How to Install the Google Camera Port on the Redmi Note 7

Xiaomi has done it again with the launch of the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. The phone is priced around $200 and has the build quality and feature set (such as the 48MP camera) that would rival $400 devices in some countries. Now, I want to show you how to sideload the Google Camera (GCam) port to get better photos out of it.

The regular Redmi Note 7 comes equipped with Samsung’s 48MP ISOCELL Bright GMI image sensor. This is quite a special image sensor since during well-lit environments it can use techniques to output 48MP photos with 0.8μm pixels. However, if it detects a low-light environment then it uses 4-in-1 pixel binning to simulate 1.6μm pixels.

 

This results in better low-light photography that produces 12MP photos in those conditions while enabling some great scenic images in bright, well-lit conditions. However, Xiaomi doesn’t have the best post-processing algorithms when it comes to its stock camera application.
