26 more phones support Google's AR based platform; is your phone one of them?
ARCore is Google's Augmented Reality platform used by developers to create AR experiences for iOS and Android users. ARCore has three major capabilities that help layer virtual content over real-life images sourced from the cameras on your phone. These capabilities include Motion Tracking which allows the phone to figure out where it is in relation to the world. With Environmental understanding, the phone can determine the size and location of all types of surfaces including the ground, walls, and even a kitchen table. And with Light estimation, the phone can estimate the current lighting conditions of the nearby environment.

When a phone passes Google's certification process, it is considered to be an ARCore supported device. Google says that this is important because it gives the users of each supported device a consistent AR experience regardless of which phone is being used as long as that phone is an ARCore supported device. To qualify as such, a phone needs to run Android 7.0 Nougat and later or iOS 11 and up.

Google has updated the list of phones that support ARCore and the newest additions include the following handsets :

  • Asus ROG Phone III
  • Nokia 8.3 5G
  • Infinix Mobile Zero 8
  • LG K71
  • moto g⁹ play
