I have been following this website which upload all of Gcam versions. Recently a developer from the Russian forum 4pda (scrubber) uploaded APK which fixes all the problems of portrait mode and HDR+ for the selfie and back camera.
The Gcam doesn't require any configuration it's already set to the Nexus 6p model which gives the best details and the outcome of the pictures is amazing looks like it was taking with Pixel 2.

Thanks to @leomedeia
cstark27 version got the best white balance instead of the blue tint that was on scrubber's version.
Direct Link: Better Low Light v3.6(20/3/2018)

Installed it and works fine, but what about Lens Blur?

I've been following these ports for a long time too and I'm currently using "scrubber_GCAM_5.1.018_25". It has portrait mode on both the front and back cameras and works like a charm. Plus you don't have to configure anything since it's already done. So I suggest you try using that version.

I'm using the one you are suggesting and yes it has portrait mode but what about lens blur;

There can either be Portrait mode or Lens blur. If you really want Lens Blur, then the stable version that I used before, for Lens Blur was "GCam5.1.014-Arnova8G2-v9.1".
It produced some great results with Lens Blur and ofcourse with HDR+. Tho it depends on what config you use in the settings.

Why rear camera shows maximum resolution as 12 megapixel instead of 16 megapixels.
Please add the advance setting in ths app,so that we can swap between portrait n blur mode.

Scrubber's versions were made to work on his Xiaomi Mi Max 2. It's a "install and forget" app, that's why you don't see an option to enable/disable Portrait Mode and probably the reason why you can't go past 12 MP on the back camera (that's the max resolution on his phone).

Try Arnova's 5.1.018_v1.5 instead. You will need to configure the app so HDR+ works without any issues. I have the OnePlus 3 and for that reason can't tell you which settings are the best for this phone, but try the ones compatible with the Nokia 8:

Model: Nexus 6P (or Pixel 2XL for less noisy, and less detailed, photos)
Config camera HDR+: Pixel 2017 Zsl Hdr+ (ZSL available with Auto HDR, not with forced HDR/HDR enhanced)
HDR+ parameters: High

Or try some very stable, but limiting, settings:

Model: Nexus 6P (or Pixel 2XL)
Config camera HDR+: Nexus 6 Auto
HDR+ parameters: Default

Some of the settings inside the "advanced" menu may not be compatible with this device. If the app starts crashing, you might be using incompatible settings or have enabled some incompatible feature.

This port is always evolving, so with time Arnova's 5.1.018_v1.5 will became "old". Keep trying his apks and the ones from B-S-G. Or just use these "install and forget" apks... they work too.

By the way, I have this telegram channel for update alerts. When I upload new apks to the page linked by @sayedam, I also post them on the telegram channel.

Till now(as of January 16,2018) the best camera for Front and back portrait working flawless is the

This camera is the best install and forget app yet for Nokia 6
Front and back cameras both have portrait mode working.

Sorry i was editing the post and you answered really quick... Brother its pixel mod v1 ...its previous version also had same issue.. I have tested all the previous versions gcmod5 as well.
For gc5mod the pictures from front camera contain no details i.e. look like 0.2 MP pics. But also they have no tint.... Right now i am again checking the mod u link to confirm it...
Give me just 120 seconds to confirm it

Dear @Arnova8G2 brother

The GCam you linked behaves like this here on Nokia 6
Back camera normal mode.... Black screen
Back camera portrait mode... Works perfect
Front camera normal mide... No tint.. but pic quality is like 0.2 MP camera
Front camera portrait mode... No timt... Same low pic quality


To be honest pixel mod is best only tint is the issue there. That's all :)

For photos? I am not sure. My LG V30 supports 16mp with the mod I made so that's weird.
