The Pixel camera or well known as Google Camera (Gcam) APK file is now available to download for UMIDIGI S3 Pro. This is just a port of Google Camera APK and not the actual stock Google Camera that is exclusively available on Google Pixel phones.
Google Camera is known for it’s HDR+, Portrait mode, Night sight mode, Google lens integration etc. which are exclusive to the Google’s Pixel camera app. No other camera app has a match to these features. Google Camera APK is only available for Google Pixel devices but developers have ported the same to other devices as well and that is why we have the GCam APK available for UMIDIGI S3 Pro phone.
So lets check out the working features of this build, how to download and install the GCam apk on UMIDIGI S3 Pro in the below sections!
About this Google Camera 6.1.021 Download for UMIDIGI S3 Pro:
This GCam APK for UMIDIGI S3 Pro is a port of Google Camera latest version 6.1.021 where Time Lapse feature was introduced.
Following are the features working on this Google Camera APK:
- Basic Google Camera features (HDR+/RAW/ZSL/Flash and etc.)
- Portrait Mode (Front/Rear)
- Night Sight (Front/Rear)
- Slow Motion
- Video Recording (1080p 60fps, 4K 30fps)
Except Slow motion rest of all other features of Google Camera is intact on this ported app. Personally I feel like the slo-mo feature of the MIUI camera is better as it provides 960fps super slow-mo video recording.

Hi, thank you for this awesome post!
I have a problem, I rooted my UMIDIGI S3 PRO, added the line to the build.prop and check if the CameraAPI2 is enable with OpenCamera, but the version of GCAM 6.1.021 didnt work, if i install an old version of GCAM like 5.1.018 works.
Thank you very much, i hope if you can help me
