After Google surprised everyone with the camera Pixel 2, which is only one, and blurs not worse than the iPhone with dual, craftsmen abandoned all efforts to develop versions of the app for other smartphones. The case is still very slow, some functions are available for the OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG V30, but not the main — portrait mode.
This week, the situation finally shifted — user forum xda-developers with the nickname miniuser123 fixed some problems with the Exynos processors, which allowed them to start the mode with a blur effect. The app works on the Galaxy S7, S8 and Note 8, and is relevant only for the main camera of the device. In addition, the smoothness and speed is still at a very low level. But the photo with the blur get no worse than that of Pixel 2!
An example of a photo taken on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus:
For the application to work correctly, all users of smartphones Exynos in the camera settings (Developers Settings) you need to set the following parameters:
- Model: Nexus 6
- Portrait mode on all models: on
- camera.af.debug.show: off
- camera.gcam_enabled: on
- camera.faceboxes: on
With such settings portrait mode and HDR+ should work much better and take less.
The owners of Galaxy S7, S8 and the Note 8 can try out the new camera by installing apk.
