AndroidPolice.com did a teardown of the recent version of Google ARCore (v1.4) app that allows use of augmented reality apps on supported Android devices. A device that got supported with the latest version of ARCore is HMD’s last year’s flagship – the Nokia 8. Other Nokia devices that support ARCore are Nokia 6.1, 7 plus and 8 Sirocco, confirmed by Google’s official support site.
Another interesting info AndroidPolice found related to HMD is that an unannounced Nokia device also got support for ARCore with the latest version of the app. The supported device is Nokia Phoenix, we saw mentioned multiple times during past weeks.
HMD’s CPO Juho Sarvikas confirmed ARCore support for Nokia 8 via Twitter and added that HMD is still working on FaceUnlock feature for Nokia 8.
Thanks Amal for the tip. 🙂
