Android 4.4.2 KitKat and not the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. The dimensions shows it could be 15.6mm thick and weigh 370 grams. Well, who always wants to compete with the thinnest/lightest slates when there is a lot more to add to it. The tablet would be priced somewhere around $1000 and we would bring the complete details once they are out. Check out the videos relating to the Project Tango here.
