The Pixel camera or well known as Google Camera APK for Galaxy S9+ is now available to download which is based on Arnova8G2’s build. This post includes different Google camera apps for bot Galaxy S9+ Snapdragon and Exynos variant.

This is a port of Google Camera app and not the stock Google Camera, so you can always expect that all of the features might not be available or just broken!

This GCam APK build was not primarily built for Galaxy S9+, hence it is possible that all of the camera features might not be working well. Never mind to try other Google Camera APK or other Arnova8G2 Google Camera build from the huge list, if few features do not work on this build!
