Portrait selfies on any device [With Sample Shots][Google Camera Mod Latest APK]

70

IMPORTANT NOTE: The App is still in development phase so expect a better performance & compatibility in coming future. This APP works best if your device has Qualcomm processors launched in 2017 with Android Oreo & ROOT access for best results. If your device is on Nougat then Selfie portraits will not work for you as of now. I expect upcoming builds to fix this issue 🙂 Tweet me your selfies taken with Google Camera MOD APK at https://twitter.com/Dhananjay_Tech

The portrait mode in selfies on Pixel phones works as a charm. But with increasing popularity, the demand for it went really high so our friends at XDA Developers managed to bring Portrait Mode Selfies to most other devices.

First, check whether your device compatibility with Manual Camera Compatibility APP.
If it shows all green, then you are good to go.
But if you end up with some reds or something like this, you need to enable camera2api on your device.

For this, your device needs to be rooted.
Magisk users can simply select Camera2api from modules and flash it.

Now you can check from the compatibility app, it should be showing all green.

Now download the Latest Google Camera Mod apk from here

You can try different versions of the Google Camera Mod from various developers for your device depending on your Android version and skin. Stick to Suggested and Stable/Main versions from this website, follow the colour code.

>>Google Camera All <<APK’s

Given below are versions, you can even try them, but they maybe unstable.

[OLD] Version v1.8

[OLD] 1.5

[OLD] v1.3

Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, and Note 8 (Exynos)- Here (Source)


If you don't find the portrait
mode, go to 
settings > advanced settings 
and enable Portrait Mode.

Our recommended settings are

Config Camera HDR+ : Nexus 6
Model : Pixel 2XL/Nexus 6P
HDR+ parameters : default

We will keep updating this thread with latest apks.
As of now, Portrait selfies are not working well with the v1.4 so we recommend using v1.3 but future builds should be coming out soon.
The edge detection works very good on human faces and partly good on object devices. The HDR+ gives better dynamic range than the stock camera app.
Here are some camera samples shot on the Mi A1 with stock camera app, and Modded GCam. It’s as good as on the Pixel 2XL.

If you tried everything and still you were not able to get the Google Camera MOD app working, here why Google Camera MOD is not working on your device.

This Google Camera Mod app is supported on all devices running Android Oreo and some devices with Nougat. Try to be on Oreo Roms to avoid compatibility issues.
If your device has any Qualcomm Processor that was launched in and after 2017, then it will work fine.
Tested on Redmi 5 Plus, Mi A1 and Redmi Note 4.
If you find some other ways to use this on your particular device, do let us know on Twitter @Dhananjay_tech

And if you have any problems, then tweet out. We will surely help.
And do send us your camera samples! We would love to see them.

  1. When i check in camera compatibility app its shows it is compatible but when i download from your given link it shows this app is not compatible for your device . Mobile phone-moto g5s plus.

  2. It shows green but when I try to install apk it tell
    Parse error
    There is problem parsing the package
    By the way my phone is lg V10 at&t ver unrooted lolipop

      • I am using Redmi Note 3. ROM- nitrogen oreo(Rooted)
        Compatibility check Fine(all green):P– (nd I installed all the version one by one, V1.5 nd 1.4 is not working neither front nor rear)
        In V1.3 only front camera is working but the images that I was taking with portrate mode all were getting colored green, but in normal mode it’s working super fine.

        All I can say is that in RN3 it’s not working(not any of the given version) so will it be fixed in future(as u said…Issues due to SD650 SoC) or I should have to try other camera application?

        • Try changing the settings to Nexus 6 auto and Nexus 6P. Enable portrait mode from advanced settings. Use the v1.3 or my recommendation is to use the v1.5 to get portrait selfies on Redmi Note 3. It should work fine. If still it doesn’t work, shift to some other Android 8.1 ROM like Cardinal OS or some other

  3. I did all thing also flash with magisk module and finally compatible and than I come again thread and see this camera not compatible with redmi note 3 SD 650 . Any other apk work in redmi note 3 marshmallow version.

  4. Manual Camera Compatibility Test fails even after flashing the camera2api zip file*

  8. Hi Dhananjay Bhai, i would like to add one more thing that GCMod one is working Fine on Redmi 5A just after enabling the camera2api, so its working on SD400 series as well and also Front portrait is working super fine same as Mi A1, but the stock camera does not work after enabling C2API, i have posted a video on my channel..you can check that out (if you want).
    also its working on Exynos one, like i have tested on Galaxy S7, and S7 Edge, with the Miniuser123’s Port (Front Portrait Not working on Samsung)

  17. Hi everybody, the camera works great but I want to set the manual HDR option. In the 1.8 versione i can’t find it. Does everyone know how can I do it?

  18. It crashes every time I try to open it. I think it’s because of an security update for my device. Is the mod going to be updated to fix this issue?
    I installed the older 5.1 version of it. It works, but unfortunately doesn’t have the portrait mode :/
