GCam for the ASUS Rog Phone II
Stable Google Camera versions for the Asus ROG Phone II (ROG 2). The 2019 ASUS flagship uses a 48MP (Sony IMX586) for the main camera and a 13MP sensor for the wide camera. For selfies, there’s a 24MP front facing camera. Like Google Pixel devices, it uses a Snapdragon 855 SoC, which essentially ensures GCam compatibility.
GCam gives you a few benefits over the stock camera app:
- Good details and dynamic range;
- Improved low light performance, with night sight;
- Features like Astrophotography, Motion Photos, Time Lapse, RAW, etc;
Below you can find some stable versions compatible with the ROG Phone 2. If you don’t know how to install apk files, read the How to Install APK files guide.
