Google confirms autofocus not working in ARCore for several LG phones

Thanks to its ARCore SDK, Google made developing augmented reality applications more accessible and streamlined.

As it turns out, not many people are willing to pay $929.99 for an LG V30 with some extra storage and RAM. Realizing this, B&H lowered its price to a much more palatable $729.99 just days after pre-orders went live. Apparently that still wasn't enough for people to start biting, as B&H as dropped the price by another $50 to $679.99, not even a full month after pre-orders went live.
