*UPDATE*
*Arnova's latest build 8.1 just released*
Not sure how well my XMLs work with it since I have since upgraded to an S21 Ultra. But worth a try.


Thanks to KosBeg, we now know that these specific package names are whitelisted by Samsung to be able to use the telephoto camera:
com.sec.android.app.camera
com.sec.factory.camera
com.sec.android.app.camera.shootingmode.social
com.sec.factory.cameralyzer
com.samsung.android.bio.face.service
com.samsung.android.biometrics.service
com.samsung.android.server.iris
com.samsung.android.aremoji
com.samsung.android.ruler
com.samsung.android.scan3d


Confirmed all 3 rear cameras working with the S10/Note 10 series and S20/Note 20 series, front camera won't with OneUI 2.5+ unless you have S10 Lite or S20 FE.

Wichaya has also modified his GCAM for Samsung telephoto. Download the updated XML Wichaya file attached and the Samsung APK version from here: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/changelog1501/

Zoran's ZGCAM works best for Exynos phones. His latest will allow telephoto on Exynos Galaxy phones. Links to the latest gcam is here: https://koopahtmaniac.com/getLatest.php . You can load the ZGCAM XML file I attached to use the 4x zoom.

Stock camera has improved greatly, but when it comes to zooming into the picture, stock cam's processing still does terribly with fine detail and edge smoothing. In my attached picture, the top is stock cam and bottom is gcam at 100% crop.

works perfect with the XML file on my SM-G9880Oneui2.5, btw is there any possibility to enable the front camera?

Sadly no, Samsung removed the RAW ability so it's on them to re-add it (vs telephoto where they hid it rather than removed it).

How do you install the apk when it has the same name as the stock camera app?
It actually doesn't use the same name as the stock camera. It uses the same name as this app here, so you'll have to uninstall it first: https://apps.samsung.com/appquery/appDetail.as?appId=com.samsung.android.scan3d&cId=000005201279

Do you have a Snapdragon S20 Ultra? If so, your telephoto Camera ID should be 52 (also the same ID for the S10/Note 10 series). I have the XML in my zip file since I can't attach XML files directly. If you extract and apply it, it should work.
I have Exynos version, that's why I asked how can one figure out the correct camera IDs?

Works with galaxy note 10+ (snapdragon) with all 3 lenses for photos only
Video recording not working
Flash not working
But it's not problem for me, the most important thing that I have finally found Gcam port works with telephoto lens.
Note : you have to uninstall 3d scanner before installing the port.

Used GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.1_Wichaya_V3.1.1.apk and Wichaya_3.1.xml on Galaxy S20+ Snapdragon.
Pressing "Zoom" crashes the app and I had to reset app data.

By the way, is there a GCam that can record 4K video?

Yeah, sadly video doesn't work with telephoto and Wichaya's right now. Good point about the 3D Scanner though, I guess some people might actually have that installed haha.

Used GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.1_Wichaya_V3.1.1.apk and Wichaya_3.1.xml on Galaxy S20+ Snapdragon.

You need to download the 3rd one from Celso's website, the name is GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.1_Wichaya_V3.1.1_samsung.apk. This GCAM can do 4k video on the main camera, not the telephoto one.

Thanks, installed that one and checked the info in the settings to see com.samsung.android.scan3d then enabled 4K video in the GCam settings but still no luck. Tried both HEVC and H.264. Will try other GCam 7.4 builds.

Does pressing switching to the zoom camera work for you now? And for video, you are choosing the main camera and hitting video and it doesn't work? Like does it crash?

Thanks, unfortunately doesn't install on my S20+ Exynos weirdly. Just get the app not installed thing. I don't have root yet.
Anybody that has root could maybe share the IDs from Exynos?

Do you have other GCAMs installed? Also do you have the Samsung 3D Scanner app installed? As you'll need to remove that too.

    Hey guys, what's the ideal version of GCam (and XML) for a S20 FE LTE with Snapdragon 865?
    Thanks a lot!

    Arnova's latest 8.1 just released. Give it a try guys!

    Already tried that but does the same. The zoom camera focuses once (the focus circle target appears at the center of the frame) and that's it, it's touch to focus afterwards.

    Doesn't happen on my phone so I'm not sure, probably have to wait until Gcam 8 then.

    I have S20+ Snapdragon. I installed the GCam 7.3 Burial.. And used the XML file attached Burial.XML.

    Front camera is not working, it crashed on switching to front camera.

    Sorry I don't use the front camera so I didn't notice it. You can fix it by going to Settings > advanced > use non restart aux method.
