ARCore, Google’s software-based augmented reality platform, is now expanding to a handful of additional devices. The company keeps a list of devices that receive support. The list is regularly updated to reflect the new additions that are made. Five additional devices have now received support for Google’s ARCore platform.
These devices include the new flagship smartphones from Huawei, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro to be precise. The devices that are on this list have passed Google’s certification process for ARCore. The certification is important as it ensures a good experience with AR apps. To certify each device, Google checks the quality of the camera, motion sensors, and design architecture to ensure that the performance is up to expectations.
The Samsung Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50, two premium mid-range smartphones that the company launched recently, are on the list as well. The Moto One Vision has received support for ARCore as well.
You may be quite familiar with the Huawei P30/P30 Pro and the Samsung devices. The Moto One Vision sticks out because not much is known about this device. According to a report, this is what Motorola calls its Moto One successor which will be released as the P40 in China.
