Download Google Camera 7.0 for Redmi Note 5 Pro


This is the Google Camera 7.0 APK for Redmi Note 5 Pro which is based on parrot043’s build. This is just a port of Google Camera APK and not the actual stock Google Camera 7.0 APK, so you can always expect that all of the features might not be available or just broken!

Many Thanks to vlachorumsapiens for providing a detailed analysis and proper settings to get the most out of this Google Camera 7.0 for Redmi Note 5 Pro.
Also, thanks to prlanbrate for trying this out and provide a link to the newer version.

This GCam APK build was not primarily built for Redmi Note 5 Pro, hence expect that not every feature will be working. 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!
