GCam for the Realme X2
Released in 2019, the Realme X2 is a multiple camera device powered by the Snapdragon 730. While it’s able to take good pictures, it’s not as good as some flagships and that’s where the Google Camera mod can help.
GCam is the app used on Google Pixel phones. A community mod allows us to run the app on phones like the X2 and improve photo quality and enjoy other features:
- Astrophotography mode.
- Improved dynamic range with HDR.
- Better details and JPG processing.
- Better low light/indoors performance.
- Timelapse and AR stickers.
On this page, you can find a list of stable GCam versions for the Realme X2 and some other tools that will help you take better photos.
