Qualcomm, one of the world’s biggest mobile chipset manufacturers, has recently disclosed its plans to develop a smartphone with Google. The Project Tango smartphone will feature 3D motion-tracking capabilities and will be powered by Snapdragon 810 SoC (Qualcomm‘s flagship).
This announcement was made shortly after the Project Tango tablet was put on sale by Google on Google Store at half its original price.
Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group, previously a part of Motorola Mobility, will develop Project Tango. Its goal is to “give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.”
It is expected that the Project Tango smartphone will be equipped with a camera, gyroscope, and accelerometer. Developers will also be provided access to the Qualcomm Developer Network, where they can enhance the performance of Android apps by taking advantage of features included in the premium-tier Snapdragon 810 processor.
Qualcomm added that the smartphone will be released later this summer.
