Hardware information



Q. Where is the Mapper App?
A. Project Tango Constructor was released summer 2015. TangoScanView can view Constructor files on most Android devices.

Q. Is there a warranty?
A. A 1-year warranty was introduced summer 2015. Rooting may invalidate the warranty. Unlocking the bootloader definitely does.

Q. Is there a phone?
A. The first Project Tango device was a handset - codename "Peanut". A Snapdragon 810 developer handset was announced and then cancelled. Intel produced an Atom-based 6" phablet with RealSense and Project Tango. Lenovo are producing the first consumer device in summer 2016.

Q. Which carriers are supported with the SIM card?
A. T-Mobile US and Project Fi confirmed. Yellowstone uses the same NB106-N radio as the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet. See supported bands.
