Commonly available sensors on Android devices?

LeloLelo Member ✭✭✭

I am developing an AR kind of app that currently uses sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer.
My api 24 Lenovo B does not have magnetometer nor a gyrosope.
A friend of mine has a Samsung Galaxy J4 Plus api 26. It did not have a magnetometer, nor SensorType.RotationVector.
I also borrowed a Huawei phone with api 28. It did have all the sensors

Does anyone know if there are some statistics over this somewhere or can share their own experiences?

Another side question I have is if could potentially be doing my AR features via ArCore instead. It supposedly supports android from api 24 and up - or would it nevertheless not work because lack of the necessary sensors of the device?
