Google Camera (Pixel) App for OnePlus 6 with working HDR+, Lens Blur, PhotoSphere, and more

Google Camera app is built only for Google’s own devices, that is Pixel and Nexus phones. This app comes inbuilt with the stock Android OS. You may find Google Camera in Play Store or some other mirror site, but those are not device specific. This means you may not get the full features like working HDR+ mode, Panorama, PhotoSphere and Google lens.

OnePlus 6 Google Camera

HDR+ mode is something unique in Pixel devices, and you may not find it on other smartphones. Thankfully, we have a great developer community, XDA Senior Member cstark27 ported the Google Pixel Camera app for OnePlus 6. You can download Google Camera app for OnePlus 6 with working HDR+ (both rear and front), lens blur, Panorama, PhotoSphere and Google lens.

If your OnePlus 6 is on the latest OxygenOS Pie ROM, you can download version 8.2. In this case, version 8.2 will use the Nexus 6 configuration to have better auto-focus. Otherwise, Google Camera V5.3.015 is out there for Oreo-based OxygenOS. We have download links for both the versions, read ahead and grab them now!

What’s working on Google Camera for OnePlus 6

  2. Front HDR+ Capture
  3. Lens Blur
  4. Panorama

  6. Google Lens (Only on “Pixel3Mod” or 5.3.015 versions)

However, there may be some issues like while using portrait mode; the device may get locked. Also, autofocus might not work correctly.
