In the coming future, we can expect more advancement in smartphones as two big smartphone manufacturers have entered into a strategic partnership. Samsung and Google join hands for ARCore framework to its lineup of smartphones long-term.
Samsung and Google Join Hands for ARCore Augmented Reality
ARCore was previously Project Tango. For those who don’t know, Tango was featured in the recent ASUS ZenFone AR. Project Tango devices relied on special sensors to make augmented reality apps work, but ARCore’s mission is to bring AR to all phones. The platform focuses on three things: motion tracking, environmental understanding, and light estimation, and drops the requirement of specialized hardware.
All the latest Samsung’s flagship devices like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, and Galaxy Note 8 have all supported ARCore. However, this agreement signifies that Samsung will adopt it for future devices.
Samsung said in a post.
Through a partnership with Google, developers will be able to use the ARCore SDK to bring AR to millions of Samsung consumers on the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note8. This strategic partnership with Google offers new business opportunities for developers, and a new platform for creating immersive new experiences for consumers.
