ARCore 1.3 adds support for the OnePlus 5T, Xiaomi Mi 8, Honor 10, and more

Google ARCore is a platform for augmented reality applications on Android. Version 1.3 of the Android application started to roll out on the Play Store today, and within the APK are new device profiles hinting at support for a plethora of new devices including the OnePlus 5T, Xiaomi Mi 8, Honor 10, Nokia 6, Nokia 7 Plus, and much more.

List of devices that will soon support ARCore

I can’t say for certain when these devices will receive support for the augmented reality platform. Google hasn’t yet updated the official listing to confirm the rollout. The only way to find out for yourself is to download ARCore from the Google Play Store below—if it installs and you’re able to launch a supported app, then you’re golden. I have linked a simple AR app for you to try out if you’re interested. Let us know below if your device is supported!
