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.

 

  1. This particular port is thanks to the work from B-S-G and comes with the newer features such as Night Sight

  2. Either open the APK from the web browser, or tap it in your favorite file explorer app to prompt the install process
