No GCam camera for Redmi Note 8 Pro. The MediaTek processor does not support this software.

The latest version of the @fu24 gcam is functional.
Found here:

Edit:
The gcam works, the photo makes it, even with the wide angle, but the hdr+ doesn't work. There is no difference between taking a photo with the hdr+ deactivated, hdr+ activated and hdr+ enhanced.
Let's see if any dev can run the hdr+ on this device..... @fu24

On Note 8 Pro "global" version...

Pro :
- it works
- this version is able to recognize wide angle and macro with proper settings
- panorama and photosphere seems to be available

Cons :
- photos are worst than stock application
- front camera is recognize as 5MP
- choosing video leads to crash
- night mode and portrait mode aren't available

I probably will try other versions to help in the future...

Reason for recognizing front cam as 5MP is that its a 20MP snapper with pixel binning so the output with GCam will always be 5MP (20/4) untill the developer tweaks this.

Although MediaTek chipsets are not bad as per my personal experience with them but they always lack a developers community.
Same is the case happening with Redmi Note 8 Pro. We all know that GCam brought wonders to Redmi Note 7 and 7 Pro with the GCam ports but with Redmi Note 8/8 Pro lineup we can only take benefit of GCam port with only regular variant i.e. Redmi Note 8. Everyone wishes to play with new 64MP sensor with GCam on it but not the developers community. Sad for everyone of us who has the Redmi Note 8 Pro or is planning to own one (like me).
