ARCore is Google’s platform for building augmented reality experiences. Through API’s, Google’s ARCore provides more sensibility features in smartphones that give new heights to sense the environment, understand the world and interact with information in this modern age. These APIs are available across Android and iOS devices to enable shared Augmented Reality experiences.
Basically, ARCore tracks the positions of the mobile devices as it moves, and builds an understanding of the real world over time that helps it to improve and adapt further.
ARCore’s motion tracking technology helps identify and determine positions and orientations through the smartphone’s camera and inertial sensors. ARCore uses a process called simultaneous localization and mapping, or SLAM, to understand the world around it relative to smartphones. ARCore detects visually distinct features in the captured camera image called feature points and uses these points to compute or measure its change in location.

Many Smartphones have already started supporting ARCore by passing the Google’s certification process. Augmented Reality is the latest technology equipped with a smartphone. Not all Android and iOS devices support ARCore features, the device must be running Android 7.0 or newer with some more model-specific requirements to support ARCore features.
ASUS ROG Phone, Google Pixel, Huawei, and HMD Global(Nokia) are some of the smartphone manufacturers who are integrating the latest ARCore features into their smartphones.
