Tech giant Google has developed something called ARCore which is a set of software tools that allow the developers to incorporate AR capability into their apps. Likewise, Apple has also built its very own offering like ARKit. While a lot of the latest smartphones are supporting the ARCore from Google, LG is still having issues in this regard and has released a list of smartphones that are not in line with the ARCore functionality.
Some smartphones while in AR mode won’t support Autofocus feature and are not fully functionality include LG V30, LG V35, LG V40, and LG G7. Likewise, all the variants of these phones are also included in the list which expands the list to a lot of phones which are few of the best smartphones by LG, which is a point of concern for the owners.

Interestingly, the mid-ranged smartphones including LG Q6 and LG Q8 are fully compatible. Google ARCore camera is fixed to motion tracking though, considering the bad performance, the tech giant implemented its very own autofocus feature. So to sum it up, if you’re a developer and aim to develop aims around Google’s ARCore platform, you got to keep in mind that LG devices won’t be friendly to your app.
Currently, there is no surety as to when we would see a fix to this in the future.
