ARCore for axon 7?

Today google announced that many flagships are getting ARCore, one noticeable omission is the Axon 7, is this something that the phone lacks the necessary hardware for? Or is it something that we can look forward to in a future update?
I will point out that google did say that they are working with ZTE to make future devices compatible, this may rule out the axon 7 for support.

    The reason, according to XDA, that it doesn't work with the A7 is because the Camera2 API is a requirement. Maybe this will push ZTE to add the Camera2 API to the A7 finally.

    That would be welcomed with wide open arms by all A7 users that I know..

    I tried Goggle using camera photo to search. I do not find it useful. ARCore may be siMilar.
