Actually, there is no gcam mod present that can click more than 5 MPx photos on the front camera...

But in my note 7pro I can click 13mp photos........... The main problem is note5 pro after enabling camera2api front camera is automatically degraded to 5mp...... I have check this in Dev check before enabling camera2api it shows 20mp for front camera and after enabling it shows 5mp.... Now only xiaomi can fix that issue

Yes you can go over 5MP on front cam, but that's in custom aosp rom with pre-enabled camera2api, not sure about miui.

You can activate cam2api by adb without root but unlocked bootloader is a must!!!
Search google for proper tutorials for your version of android (android or pie) because there are different approaches to achieve this!
There is no need to flash twrp permanently!
For example, you can have a look here:

Good luck!

Enabling camera2api without root, at least didn't work for my Redmi Note 5 AI running 10.3.2.0.
I did try all those tutorials talking about temporary booting on Redwolf recovery, may be flashing the same would work but that isn't we want here.

My Whyred did not encounter any issues doing this procedure to activate cam2api! I guess one should have all the correct drivers and an unlocked bootloader would not face any bumps at all... I did it on Oreo, on Pie even now on miui 11. I have cam2api enabled following that type of tutorials.

    I actually can with MIUI stock rom - just flashed HAL3_ENABLE_MIUI_PIE.ZIP via TWRP (OrangeFox). Gcam 6.3 works really fine incl 13MP front cam.

    This 5 Mpx gcam bug exists in indian variant only

    Sent from my whyred using XDA Labs
