Pixel 2 Portrait Mode unofficially on OG Pixel, Nexus 6P, 5X

Look at any smartphone review, especially on YouTube, and you'll realize that almost 70% of the entire review covers the camera.

The new version was tested on my Nexus 5X, should work on Nexus 6P and Pixel 2016 phones too.

Google's Pixel 2 series of smartphones may have had a rough journey so far, with hardware/software issues being uncovered every other week, but this can't take away the fact that the devices feature a pretty impressive camera.

Camera NX V7.3, released a couple of days ago, brings Portrait mode to the original Pixels, as well as the Nexus 6P and 5X, which means that all initially exclusive Pixel 2 features have now been ported to older devices! We don't expect the photos captured with portrait mode on the Camera NX app to be on par with the Pixel 2 photos, but they should be much better than the image captures with lens blur feature.


The developer of the app has kept things as simple as possible.

Developers of Camera NX application have now made it easier for these left-out handsets to experience the best of all camera worlds. That's thanks in large part to the phone's exceptional combination of camera hardware with Google's prowess in image processing software as seen by their famous HDR+ technology. However, you need to be careful while side-loading the app as it has not been cleared by the Google Play Store yet. Of course, in order for it to work, the camera has to first recognize a face in the shot. After launching it, access the menu in the app and you'll be able to spot Portrait Mode feature.

It seems like many 64-bit devices running Android Oreo are compatible with Arnova8G2's port of the Pixel 2 Portrait Mode feature. Hopefully, this shortcoming will be addressed in a future update.
