Install the Google Camera on Xiaomi Mi 9 SE without root

Despite the enormous and showy efforts made by Xiaomi regarding the photographic sector of its devices, there is always someone who is not satisfied and who seeks perfection, forgetting that it is still a smartphone and not professional cameras. Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has very good hardware and at a photographic level, it doesn’t hurt badly, although without Xiaomi Mi 9 SE it can’t be defined as a real camera-phone yet, because at software level maybe something is missing and therefore to the rescue there comes the wonderful world of modding.

In many articles and guides we talked about the  Google Camera and the benefits it brings, at least at the photo level, allowing access to pro modes like HDR + or portrait mode, which have literally bewitched millions of users and are a trademark of manufactures Big G devices, but also the recent Night Sight. As you know the modding has allowed to carry out the port of this application that in some cases has given new life to the smartphone on which it is installed, but the price to pay is to carry out operations that for some users are pure fantasy.

it should, therefore, be proper applause to the  Ukrainian developer BSG  who managed to port the Google Camera also for Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, which does not require any unlocking of the bootloader, root or strange permissions, since the smartphone already has the API camera2. All you have to do is install the application as a normal APK and start enjoying the features offered by the Google Camera. Of course, some bugs are not exempt, the classics we are used to, namely the failure of the Smart Burst function and the Slow Motion but the most important functions are fully functional, such as the portrait mode, HDR + and video recording, as well as the Night Sight Mode.
