The OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro, and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G were introduced back in May, and all three devices have now been added to the list of ARCore-compatible smartphones. If you navigate to this link, you will be able to check out the whole list of ARCore-supported devices.
By reaching this status, the OnePlus 7 series of smartphones has joined its predecessors, the OnePlus 3, 5, 5T, 6, and 6T, all of which are compatible with Google ARCore platform, as long as they run Android 8.0 Oreo or Android 9 Pie, that is.
For those of you who do not know, ARCore is Google’s very own AR (Augmented Reality) platform which was announced way back in 2017. ARCore has been gaining quite a bit of traction since it became a thing, unlike the Project Tango which came before it. Google ARCore is not exactly limited by hardware, which is almost certainly the main reason why it has managed to grow so much in comparison to Project Tango.
The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro were recently added to the list of supported devices, and the same can be said for LG’s flagships, the LG G8 ThinQ, and V50 ThinQ 5G, not to mention Google’s new mid-rangers, the Pixel 3a, and Pixel 3a XL.
Google had recently introduced some new ARCore abilities, including Augmented Faces API and Scene Viewer, both of which require quite a bit of computing power, but that should not be an issue for the OnePlus 7 series as well, considering how powerful hardware is on those devices.
If you’d like to see what the OnePlus 7 series is capable of when it comes to AR, feel free to download Google’s ARCore application, which is linked down below, and try it out for yourself. Many people think that Augmented Reality is the future, along with Virtual Reality, but we’ll see where will technology take us, as neither of those are as developed as they should be at this point in time.
All three OnePlus 7 smartphones that we’ve mentioned are actually fueled by the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor, and all three of them come with UFS 3.0 storage, which makes them the only available devices with such flash storage, in addition to the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
All three phones are equipped with plenty of RAM, and quite frankly, they should be able to run practically anything you throw at them, without a problem. All three phones also ship with Android 9 Pie, and OnePlus’ OxygenOS 9.5 skin.
The OnePlus 7 Pro and 7 Pro 5G variants do not sport a display notch, while they include a 6.67-inch QHD+ Fluid AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, which is also curved. The OnePlus 7, on the other hand, comes with the same fullHD+ Optic AMOLED panel that was included in the OnePlus 6T. There are several other differences between these devices, like in the camera department, for example, but for the most part, they’re quite similar in terms of sheer power.
