The hardware must be present. It's not that the phone "specs" matter here. These items must exist in the phone.
You can't add them later.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexus_One shows a 6 year old Nexus One with the accelerometer. So try this the other way. Share models you want to use for say VR and see if folk will check to see if the hardware is there.
I wanted to know what specifications a smartphone needs in order to apply accelerometer and gyroscope...we are talking about androids.
