How To Install Google Camera 6.1 APK With Night Sight on Samsung Phones [Snapdragon & Exynos]

Google Camera 6.1 with Night Sight has now been ported to Samsung phones. Developers have ported the latest version of the camera app, GCam to Samsung devices such as Galaxy Note 9, Note 8, Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, S8 and S8 Plus. The Google Camera app comes directly from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL system software. It has all the settings and features that Pixel devices have, including Night Sight, Portrait Mode, Photo Sphere, Slow Motion, HDR+, Lens, RAW and more.

The Google Camera app is one of the most popular camera applications on the Android platform. It is one of the most important apps of Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which have been praised for their outstanding camera quality in picture taking and video recording. Night Sight is a revolutionary feature that is much better than HDR+ and Nightscape.

GCam version 6.1 can be installed on many Samsung phones running on 8.0 Oreo and 9.0 Pie. Furthermore, it has been tested and works on Exynos and Snapdragon chipsets. If you want to test out the new camera app on your Galaxy phone, then you can check out the APK files down below.
