Hardware requirements for Spatial Target experiences on Android devices

Hi!

 

I have noticed that Spatial Target experiences does not work on all Android devices (v5+).

Is there any list describing which devices are supported?

Or, if not, what should I consider choosing a device for ST experiences?

 

Thanks in advance!

@IstvanPolacsek You can refer to Product Help center documentation for latest details. Also, check out the Vuforia supported device list for Android, iOS and Windows.

@dupatel Thank you very much!

I see that the Android device list contains mostly Phones.

 

Do you have any information about:

  • How often does this list being updated?
  • Is there any plan to include Tablets as well?

 

Re: Hardware requirements for Spatial Target experiences on Android devices

As i understand it Spatial Tracking depends on Ground Plane support in AR Kit (Apple) or AR Core (Android). Ground Plane support requires a minimum set of sensor (6-axis IMU) AND a per device calibration file produced by the phone manufacturer. This is why you see wide support on Apple as they only make a few devices and they are the OEM and the developer evangelizing AR Kit. Android required every OEM to create a calibration file for their devices and as we see with OS updates on Android many OEMs are reluctant to do anything for a device after the initially ship it. This is why Google and Samsung dominate that supported device list.
