Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 plus support Google’s ARCore now *Update*
*Update* Nokia 6.1 plus is out from the list
If you want to implement live dinosaurs in your camera frame, you will have to use Google’s ARCore app. ARCore, for developers entertaining and fun software, enables AR content to the latest Android phones. Some of the latest Nokia phones are now listed as devices that support ARCore. Nokia 7 plus was officially the first one to be supported, but now you can play with ARCore on Nokia 6 (2018) or Nokia 6.1 as HMD refers to it, Nokia 8 Sirocco, and interestingly Nokia 6.1 plus. Well, Nokia 6.1 plus could easily be the Chinese Nokia X6, but there is always a chance that this particular device might differ in looks and hardware specs from the Chinese version. We could consider this as the first confirmation that Nokia 6.1 will get its plus version. We know already that HMD is reevaluating the future of X6 or the first Nokia with the notch since it is pretty popular outside Chinese market were is being sold exclusively.
Here is the corrected list of supported Nokia devices!
