I'm currently testing a Google Camera port on the ASUS ROG Phone 3. I am using GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.0_Wichaya_snapcam_V2.2 by Wichaya. Here are my observations so far with respect to compatibility:

id 0 = main camera 16 mp
id 1 = front camera 24 mp
id 2 = ultra wide camera 13 mp
id 3 = macro camera 5 mp
id 4 = main camera 64 mp raw

  • All 4 lenses work, including the two rear auxiliary cameras (wide-angle and macro.) You have to go to Settings > Advanced > Auxiliary camera and enable them there.
  • 64MP unbinned images can be captured, it's ID4. Aggressive denoising seems to remove a lot of detail. Play with the Luma denoise and Chroma denoise values in Settings > Advanced > Lib patcher.
  • HDR+ enhanced works with 64MP capture.
  • Max video recording is 4K60. 8K30 not available.
  • Slow motion crashes, so no 4K120 available.

Current issues:
  • No distortion correction for the wide-angle camera
  • Selfies are always 24MP, no pixel binning

I will get camera samples at a later date.

Thanks to Wichaya for their assistance!

GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.1_Wichaya v2.3
Based on Urnyx05's 7.3.018 v2.1. (Thanks Urnyx05)
- Optimize apk by uncompressed apk and clean up code (Thanks Arnova8G2)
- Added set auto exposure target frame rate range for viewfinder (works on some phone)

Download :

One thing that amaze me is a lot of high resolution stuff such as 64 mp, 8k video resolution and 4k slow motion are in id 4 instead of the usual id 0
The camera2 api is similar to Zenfone 6 and Rog Phone 2 but with separate ids for high resolution
Thanks Mishaal for testing

I would buy Asus ROG Phone 3, but the camera does not satisfy me 100%... so I'm much interested to GCAM "mod" Asus ROG Phone 3 results!

- 📸 Aux cameras working on most phones without root apart from some exceptions. (Bug on Rog Phone 3 crash when switch lens from 64 mp mode to front camera. Change lens to main first before use front camera) Thanks a lot to Eszdman and Arnova8G2 for the code shared to me and others.
- Added OPPO and Experimental opmode (Thanks Arnova for the value)
- Adjusted some menus in the settings
- Press lib patcher icon bring to lib patcher menu, hold awb icon bring to awb menu, hold exposure button bring to exposure compensation menu (Thanks Overwhelmer)

- Fixed black screen aux video mode on some devices
- Added new option to choose viewfinder buttons layout between old left side or top near the drop down menu
- Added no restart when no setting changes (Thanks Arnova for suggestion)

I think the 60fps video recording is not 60. The video recording with stock camera is much much smoother. Can anybody confirm amd is there a solution?
