In a couple of years, smartphone cameras have earned a respectable and even competitive place as compared to the DSLR or GoPro cameras. Although the comparison isn’t fair enough, and even we also think so. But at the end of 2019, a couple of flagship device cameras are available that capture stunning images even in low light. Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL cameras are some live examples. If you’re using the Xiaomi Redmi 8 and can’t get expected image results, download Google Camera for Xiaomi Redmi 8 [GCam 7.2 APK].
A huge thanks to ahmedsheme, an XDA Developers member, for sharing the link and features of the Google Camera for Redmi 8. Most importantly, this GCam app doesn’t require root access. Xiaomi has launched the Redmi 8 handset a month ago, in October 2019, with quite impressive specifications at a very competitive price tag. The handset has a dual rear camera setup and a single front camera.
Though the rear cameras do perform a pretty good task in its price segment, the new Google Camera 7.2 APK mod file is now available for the Redmi 8 model. Now, if you don’t know about Google Camera, it’s a ported app from official Pixel devices and works really fine on compatible non-Pixel devices.
