For this certification process, Google ARCore took into consideration a lot of factors. These include the device’s camera, motion sensors, design, and all-around performance. To ensure the last factor mentioned is intact, ARCore takes into consideration the device’s CPU to see if it meets the requirements.
Taking into consideration, the CPU is essential since it is the brain of the entire device. ARCore also says that they are constantly working with various brands to ensure that their devices meet the augmented reality requirements. These brands produce devices in various price segments, ranging from flagship to budget options.
The Google Pixel 6a, 7, and 7 Pro are not the only devices to recently get ARCore support. Joining the list of devices with ARCore support are options from various smartphone manufacturing brands. Asides from the Google Pixel devices, there are other new entries from Infinix, Lenovo, Motorola, OPPO, Sharp, Sony, Xiaomi, and ZTE.
A few other Chinese manufacturers like Fujitsu, FCNT, and Zebra. All devices from these brands retail at various prices, hence bringing AR integration to users regardless of their budget. In the coming months, more devices will also get ARCore support, bringing augmented reality to more people.
