So far, there’s only been one Project Tango handset – the ambitious, but ill-received Lenovo’s Phab 2 Pro, which debuted late last year to middling reviews. And now, Qualcomm just leaked the follow-up. Whoops.
According to Qualcomm, the Asus Zenphone VR will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset. This meaty processor powers the Google Pixel and the bog-standard Asus Zenphone 3.It will also ship with both Daydream and Tango capabilities,and will support Daydream VR versions of Google Street View, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and HBO, as well as games like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Need for Speed, and Gunjack 2.
News about the device has been trickling out for a while now, and earlier today VentureBeat’s Evan ‘evleaks’ Blass tweeted what purports to be a photo of the device. When Asus officially unveils the phone later this week, it’s unlikely there will be any surprises.
