Google's augmented reality tech, Tango, might be headed to the Moto Z with a little help from the smartphone's ability to attach Mods.
The Chairman and President of Motorola Mobile business, Aymar de Lencquesaing, revealed at a press event that the Moto Z might get Project Tango support using a Mod. Google Tango makes use of specialized hardware for motion tracking, depth sensing and 3D mapping of objects. These components will possibly be integrated into the Mod.
Since, Lenovo has already launched the Phab 2 Pro phablet in collaboration with Google, the company is better positioned at introducing support for the technology in more devices. Aymar also said that, "Augmented reality on a phone is a technology that's likely to stick. Of course we'll follow, or lead, the market in this area."
Moto Z users will certainly be excited for a Tango Mod, since the modular ability of the smartphone hasn't received much support from third-party hardware makers, and an augmented reality Mod will be something innovative.
