Google Camera (Gcam) for OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R

Do you want to install a Google Camera mod for your  OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R? These phones feature excellent camera hardware.

The OnePlus 12R has a fairly large and reliable 50MP IMX890 main sensor, which performs very well.

However, many people dislike the OnePlus/ Hasselblad processing algorithm. It adds extra contrast to make photos artistic, and the OnePlus 12 adds a vignette effect and makes shadows dark for a more aesthetic look. It also completely changes the real-life look of a scene with vibrant and punchy colors. This is arguably an artistic look, but it does not represent reality. OnePlus also has issues with skin tones.

Luckily, there are several reliable Google Camera (Gcam) Mods for both of these phones. This article will show you how to install the best ones for the OnePlus 12 and the OnePlus 12R. The Google Camera app is available as a first-party app on Google Pixel phones. It basically brings Google’s Pixel processing to the OnePlus 12 and OnePlus 12R.

Google’s processing uses a new HDR algorithm that enhances the shadows and brightens them up, has excellent highlight control, and takes full advantage of the sensor. Gcams need some tweaking, after which they’ll produce excellent results in various lighting conditions. It also has many features like Night Sight for low-light processing, better skin tones, Motion Photos, Panorama Mode, Lens Blurring, slow-mo, and others.

Some noteworthy developers who make Gcam mods for these phones possible are Arnova8G2, BSG, and Urnyx05.

How to install Google Camera

There are no extra steps. It’s the same as installing any third-party application on your phone. There’s no requirement to root your phone to install Gcam mods.

  1. Pick a stable GCam mod from the above list; we recommend the 7.3.018 APK. However, each mod has its own pros and cons.
  2. Enable installation of apps from unknown sources on your phone. Sideloading is disabled by default for security reasons. Open the Settings app and tap on Security and Privacy. Enable installation from here.
  3. Now, tap on the APK. This will begin the package installer. Confirm the installation by tapping on the “Install” button.
  4. After this, tap on the icon, open the app, and use the Google Camera mod on your OnePlus 12 or OnePlus 12R.

In some cases, the app won’t work. In such a scenario, Camera 2 API might be disabled on your phone by default. You have to enable Camera 2 API using build.prop.
