Redmi Note 7 Pro Camera

The Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro feature an impressive dual camera setup at the rear. The ‘pro’ variant, in particular, features Sony’s 48MP IMX586 sensor which is capable of capturing some stunning photos for a budget mid-range phone. But did you know that you can further improve the overall quality of the photos taken by the Redmi Note 7/Pro? All you need to do is install a modded Google Camera APK and use it for clicking photos.

Compared to the stock MIUI camera app, photos taken from the modded Google Camera app have more details, better dynamic range, and colors. The difference in some cases is massive and with the modded Google Camera APK, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is able to give some more premium Android flagships like the OnePlus 6T a run for their money in the imaging department.

Install Modded Google Camera (GCam) on Redmi Note 7/Pro

Step 1: Download this modded GCam APK on your Redmi Note 7/Pro and proceed to install it.

Step 2: Open the Camera app and proceed to grant it the necessary permissions. That’s about it. You can now go ahead and start clicking photos on the Redmi Note 7/Pro with the modded Google Camera APK.

Do note that with the Google Camera app, there’s a slight delay in the processing of photos. Plus, since you are using a modified app, its performance is not going to be as good as the stock MIUI camera app. Nonetheless, if you can live with a slightly unstable camera app, the modded GCam app on the Redmi Note 7/Pro will ensure that you are able to capture some stunning photos.

Do note that GCam on the Redmi Note 7/Pro is still a work in progress. Many times, the modded GCam APK will end up capturing photos are much less saturated and lack contrast. However, when it will work right, photos taken from the modded Google Camera APK will have better dynamic range, colors, and more details. It is only a matter of time before the development community irons out these issues.
