Please provide long screenshot.. front camera info is missing..
Please provided proof.. because uploaded image name is not screenshot..

You can use device info app (showing phone name) and camera 2 api app in split screen and take photo with different mobile.

All Android phones that release with 9 have to support and have camera2api enabled by default.
This is the direct link to the long screenshot. I didn't want to embed it as it takes up too much vertical space.

Great. Both Mi A3 and Redmi note 8 has same snapdragon 665. But Note 8 has samsung sensor, while mi a3 has sony sensor.
Which one produces better results with gcam ?

Photo will have good quality but it will not look good on 720p display..

Does anybody know if the is ultra wide angle support in the gcam is working?

Because somtimes rooting is necessery to change camera lenses in gcam (e.g. oneplus one 7 Pro and Xiaomi Mi A3); and somtimes not...

I've tried a few hardware info apps like AIDA64, Device Info HW and Droid Info but none of them show me the names of the camera sensors. Anyone have any ideas on how to get the info?

I don't think so. I have Mi A3 and Redmi Note 7. The gcam is much better with RN7, maybe the sensor camera have much compatibility. The Mi A3 is better with front camera but with rear camera its worse...
Try the night sight. Sorry for my english

    This thread is to discuss best gcam mod for redmi note 8.

    The Google Camera was a must-have for redmi note 7. With it, the phone’s dual camera worked surprisingly well in low light.

    So how are we?

    Will there be a gcam app port to the redmi note 8? And will the effect be es big, as before?

    Thanks a bunch, I'll try different versions of Parrot's Gcam and maybe trcam as well.

    The videos got recorded but appeared in the Gallery app with quite a delay, I saw them there just today.

    If I find a gcam version that works for me, I'll post here.

    here's some versions that work well for me:
    Urnyx05: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1218/ good for wide and macro support (if you're rooted)
    Parrot043: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1239/ good for customisation, getting the best quality from your photos

    I have tested over 100+ gcam versions and found this one to be the best of all. This takes better photos than some flagships.
    Try this you won't be disappointed. Thank me later.

    I have good news for you. There is GCam on which main, wide and macro lenses work. I tested on MIUI 11.0.7.0. It does not require any config files - just install and work, icons for switching objects are visible on the main screen. Screenshots below - first three photos.
    Link here: GCam_RN8P_Wyroczen_7.3.020_2.0.apk.
    Probably requires set SELinux to Permissive mode. Please let someone check if it works on custom roms android 9/10

    I have another great thing for you that I found on the Russian 4pda forum - mod magisk (created by Lenovoved), which clearly improves the quality of the movies recorded on Redmi Note 8 (ginkgo and willow) mainly depending on the changes made in noise removal.
    Telegram with the latest versions : t.me/ld_ginkgo_willow

    Changelog below in Changelog.txt.

    I have another nice thing for you. Unlock additional Mi Camera functions (no root required).
    Using any file manager, go to the DCIM folder in the internal memory, then to the Camera folder and create a file named: Lab_options_visible (fifth picture). Additional settings should appear so as in the photo below - fourth picture.
    The best option is to turn off the MFNR option, i.e. turn off noise removal in photos so that the photos are of even better quality (more details can be seen)
