We reported yesterday about the availability of Camera NX — a mod that allows users of older Google devices to take great Portrait pictures, which has so far been the dominion of the Pixel 2. Now, other developers have chimed in and have been successful in porting over the Portrait mode to non-Google devices running Android Oreo.

XDA Senior Member, Arnova8G2, could modify Charles Chow's Camera NX app to work on devices updated to Android Oreo such as the OnePlus 3 and 3T, Moto G5S Plus, Xiaomi Mi 5 and 5S, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (running Oreo beta). The new mod does not require root and most 64-bit on Google's latest OS should be able to run it. The mod currently works only with the rear camera and support for the front camera can be expected soon.

If you're interested in getting the mod, follow the developer's thread at the XDA forums for more information.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
