Download GCam for POCO X2 [Complete Guide]

Last Updated on February 26, 2022 by Vinay Kharayat

Hello everyone! You must be looking for a perfect google camera version for your POCO X2. So after testing out various GCam mods I brought you some handpicked mods. After testing it for a few days I decided to share the POCO X2 Google Camera download link. Read the article to download GCam for POCO X2 and use the POCO X2 GCam config file.

I have provided multiple mods of Google Camera depending on your needs. If you just need a google camera for general photography and don’t have time for configuring mods go with Beginner Level/Intermediate level and Advanced level.

All the GCam mods provided below do not require root. Just follow the installation process and you are good to go.

What is GCam or Google Camera Mod?

GCam/Google Camera Mod is a modified Google Camera app, also known as Pixel Camera. Google Camera is the stock camera app shipped on Nexus and Pixel phones from Google. Google's HDR+ technology enhances the picture quality, especially on low and mid-end phones.

Features include HDR+, portrait mode, motion photos, panorama, lens blur, 60fps video, slow motion, and more.

Because Google Camera wasn't designed to work on all phones, it's all a bit messy (read: why so many devs/ports), but a few developers try to make it compatible with a massive number of phones.

Don't blame Google if something doesn't work, after all this is not the official app. Keep in mind that GCam isn't open-source, so it's hard or even impossible to add new features.

Features of GCam/Google Camera Mod


When it comes to the Google camera features, HDR+ has a significant role in photography, by using this feature, the shutter is meant to be pressed for 5- 15 frames to get the most fantastic shot through it.

HDR+ Enhanced

This unique feature in Google camera gives out the results like the Smart HDR from Apple by using the overexposed and underexposed frames, so isn’t it fascinating that you can even use the apple features in your android as well.

Motion picture

One of the OG features of the Google camera is that it can even provide the features of motion pictures, just like Apple’s live photos. This is one of the overwhelming features of the google camera, in my view.

Video Stabilization

If you are a videographer, you guys must know how important it is to make a stabilized video, and just for that, most people must be using Gimble for that. But now you can save some huge bucks of your money because Gcam got your back by introducing another OG feature in it by providing stabilization.

Super Res zoom

This feature shifts the image’s resolution to the next level, and this feature gives out drizzling image processing.

Compatibility and requirements for GCam/Google Camera Mod

  • Only works on Android phones with the camera2 API enabled
  • Mod compatible with modern Snapdragon SoCs. Some versions work on some Exynos, Kirin, and Mediatek phones, but usually with limitations.
  • ARM64, only very old versions (GCam 4) support 32 bit
  • Recent APKs may not work on older Android versions
  • Requires GApps or a replacement like microG (more info)
  • Android only

Note: You cannot install GCam by San1ty, UltraCVM, or ButcherCam together. If you have one installed already, uninstall that! But you can have Urnyx with San1ty, UltraCVM or ButcherCam.
