Google Pixel camera trick comes to other phones through a mod

The camera found on the Google Pixel impressed us when we reviewed the phone previous year.

The "Google Camera" application has been updated to feature a selfie flash which is usually missing from the front cameras of most smartphones, the media reported on Saturday. The device is popularized because of its awesome HDR+ camera, a new feature that deals with images differently from other smartphone camera implementations.

Regular HDR cameras work exactly as it does on most cameras. Much gratitude to the app developer that goes by B-S-G, as it is no longer exclusive to the Pixels.


Google Camera is a neat photography app that can help produce some great pictures, but support for it is disappointingly restricted to Google's Pixel and Nexus devices right now.

The app was tested by XDA member Adam Conway, who thas mentioned a variety of devices he tested on. That means Android users with phones like the Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5 and LG G6 (all of which XDA, which picked up the story, has confirmed to be working) can now make use of the Google Camera's impressive HDR+ mode. The developers apparently found references to Muskie Pixel XL2, a rumored version of the Pixel that has been heard about earlier. This isn't going to give the ideal Pixel camera, but it looks more or less like it.
