How to capture 48MP on Redmi Note 7 Pro GCam without ROOT?
Only the above relevant GCam supports 48MP resolution without rooting the phone but unfortunately that is only supported on Portrait mode and not on the normal HDR+ mode. So, the idea is to enable HDR+ on portrait mode and use the portrait mode for default image capturing. But the problem with this is every image captured on portrait mode is stored in its own directory.
To enable 48MP resolution picture on Redmi note 7 Pro follow the below instructions:
- Go to Settings > Back camera photo resolution > Select the 48.0 megapixels
- Then go to BSG MOD Settings > Enable Disable zoom in portrait mode
- In the BSG MOD Settings, enable Enhanced HDR+ in portrait mode
When the image is captured go to see the file information and the resolution must be 8000×6000 which makes a resolution of 48 millions of pixels or 48MP.

Portrait mode creates a separate folder. To prevent this, change the below setting:
Go to Settings > Advanced (under custom settings) > Enable Save to /DCIM/Camera
