Google Camera Port is finally available for Redmi 8. If you want to experience the best image quality from your device, then you should download and install Google Camera APK For Redmi 8.
Xiaomi’s stock camera app is very good but when you compare it to the Google camera app, it lacks some great AI features
The Redmi 8 comes with 6.22-inch HD IPS LCD display. It is powered by the Qualcomm SDM439 Snapdragon 439 SoC clocked at 1.95 GHz and comes with 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 512 GB via a micro SD card. It runs on MIUI based on Android 9.0 out of the box. It is juiced by a 5000 mAh. In the camera department, the Redmi 8 packs in a 12 MP sensor that is combined with a f/1.8 lens. On the front, there is a 8 MP sensor.
Though the phones pack in some decent camera hardware, the software processing is not up to the mark to rival. For three years in a row, Google proved that with better software processing algorithms, their phones with a single rear camera can outperform phones with multiple cameras on the rear. If you happen to own a Redmi 8 and want a similar level of image processing, here is how you can achieve that.

Steps To Install Google Camera on Redmi 8
- Download the Google Camera APK file.
- Copy/Move the downloaded file to your phone.
- Open a file manager of your choice and navigate to the copied file.
- Tap on the file to install it as normal APK.
And you are done.
No root or any special steps needed. Once you install the app, you can simply open the app, grant the required permissions and start using it.
These APKs don’t require any additional configuration, but, on top of the usual options (camera sounds, video resolution, etc) there are a few things you can change (explore the settings menu!):
- HDR+ parameters: “Default” is enough for most people. Higher settings may produce better photos, especially in hard conditions, but it takes more time to process.
- HDR+ image quality: Change the jpg compression (a lower value results in smaller files, but the quality is worse).
- HDR+ RAW+JPG: Save RAW files.
- Correction of auto-exposure HDR or Auto-Exposure: Controls shutter speed, not 100% stable. Works better in low light and with HDR enhanced enabled.
- HDR+ enhanced for portrait mode: Slower, but better portrait photos.
- Disable zoom in portrait mode: By default, it zooms in a bit.
- Use Nexus6P model: Photos with better details/sharpness (and noisier).
- Since slow motion doesn’t work on Oreo, you can hide the option from the menu:
Settings > Advanced > Fix Camera API2 > “Disable video slow motion”
