Google Pixel 3 is undoubtedly the best smartphone camera in the smartphone market. The impressive part about the device is that it manages to beat the likes of iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with a single camera setup. As previously covered, Google’s supremacy in software and AI is what is helping Pixel 3 beat its competition to the punch. Considering that Google Pixel 3 lineup is sporting similar hardware to the competition when it comes to the SoC of the device along with the RAM, some experience Android developers have taken initiative to try and port the Google Camera app.

The porting effort is an attempt to try and bring the algorithms and AI to devices that may be more powerful in terms of the processing hardware. This is not new and developers have been successful in porting out a majority of features from the Google Pixel 3 series and Pixel 2 series to other devices. In fact, talking about Pixel 3 series, developers were also able to port the features to Google Pixel 2 lineup. Some developers are also working on porting the Google Camera software to OnePlus 6 and 6T devices in the market.
