Google also notes that some of these devices will need to have at least Android 8.0 in order for ARCore to work.

To recall, ARCore is the successor to Google’s Project Tango, which was unveiled in 2014. However, only two devices with Project Tango were made available to consumers, namely the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro and the Asus Zenfone AR.  ARCore on the other hand, doesn’t need additional sensors in order to work. As a result, it can be compatible with even more devices. 

Of course, Google isn't the only one dabbling in AR. Apple also has its own AR platform called ARKit. The company recently unveiled the next version of the platform called ARKit 2, which now comes with a slew of new features like shared experiences, persistent AR and more. These allow users to do things like interact with each other within the AR space, tie VR experiences to a specific location, object detection and image tracking.
