Google recently launched a couple of smartphones earlier this month called the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G. The Pixel 5 isn’t a flagship phone if you look at the hardware configuration. Both, the Pixel 5 and 4a 5G support the 5G network and run a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. So the Pixel 5 can be termed as a mid-range phone and not a flagship. However, by no means is the software mid-range. Google’s latest Android 11 firmware and the new Google Camera 8.0 surely makes the Pixel 5 stand out from the competition. It’s a camera phone after all. So download and install the latest Google Camera 8.0 for older Pixel devices along with the Gcam 8.0 mod APK for all Android phones.
The latest Google Camera 8.0.0 APK featured in the Pixel 5G comes with some stunning new features and options. Google, in a recent blog post, released a list of new features in the Pixel 5 camera app. Some of the most intriguing features include Ultrawide lens support or Google Cameras, Cinematic Pan for videos, Night Sight in Portrait Mode, Portrait Light, New editor in Google Photos, and much more.
Moreover, you can also expect most of the features mentioned in the previous stable Google Camera 7.5 APK like the Motion blur effect that offers DSLR-like quality for photos of moving objects, “Audio zoom” lets you capture audio/sound from the microphone in a specific direction, Flash intensity lets you adjust the intensity of flash at will, Video sharing feature now expands to videos as well.
Here is the original Google Camera 8.0 APK as well as the latest Gcam 8.0 by the developer cstark. While Google Camera should work on older Pixel devices running Android 11, it may give some error. However, it has been tested working on Android 10 on select OnePlus phones for some reason. A solution to this would be to download Gcam 8.0 APK mod by a renowned Gcam developer named cstark.
