Google Pixel 5, realme 7i, and 11 more devices become ARCore certified

As people are staying at home most of the time in this pandemic era the importance of augmented reality has increased incredibly. AR has not been as novel as it was some years ago but this does not mean that Google is not expanding its ARCore SDK to more devices in order to enable them to flawlessly access AR experiences like the virtual zoo.

Adding of a device into the ARCore list means that Google has certified it to ensure that the functions like CPU, camera and various other sensors work as are expected in the AR-capable apps. There are thirteen new devices that Google has tested and approved to be added into the list. These thirteen devices are as follows

  • Google Pixel 5
  • Google ixel 4a 5G
  • relame 7i
  • Asis Zenfone 7/7 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy A20e
  • LG WING 5G
  • Realmi X7 Pro 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A7
  • Sharp AQUOS zero5G basic
  • Sharp AQUOS zero5G basic DX
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S

Google recently pivoted away from the Playground which was the AR-powered app for Pixel devices. But Google has continued to invest in enhancing as well as adding new AR experiences like museum exhibits and various other 3D objects. This is the 2nd time in this month that Google has updated the list so it is clear that ARCore may not be the something new in the arena and it is not the one to be sidelined at the moment.
