Night Sight is becoming one of the most anticipated features for Android smartphones. Ever since the first release of this mode on the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL a few weeks ago, users have been asking left and right for ports of Google’s camera app with Night Sight enabled.
If you do not know what Night Sight is, it basically changes the way we take pictures taken at night. If you take your phone and take a picture outside at night, it will certainly look dark with no details at all. With this mode enabled, however, all pictures will suddenly look like they have been taken during the day. All the pics are full of light, details suddenly appear and the pictures look that much better.
Google has enabled this mode only on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and does not allow other phones to enjoy it. While Google has disabled Night Sight on non-Pixel devices, developers have managed to port the camera app to other phones.
Developers have already ported the Pixel 3 camera to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, but modes such as Night Sight were disabled. Now, you can download the app with Night Sight enabled. You do not need root access or anything else to install the app.
How To Enable Night Sight on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T
There are two variants of the camera app, one designed for the OnePlus 6 and the other one for the OnePlus 6T. Make sure to download the file intended for your phone model, otherwise Night Sight will not work.
- Night Sight for OnePlus 6 | GCam_Pixel3Mod_1_build.6.1.013.apk
- Night Sight for OnePlus 6T | GCam_Pixel3Mod_1_build.6.1.013_test-OP6T.apk
Download the appropriate file for your phone model. Open file explorer, head over to the download section and tap on the camera file. Tap on install. If it gives you an error, then you have to enable Unknown Sources. If Unknown Sources are not enabled the phone will not allow you to install APK files. Once you have installed the app, go to the home screen and tap on the camera icon. Open the settings menu inside the camera app and select Night Sight.
Now you can take high-quality pictures at night with your OnePlus 6 and 6T. Night Sight is basically a type of long exposure shooting, which means there is no loss of quality when taking pictures in this mode.
