Using ARCore technology, third-party developers should be able to get relevant tools for creating different apps and games for expanded reality, for example, from interacting with 3D virtual objects or creating virtual worlds based on real environments.
All this with the use of classic cameras and positioning software. It will not require special hardware elements but only a classic smartphone.
ARCore should also be supported by Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus phones soon
Last year’s preview of ARCore was released by Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +, Galaxy Note 8, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Last month, the official version of ARCore 1.0 finally appeared, adding support for OnePlus 5, Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge, ASUS ZenFone AR and LG V30 / V30 +.
On Reddit, developers have now released that the release of the new ARCore version over the next few weeks will also boost support for Samsung’s top-of-the-line models.
If you own one of them, you will also be able to try out AR applications that support this technology.
