Google, in a now-deleted list of supported devices for ARCore, had revealed several unannounced smartphones from seven different Android manufacturers including Samsung, Motorola, LG, Asus, Oppo, and more. Google has updated its support document for the company’s AR software development kit, which is served to Android smartphones through Google Play Services for AR app, previously known as ARCore.
Google had updated its list of compatible devices that the company maintains in order to keep developers informed about the supported device. In the latest development, Google has updated the list to include 23 more Android devices that have support for their AR services. Most of the devices in this list were launched recently. However, almost half of the new additions are devices that have not released or in some cases, have not been announced as well.
The new devices added by Google included Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, LG Stylo, Motorola Moto G(100), Oppo Reno 5A, Oppo Reno 5 Pro+ 5G Bosch, Realme 8 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A52, Samsung Galaxy A72, Samsung Galaxy A82, TCL 20 Pro 5G, and ZTE Z6650S. As the news gained traction, Google retracted and removed all the 23 added Android devices, including the models that have already been released like the Moto G30 and the Moto G10. Reports suggest that Google will update the support page again later this year when the mentioned smartphones will be launched.
This, however, comes as one of the most concrete hints at the existence of the above-mentioned smartphones. While the Samsung Galaxy A52, Galaxy A72, and the Realme 8 Pro are three devices that will be launched soon, other devices like the Oppo Reno 5A, Asus Zenfone 8 Flip, and more remain unknown as of now.
